Ramgopal Varma New Film Satya 2 Movie Review:
Looking at the recent damp-squibs of RGV including the likes of Not A Love Story, Department, 26/11 and now Satya 2, one can easily assess that the filmmaker has lost his sheen and understanding of what makes for a good story.
The lackluster script, jump cuts that make way for songs and ridiculous and garish way of shooting those songs really turn out to be criminally attrocious on your senses. The movie’s violence is not as disturbing as the violent assault on your senses. For example – Satya enters Mumbai with the objective to rule it. It’s very convinient how he gets a job in a big builder’s office where it’s not his qualification why he is hired but something else, what? We don’t know.
There’s more reference to “Company” in Satya 2 than it ever was in the film Company itself. Satya (Puneet Singh Ratn) keeps going on an on about how Company is not a company after all but a “Soch”. How there won’t be any owner to his company, how this company will be a system within a system… blah blah… none of which excite or entice you.
Sharwanand, who has already proved his mettle, has full scope for his role as don Satya and he has delivered a brilliant performance. He is very mature in actions and suits the role to a T. He carries most of the film on his shoulders. But it should be said here that viewers had lot of mercy to the don in Satya, but this new one seeks neither wrath nor sympathy of the viewers. Blame the scriptwriter for it.
In Satya, Urvasi, who played the heroine, had good scope for her role and she had delivered memorable performance in it. Whereas Anaika Soti, who appears as Satya’s girlfriend in Satya 2, has nothing much to perform, but she impresses you in song sequences. Aradhna Gupta has played a special role. She tries her best to steal the show in her brief appearance.
When compared to Satya, characters other than Satya have very less scope in Satya 2. The magic of bhaichara, Kallu maamas and Bhikus is sorely missing in this version. Others like Mahesh Thakur, Amitriyaan, Anjali Gupta, Raj Premi, Amal Sehrawat, Kaushal Kapoor and Vikram Singh have done justice to their brief roles.
Technical and Other Departments:
Satya 2 has moderate production values and Vikash Saraf’s cinematography is the main attraction in the technical front. Although Vikash relies on RGV’s trademark camera angles and close-ups, some of his shots like Eagle view camera angles are sure to impress you. He has also done good job in picturisation of song sequences.Besides story, another big reason for the success of Satya was its soundtracks. Especially, the song ‘Goli Maro Bheje Me…’ is popular even today. But Satya 2 hardly has any impressive tunes. Amar Mohile-Kary Arora’s background score is good to certain extent, but it appears to be loud in some parts.
The dialogues in Satya were another reason for its success. Satya 2 has also good dialogues, but they lack the punch of Satya. The action choreography is commendable. Other departments like art direction, costume design, make up works are also good. But the editing is not upto the mark. Jerin Jose should have trimmed certain dragging scenes and made them crispier.
There’s a person dying in every second scene, half of which are top-notch big shots either a politician or a media baron or a business tycoon. The way of killing them is well thought through by our conniving Satya who has it all worked out in his head but what it turns out onscreen is nothing but a convinient play of story – poison the tycoon, have a gun installed in a camera of a media person, shoot through a bill board or worse still switch the security of the Chief Minister of the state. It’s all so easy after all.
You’d literally want to clip the lips of this pouty actress Anaika Soti who plays Chitra in the film does nothing other than acting silly and pouting to the camera. RGV true to his fetishes with lead actresses focuses a lot on this one and what one gets to see are long slow-mo scenes of the actress pouting and posing for the camera.
This film could easily win a Razzies award if there ever was one in Hindi film industry for the worst dialogues ever. There’s zilch creativity in coining the dialogues used in this film. Sample this – “iske badle aap sabko badla milega”, “woh bahar wala hai, use bahar he rehne do” among others. Even words like “structure” “soch” “company” are repeated in every second line by the lead protagonist.
Satya 2 which comes 15 years after Satya is one of the worst works from
the stable of RGV ki Factory. The movie is clearly not a worthy
successor of its predecessor.
