Vishwaroopam 2 Review
Kamal Haasan the actor carries the role with ease and he starts off from where he had stopped in the prequel. It's always a pleasure to see him say those catchy dialogues in the way only which he could do. Pooja Kumar has done her part well and so was the case of Andrea Jeremiah's, who gets more screen space in Vishwaroopam 2.
Vishwaroopam 2 will also be subjected to comparisons. Vishwaroopam 2 has its own share of good moments, but it couldn't carry forward that momentum till the end.
Script in Vishwaroopam 2 is great with loads of twists to pack the punch of the audience in frequent basis. Screenplay is gripping and can also be called as a piece of art as the execution is beautiful and threads get untied in an interesting manner.
Kamal Haasan's master storytelling makes this action spy thriller in to a splendid intense experience.
The best spy thrillers give us plenty of high-octane action, colourful characters who blur the line between heroes and villains, and athletic male and female leads equally capable of kicking serious butt.
In the first edition, the veteran star-actor led from the front: here the ‘dirty soldier turned bloody espionage agent’ is all thundery lines like ‘main mazhab nahin mulk ke liye khoon bahaata hoon’.
All those scenes are explained in detail in Vishwaroopam-2, so basically most of the time, Kamal goes back and forth to rekindle our memory which tests our patience. The much publicized mother sentiment sequences featuring Waheeda Rahman fails to create any impact.
On the positive note, there are some very powerful dialogues depicting the patriotism of Wisam, a Muslim espionage agent, especially his debate with Ananth Mahadevan is a clap worthy moment. The film’s biggest plus point is none other than Kamal Haasan who shines in each and every scene.
Verdict: Kamal Haasan's one-man show
