Sluggish script with less eroticism makes this story hateful.
Hate Story 2 : Revenge drama is one of the most common and popular genre in Hindi cinema. But female revenge drama's are very few which are remembered till date, most popular female revenge drama's are ZAKHMI AURAT, KHOON BHARI MAANG and BANDIT QUEEN.
Some of them are B-grade flicks with A-list actress, not required to named them. Director Vishal Pandya tried to live up to that expectation but failed miserably.
Coming to performances, Surveen Chawla(as Sonika) she fails to deliver the hotness quotient which Paoli Dam made a trademark of this franchise. Jay Bhanushali(as Akshay) he is wasted and fails to impress, he was just a mannequin and hearing the directors call. Sushant Singh(as Mandar Matre) he was outstanding and probably the shinning star of this drama, after long time making his presence with a mass villainous role and stealing the show.
Story was sluggish with no twists and turns just simple revenge drama. Screenplay was inspired from some of previous female revenge drama's especially first half was almost similar to KILL BILL but second half was much better than first half where in the first half they were trying to setup the plot. Hotness quotient is the trademark of this franchise, but it was hardly 3 minutes and that to be not intense. Songs are already ruling the charts. Sunny Leone "Pink Lips" made a sudden appearance from nowhere.
On the whole, with less hotness quotient and sluggish script. It dint live up to that expectation where the makers concentrated more on the story rather than eroticism. Sushant Singh was the best thing happen in this flick, if he would have not been there then it would another B or C grade film. I would better prefer Sooraj Barjatya family drama rather than this Revenge Drama.
