Film review: Satyameva Jayate 2

Updated: Nov 27, 2021

All muscles and no masala is how we can define Satyameva Jayate 2 for you. The film is loaded with over-the-top action sequences, too much of John Abraham (the actor plays a triple role) and dialogues written by a tenth-grader. But that's not the worst part of the film as the script and its treatment are equally stale. Here's our review...

Name: Satyameva Jayate 2

Director: Milap Zaveri

Cast: John Abraham, Divya Khosla Kumar, Harsh Chhaya, Gautami Kapoor and Anoop Soni

Rating: 1/5

Films are a reflection of the society. But it hurts when a director uses a poorly-written script, loud action sequences and a stale treatment to spread the message of patriotism. Director Milap Zaveri has exactly done the same in Satyameva Jayate 2. The film is packed with 'punches'. But the only ones that viewers will see are the ones hit by muscular John Abraham. Mind you there are not just five or ten of them, but the entire film is loaded with over-the-top action scenes. You will also see cars, tables and people falling all over the place - something that you witness in a South Indian action film.

But that isn't the only thing to cringe about. Wait till you hear the characters speak. Most of the dialogues are in the form of rhyming sentences, as if an innocent tenth-grader wrote them to satiate his urge to write poetry. Divya Khosla Kumar who has made her debut as an actress has been unimpressive. Her dialogue delivery is so terrible that it seems that she is simply reading lines without feeling the moment. The film also stars actors Harsh Chhaya and Anup Soni in the supporting roles. Though both the actors have played their part well, one cannot miss Anup saying 'Savdhan Rahe Satark Rahe' in one of the scenes.

The story revolves around Dada Saheb Azad, played by John Abraham, who dies while fighting corruption. His twin sons, Satya (a home minister) and Jay (an honest police officer), also played by John Abraham, follow their father's footsteps. They are on a constant run to punish baddies by taking law in their own hands. While the idea of the script is good, it has not been handled with seriousness.

Some of the scenes are so unrealistic to digest that you would often ask how is that even possible. Take a cue from the two Johns, Satya and Jay, killing goons without being questioned for their actions, Gautami Kapoor (the twin brothers' mother) waking up from coma, the home minister (Satya) dancing at a random guy's wedding and then killing his father and Jay slapping a fellow police officer in a police station for mocking an innocent victim. I mean why would you a director approach the idea of patriotism in such a non-seriousness manner?

If that was not enough, the film's songs have also been given any importance in their placement. The songs are placed inappropriately. In fact, the film could have survived without any songs and their positioning would make you uncomfortable.

Overall, the film is bland and there is nothing great that you should expect. If you still want to watch it, enjoy at your own risk.
