Hate Story 2 does have few moments to keep you engaged
Bhatt camp had successfully launched franchises of erotic-sex thrillers like Raaz , Jannat , Murder and now Hate Story. The combo of skin-show, melodious music and powerful performances gives Hate Story 2 an extra edge over others.
An young and innocent photographer, Sonika, is trapped and being abused by a powerful politician, Mandar. She heaves a sigh of relief after one of her co-worker,Akshay, rescues and takes her away from the wing of dirty politician. However, their happiness is short-lived as the politician discovers their hide-out and strangles them to death. Luckily , Sonika survives the attempted murder and avenges the killing of her boyfriend.
First time director, Vishal Pandya does a fine job in keeping audience on their toes with Hate Story 2. What works is the cat-mouse game between Surveen Chawla and Sushant Singh and engaging moments in the film along with melodious music and commendable performances. The romantic track between Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanusali is half-baked with less-impacting climax which could have been better. Screenplay is average. Cinematography is good. Art direction is decent. Surveen Chawla gives a brilliant performance as a woman who wrecks vengeance on so- called godfather. Sushant Singh is outstanding as a corrupt and selfish politician.
Overall, Hate Story 2 does have few moments to keep you engaged. Decent 2.75/5
