Kamal Haasan is back on the silver screen with his long-pending film Vishwaroopam 2 and it is getting released today to the world audience after a span of four years. Actually, this film is in the cold storage for the longest time due to the financial disturbances involved in the release.
Vishwaroopam 2 starts from where it was ended in Vishwaroopam 1. After succeeding in the secret mission of elimination Osama Bin Laden, Wasim Ahmad Kashmiri (Kamal Hassan) goes back to the UK. There he gets into another mission of rescuing the nation from the terrorists as they plan to explode the explosive missiles hidden in the deep ocean.
At this juncture, Wasim would be able to protect those missiles from exploding or not unfolds on the silver screen.
Actors & Performances:
Kamal Hassan: As we all know, he is a flawless actor and as I said he delivered an outstanding performance in acting and doing stunts. As an actor, he is always at his best.
Waheeda Rehman is the surprise factor in the movie and she gave a tough fight to Kamal Hassan in acting in some of their scenes.
Pooja Kumar is fine in her role and Andrea Jeremiah did perform some good stunts in the movie.
The release gap between Vishwaroopam & Vishwaroopam 2 is touted to be the first unfortunate thing that happened on a negative front and even the majority group among the audience also lost their interest on this movie as they watched the first part four years back.
Coming to the film, Kamal Haasan’s script turned out as a weak one compared to the first part as the thrilling impact got lessened and it makes the audience to feel bored in some scenes. Well, with Omar’s (Rahul Bose) entry into the story paces up the screenplay to a point and gradually it goes down after some duration.
After watching the second part, we get a feeling like – If Vishwaroopam 1& 2 were made in a single film then it would be a good film rather than breaking it into two and making the second part as impactless.
Well, the damage has been already made and Vishwaroopam 2 disappoints the audience in a bigger way.
CG work in the movie is mediocre and even the songs from Ghibran also turned out as duds. Kamal Haasan fails in creating the magic in the Vishwaroopam 2 with his screenplay.
Final Verdict: Missile Misfired.
