Beefcake Parade

Commando 2
Director:
Deven Bhojani
Cast: Vidyut Jamwal, Adah Sharma, Esha Gupta and others
Rating: * ½

If there is a 'Commando 2', there must have been a Commando, but so generic an action film that it eludes the memory completely.

Vidyut Jamwal’s muscles undoubtedly inspired this insipid actioner, and more are on the way if the post-climax scene of this film is to be believed.

Karan returns as the muscled, parkour-flaunting commando, now in a special intelligence cell - the kind of patriotic dude, who will get himself shot to justify the ‘encounter’ of a criminal on foreign soil. This film, directed by Deven Bhojani is a great fan of demonetisation, because honest intelligence officers are determined to clean up the black money trail. They send a motley gang of cops to Malaysia to nab and transport to India, major money launderer Vicky Chaddha.

So Karan, Bakhtawar (Freddy Daruwala), a chattering female cop (Adah Sharma), and the mandatory computer geek (he is a Muslim and gets to make a desh-bhakti speech) land  up in Malaysia to nab the shape-shifting Vicky and his precious database of black money deposits.

The plot is just an excuse for the many fight sequences, beefcake display and two women - Sharma and the perpetually smirking Esha Gupta - ogling Jamwal and pronouncing him irresistible.

If only Mr. Muscle paid a little more attention to his acting—on second thoughts, why would he bother; the kind of audience that would go to watch a dumb action movie would hardly be interested in histrionics.
