Ab Tak Chhappan 2, a sequel to the 2004 crime drama, starts with Sadhu Agashe (Nana Patekar) retired and enjoying a laid-back life with his son in a village. Sadhu Agashe's character which was originally inspired by encounter specialist Daya Nayak plays with kids and goes fishing to while away his time.
The crime scene in Mumbai has just not changed and Home Minister (Vikram Gokhale) summons Sadhu Agashe to get the situation under control. However, a junior cop (Ashutosh Rana) is not happy about this decision.
Even as Sadhu Agashe goes around encountering criminals, tragedy strikes in his personal life again. This makes him take an extreme decision. Gul Panag plays the role of a crime reporter.
The story revolves around Nana Patekar and the encounters he makes. Will he bring back peace in the state or will he fail, is the story all about.
A decade later, the original film is brutally killed in what could be called a totally unnecessary sequel. Nana Patekar plays his part with ease and masters the role just like the original with some good dialogue delivery in his true style. When it comes to Gul Panag, one wonders why is she even in the film?
Raj Zutshi is a good choice to play the negative character.
Worst production qualities, horrible background music, jaded dialogues, cringe-worthy camera angles, script which is pointless and unimaginative makes this sequel quite disastrous.
Ab Tak Chhappan 2 fails to do justice to a talented performer like Nana Patekar with its horribly gone wrong plot.
Give it a miss in theaters and watch the original at home if you want to save your money!
