Adding up to the sequel trends, the Bhatts bring us the second installment of Murder, a 2004 release. Though released seven years ago, the film still holds the attention of the audience and obtains high TRPs when aired on small screens. The reason being simple, the spellbinding story, great music and proficient performances with sizzling chemistry makes the film a money spinner till date. Following the legacy of bringing an innovative story on high sexual content (this has always proved to be a winning blend), Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt bring to us Murder 2.
Murder 2 is set in Goa with a Christmas and New Year celebration backdrop. Huge crowd on the streets and beaches, popular tourist destination, happy atmosphere, etc makes it difficult for the authorities to trace down one serial killer, who is spoiling the entire atmosphere. A serial killer story has always proved to be interesting with high thrill and slasher content.
