Story: Sonu’s (Emraan Hashmi) quest for his personal heaven creates hell for all around him until with the help of a cop Pratap (Randeep Hooda), he breaks away from it all and does something extraordinary to make things better for the greater good of the community. Sonu is a smooth talking street-smart gun runner, who has the gift of the gab and knows his trade inside out. ACP Pratap is a hardened maverick cop, who has a personal vendetta against the gun nexus. He will go to any lengths to crack down this nexus and he handpicks Sonu to do this job, as he is the perfect candidate to enter this racket undercover and make his way to the top and expose everybody involved in the illegal gun trade. Sonu falls in love with a beautiful young doctor Jhanvi, along his journey and that throws his life’s course into a spin with out of the blue and far-reaching consequences for all three of them.
Performances: Emraan Hashmi is very good in the lead role. He suited well in the character abusive dialogues suited his mannerisms. Randeep Hooda is pretty good and his performance in the climax is neat. Esha Gupta is pretty hot in her steamy Hot scenes and Lip Locks. Acting wise she need to develop a lot. Manish Choudhary did a alright performance as the bad guy. Zeeshan Ayyub as Emraan’s friend given a decent performance. Brijendra Kala was okay as ACP Pratap. Rest of the cast offer average support.
The story line has a similarity to that of Nicholas Cage’s Lord of War (2005) film. The wallpapers takes the inspiration from Jason Statham’s Mechanic (2011). The script of this film has potential. But the director handled the subject amateurishly. Screenplay of the film is not up to the mark and reminds us of their earlier flicks Jannat, Blood Money and Crook. Where Hero works in the crime world Tries to change and from there whole look will change. Director did not put any lead scenes that built tempo. Music by Pritam is Very good. Background music of the movie is adequate. Dialogues are a bit abusive but OK. Cinematography is alright. Editing is not up to the mark.
First half of the film is pretty routine as it establishes the characters and love track and then reveals a twist. The second half is better. Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Intimate Scenes and Music are the positives of Jannat 2. On the flip side its regular story, screenplay, narration and runtime. On a whole, it’s a disappointment to the crowds who come to theater expecting Jannat range flick.
