Kick 2 Review
Tollywood appears to have missed a hat-trick with Kick 2 after blockbusters like Baahubali and Srimanthudu. But it did not miss it's winning streak. Kick 2 comes out as a winner if you are comfortable watching the same old slapstick comedy entertainer with a bit of twist here and there.
'Kick' was very successful because of the high entertainment quotient. But in 'Kick 2', the emphasis is more on the story and director Surender Reddy didn't deviate from it. The dose of sentiment is good and didn't go overboard. Some scenes which show the plight of the villagers and how desperate they are to get rid of gruesome Tagore have been shot really well. Manoj Paramhamsa's cinematography is topnotch and the BGM of Thaman is gripping.
All in all, 'Kick 2' is a very good entertainer with a good message.
On the whole, Kick 2 is a total mass Ravi Teja film which has entertainment and emotions in equal doses. But lack of basic entertainment in the second half let’s down the film to an extent. However, a hilarious first half, beautiful songs and Ravi Teja’s strong screen presence in the film over shadow these basic flaws and decently entertain you with its emotional content.
Kick 2 leaps out a bit from the success and smartness of the Kick 1, in the sense that it fails to live up to the ingenuity or freshness of its original. There are countless no. of considerably worse commercial films one could point to, but that doesn’t change the fact that, while Kick was a breath of fresh air, rightly exalted for its interesting new perspective and competent execution, the sequel is an sterile, snail paced third-rate offer at best. Even with no expectations and if your idea of entertainment is some senseless comic acts, even then you will be completely disappointed with this sequel.
Except few sequences, ‘Comfort’ did not give us much kick though it is not a sequel to Kick. So all ‘kick’ fans who are expecting double kick in Kick 2 can watch the film based on your ‘comfort’.
