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.

Stay clear of fresh proposals and also from those people who are known to give unwanted advice. You are better judge of your condition and take all measures to protect your job or financial interests. At a family gathering you may not like the overtures or attention of a person who is a pest, say so in your own interest. You will not be hurting anyone.
