Gadar Ek Prem Katha (2001) was such an iconic movie that it has now created high expectations for its second instalment (Gadar-2). So let's try to know where it is in comparison to its previous instalment.

The story is a continuation of its previous part, in which Tara Singh (Sunny Deol) and Shakina (Ameesha Patel), who faced the heat of the country's partition in 1947, have grown and reached the year 1971. Once again, relations between these two countries (India and Pakistan) have soured because of the Bangladesh issue. There is a war situation between India and Pakistan, and the Indian army takes the help of a few truck drivers, including Tara Singh, for the supply of arms and ammunition in the border area. In this mission, Tara Singh and a few other truck drivers were caught badly in that war, and many of them were captured by the Pakistani army and sent to Pakistani jails. When Tara's son Jeetey (Utkarsh Sharma) comes to know about this news, he secretly, with a fraudulent passport and visa, goes to Pakistan to find his father, where he meets Khushi (Simrat Kaur), who falls in love with him. Does he meet his father there and get him back to India? What happens to his newly-started love story with Khushi there? To know the answers to these questions, one must watch the movie.

Sunny Deol is the heart and soul of the film. Unlike Gadar 1, this time once again Sunny Deol attracted the audience with his nice action scenes and fight sequences. Ameesha Patel has not much to do in the film, yet she justified her role. Utkarsh Sharma has much to do in the film. He has shared much screen space with Sunny Deol and explored himself as an action hero. Actress Simrat Kaur, working opposite Utkarsh Sharma, looked pretty on the screen. Although she has hardly had to do much, she fits the role. Apart from them, Manish Wadhwa, who has played the role of a lead villain, has powerfully delivered his performances.

Apart from a good storyline, the music of Mithoon is another strength of the film. The recreation of two old songs, "Main Nikla Gaddi Leke" and "Ud ja kaale kawa," enhances the beauty of the film. The other songs are also quite entertaining.

Director Anil Sharma has tried his level best to match the level of the iconic Gadar movie released in 2001, but still, we can't compare both these movies. Gadar-2 in itself is a perfect action dhamaal movie, and ideally we should not compare it with the iconic Gadar (2001).

Overall, to a greater extent, Gadar-2 meets the expectations of the audience. This is full of action and will give you a feeling of patriotism. I think no Indian should miss it. So why wait? Go and watch it in your nearest cinema hall.
