The word “Camp” relates to fun, thrill and adventure and this very word that is used with none other than BHATTS (Mahesh Bhatt and Vikram Bhatt). Bhatts’ Camp has produced many movies that have been applauded by the viewers, be they be controversial or message oriented. They know the mindset of the audience and how to penetrate that. In fact they have developed a new kind of cinema and its audience, believe it or not. Their path breaking movies have always left audience with the acceptance of different subjects that were not earlier explored in main stream cinema, for instance movies like Arth, Saraansh, Naam, Daddy, Awargi, Zakhm, Tamanna, Jism, Raaz and Zaher etc. The degree of their genre deviates to a greater extent. After Jannat’s success they bring Emraan Hashmi again in Jannat 2 and kudos to their choice for doing so.
Jannat 2 has a simple plot. Sonu Dilli aka KKC (Emraan Hashmi) is involved in arms trafficking along with his friend named Balli (Zeshan Ayub). ACP Pratap (Randeep Hoda) lost his wife in an accident and since then his mission revolves around eradicating the illegal use of arms and ammunitions. Pratap uses and manipulates Sonu Dilli to work for him so that he can crackdown the head dealers of arms trafficking. Sonu on the other hand falls in love with Jhanvi (Esha Gupta) who wants to live a simple life that must be free from illegality. Things turn around when Sonu comes to know (After marrying Jhanvi) that her father is the person who is the head of arms trafficking, Mangal Singh Tomar (Manish Chaudhry). Now Sonu has to decide to still help Pratap, stay loyal to Mangal Singh or leave the country with his love – Jhanvi.
As far as the performances are concerned every actor in the movie excels and shines. Emraan Hashmi is a fine actor and there is no second opinion to that as he always surprises his viewers in one way or the other. In this particular movie he is extremely different both in terms of performance and the way he speaks, his very first scene/dialogue will let you feel the difference and you will love his character. This is one of his finest performances, undeniably. Randeep Hoda is a talent that has never been tapped properly and this is the reason why this amazing actor has so few films in his sleeves. The actor who started his career back in 2001 with Monsoon wedding has only performed in 10 movies (including this one). The interesting thing is that he performed the roles of a cop in “D”, “Risk”, “Once Upon A time in Mumbai” and “Jannat 2” and he is such a blessed actor that all his performances are distinctive from one another. In Jannat 2 Randeep Hoda performs a role that is very complicated, not many actors in the industry can perform such roles, he at one end is evil and cold blooded, on the other hand he has a soft heart as well and last but not the least he is over-shadowed by his past. A brilliant performance in every scene in which he appears on the screen. Watch out his wrath, shock and helplessness in the climax when he calls out “Emergency”.
Esha Gupta is good, as a debutante she performs really fine. Manish Chaudhry is also a surprise to watch. In his last movie “Blood Money” he performed a role of sophisticated villain whereas in Jannat 2 he catches his audience with surprise. Zeshan Ayub in his 3rd movie impresses remarkably, he is natural and very talented. Brijendra Kala, like always, justifies his performance. Kunal Deshmukh (Director) and Sanjay Masoom (Dialogue) have the ability to produce magic on screen. Music is good, not excellent.
To many people Jannat 2 can be an action flick but in reality it is a well made movie with all the ingredients (including friendship, sacrifice, love, thrill, action and drama) in right quantity and very well executed. The end of the movie is very practical and very different as compared to other movies.
In short Jannat 2 is an amazing experience for those who enjoy great script, flawless performances, interesting action and “True Bollywood Cinema”. A Must watch!
