'Vishwaroopam 2' Movie Review: A Disappointing Sequel To A Classic

A still from the movie Vishwaroopam

New Delhi: The long awaited sequel to Kamal Haasan's, 'Vishwaroopam' finally hits the theatres, today. The movie kicks off from where it left in the first part, where we see Kamal Hassan's character Wasim suffering from PTSD after his exploits in Taliban. The first part of the movie received a lot of appreciation from the critics, which raised a lot of expectations for the sequel. It is a decent movie in general but however it fails to deliver the quality of it's predecessor.

To talk about the positives, the movie is well paced, perfect for a spy thriller. The writing could have been better, but it's still decent. The flashback scenes in the movie are amazing, and not to mention, Kamal Haasan is once again brilliant. Other than him, Jaideep Ahlawat who plays Saleem is also good. The movie also features some good action sequences in the later half.

However, the first half is tiresome with no good action sequences. The VFX are really bad, which makes it annoying. The music also fails to deliver, and seems to be misplaced in many parts of the movie. If you have not watched the first part, you might feel confused.
Originally, Kamal Hassan wanted to release the sequel of the movie, a week after the first part released, but instead the movie got released five years later. It would have been much better, if the movie was released closer to the first part, as the audience seemed to have moved on.

To sum it up, go check out the movie, if you enjoyed the first part. But don't go in with too much expectations, and you won't be disappointed.
