Jannat 2: Movie Review    Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Esha Gupta, Manish Choudhary

Direction: Kunal Deshmukh

Rating: **1/2

Emraan Hashmi is back on the silver screen to once again find his “Jannat” on earth but though this so-called-sequel has an engaging lore, it remains trapped in the bowels of some googly-eyed Bolly romance.

The background
Sonu Dilli (Emraan Hashmi) is an illegal arms dealer with ample amount of street smarts and a silver tongue. So you know the “Raaz” of the peppy one-liners now! All starts well for this “bi-ness”man until he suddenly decides to fall in love with Jhanvi (Esha Gupta) (with a stress on the word ‘suddenly’).

But madam doctor has a simple life of healing people for free and wants a regular guy and so our comic criminal has to reform himself.

But despite the obvious problems of finding a good job for an ex-con these days, those problems are hardly of any consideration to Mr. “Kutti Kameeni Cheez” aka Sonu who faces the whip from ACP Pratap Raghuvanshi (Randeep Hooda) and is forced to become an informer.

Now Sonu’s life stands on a knife edge and he must find a way to escape the murky alleys of Delhi to a new life with his lady love.

The story
Though touted as a sequel Jannat 2 is a standalone venture with just the leading man and the director as common to the 2008 blockbuster and sadly this crime thriller has one of the most age old diseases of Bollywood thrillers- “love at first sight”.

Yup it had its soul in the right place and had a gripping premise for something of a novelty in Bollywood but alas romantic ‘tamasha’ got the better of it. No I am not saying that Jannat 2 offers some mind-blowing insight into the previously uncharted territory of arms dealing rackets but it did have the foothold.
