Has its few moments, dialogues and Nana Patekar, but nothing path breaking compared to the part one.
Following the current questionable trend of making weak sequels of some well made films, here is another of those attempts made by a different team trying to en-cash the cult status of its original released a decade back in 2004.
To mention its few merits, Nana Patekar once again proves to be the major pull in the film playing Sadhu Agashe, the encounter specialist and it all begins on a promising note exactly from where they left it open-ended in the original. The initial 20 minutes set the mood in with few notable punchy dialogues and an energetic background score coming at the right moments. But as soon as Nana joins the force again and begins his encounter missions as per his own questionable style, the film goes back to all routine standards with nothing new to offer to the viewers in terms of storyline, execution or performances.
The camera-work awfully tries to imitate RGV in an amateurish manner throughout the film and Nana Patekar starts sleepwalking in his act unexpectedly post the enjoyable initial moments. All the cuss words in its dialogues get muted as per the new guidelines of the Censor board, brutally hurting their final impact quite annoyingly and the climax doesn't turn out to be anything exciting or innovative at all as compared to its impressive original (though written with all good intentions against the corrupt politicians).
In short, debutant director Aejaz Gulab fails to materialize on the ground already there and delivers a below average film with only a few worth mentioning features namely the well written lines, background score and action sequences. However I strong feel that its theme music should have been used repeatedly in the backdrop instead of playing the unnecessary variations diluting the overall effect.
Moreover with just OK performances coming from seasoned actors such as Vikram Gokhale, Ashutosh Rana, Dilip Prabhawalkar, Raj Zutshi and Gul Panag, AB TAK CHHAPPAN 2 (a song-less thriller) can surely be rated as a great opportunity missed by the team to move one step ahead than its part one despite having the same Sadhu Agashe in the cast.
