Sadak 2 Review
Sadak 2 has a simple story but the execution is not that simple. Mahesh Bhatt has directed the movie after two decades and it feels as if he is still wearing the 90s’ tinted glasses on. Sadak 2 is a revamped version of the 90s Sadak and makes no sense. The film doesn’t have the tempo and the story that the audience can connect to. Many scenes are slow and boring and the story is also slow-paced. If you are bored and don’t have much to do in your schedule for today then you should give this movie a try.
Performances of the actors
Alia has performed brilliantly and has done a great job in other popular films like Udta Punjab and Highway. But she hasn’t done justice to her role in Sadak 2. Alia has delivered two monologues in the film but they lack conviction. Aditya’s performance isn’t too impressive as well. He starts off well but doesn’t have much to do in the film. Alia and Sanjay have made him invisible after a point.
