Rani Mukerji & Vishal Jethwa SHOW
Ever since I heard about Mardaani's sequel, I had great expectations coz of the only one lady, Rani Mukerji and i had some regrets that I missed Mardaani in theaters and decided to watch it in theaters on its first day.
The cat and mouse game between the fierce cop Shivani Roy and a serial killer who loves to rape, torture and kills young girls. He is wild, cunning beastly and unpredictable behaviour with a dark past and is on run. Will Shivani succeeds in her mission forms the crux of the story.
Well, the fast paced narration and the background score keeps you engaged in this gritty thriller. The performances of the lead and the sub characters were sumptuous. Once again, Rani didn't disappoint me, she has got the right attittude as the SP Shivani Roy and was very convincing. But the debutante Vishal Jethwa stole the whole show. He was absolutely magnificent. The character was well constructed might be inspired from Korean Serial Killer Movies.
Gopi Puthren directorial debut didn't go in vain but his scripted demanded more justification of several scenes which will make us to think, "How did he??" "Is it possible". Could have avoided those when compared to Mardaani which was very raw, unpredictable and more intense. Another plus point of the movie was there were no songs and John Stewart Eduri scored the background music of the movie and it took the movie to another level. Jishnu Bhattacharjee's camera was also an added advantage even though it was not challenging.
Female empowerment / feminine speech (was good) delivered by Rani Mukerji which took around 5 minutes during the tension gripped scenes. Wrongly placed. That was actually a speed breaker and it was predictable towards the end.
All in whole, Mardaani 2 is a gripping thriller drama and watch out for Vishal Jethwa, a new star in the rising.
Mardaani or Mardaani 2.. I will definitely go for Mardaani..
