Movie review: Nana Patekar’s shines in the otherwise drab Ab Tak Chhappan 2
Nana Patekar, who is known for his power packed performance and anger, made a comeback with his crime flick Ab Tak Chhappan 2, which released today. The 64-yewar old actor is the soul of the film, who will not disappoint you in the film but the story might.
The film is a sequel of 2006 Ab Tak Chhappan, which too featured Nana Patekar in the lead. The story begins with the sequel where the prequel was over. After the death of his wife encounter specialist Sadhu Agashe (Nana Patekar) quits the police job and starts living with his son in a village. Due to the alarming crime in Mumbai, Police force calls Sadhu back to join the duty in Mumbai. Agashe , who heads the encounter team working towards crime eradication. Actress Gul Panag , who plays the role of a crime reporter, who takes Sadhu’s help to complete the book of her late father.
Ashutosh Rana who plays the role of Suryakant in encounter squad team, does not like the fact that Sadhu leads the team.
So how Nana Patekar fights crime despite of the involvement of underworld and big names in Politics, go and watch on theatres.
Directed by Aejaz Gulab, the movie is not able to engage you as the till the climax, which could have been done in a better manner. No denying the fact that the movie do not have any new element in it, which makes it a complete disappointment as compared to the prequel.
The presence of a powerful actor like Patekar is admirable. He plays Agashe with the same integrity and passion on-screen. And that is probably the only thing which is right in the movie. Apart from Patekar’s on-screen presence everything else seems to fail. While Patekar is impressive as always, Gul Panag who plays a crime reporter and Ashutosh Rana who plays Agashe’s jealous colleague have performed well too.
Watch it or not
The film lacks the originality of Ab Tak Chhappan, so watch it only if you are a diehard Nana Patekar fan.
Ab Tak Chhappan 2 fails to match up the prequel level.
