Director: Mahesh Bhatt

Mahesh Bhatt is back as a director with Sadak 2. Sadak was one of the highest-grossing Hindi movie of the year 1991. Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Deepak Tijori, Sadashiv Amrapurkar were in the prominent roles in that movie. Except Sanjay Dutt, none others could get a chance in part 2 of the film.
Story revolves around Ravi Kishore (Sanjay Dutt) who runs a tour & travel agency. Aarya Desai (Alia Bhatt) booked a trip to Kailash 3 months back but in-between Ravi lost his wife Pooja (Pooja Bhatt) in an accident so decided to close his company. Ravi gives an option to Aarya but she insists to go by his cab only. A situation comes when Ravi had no choice but to take her to this trip. Ravi himself drives the car and on the way she asks him to take her boyfriend Vishal (Aditya Roy Kapur). A twist comes on their way when some goons come to kill Aarya and Vishal. Makarand Deshpande has played the character of a fraud baba who claims to be the godman. He and Aarya’s father (Jisshu Sengupta) was involved in this business of God. To know what happens at the end one should see the film.
Songs are quite good. The music of Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari, Samidh Mukherjee, Urvi and Suniljeet are quite impressive.
Sanjay Dutt has justified his role and to the extent even Alia Bhatt has also done a good job but unfortunately other actors like Aditya Roy Kapur, Gulshan Grover and Makrand Deshpande etc. had hardly anything to do in this film. Poor storyline has ruined almost the other good things in this film. This, we can say is the under utilisation of the talents of some of our big actors of Bollywood. The talents like Makarand Deshpande and Gulshan Grover are completely under utilised.
Sadak 2 has nothing to do with the original Sadak. There is no correlation. This is not even 10 percent of the previous instalment. The same old pair Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhutt could have done better. Such movie is not really expected from the director like Mahesh Bhatt.
Overall, this film is not upto the expectations. Watching Sadak 2 is like entering into an accident-prone area. Even after driving more than 2 hours you won't reach your desired destination. So, better be at home and do something else. Good to see once, if you are a hard-core fan of Sanjay Dutt.
