Sadak 2 has had a rollercoaster journey since its inception. After the hype of Mahesh Bhatt’s directorial return after twenty years, as first collaboration with Alia Bhatt and taking his hit Sadak forward, the film was at the receiving end of trolling amid the nepotism debate in the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and Mahesh Bhatt being summoned in the court. The movie finally was streamed on Disney+Hotstar on Friday and opened to mixed responses from the critics and viewers.

The Story of “Sadak 2”
After her mother, Shakuntala Desai’s death under mysterious, and shadowy circumstances, Aarya (Alia Bhatt) the scion of the Desai Group of Industries vows to avenge the murder and bring the culprits to justice. Moreover, in order to fulfill her mother’s last wish, Aarya embarks on a journey to Kailash and the story of ‘Sadak 2’ unfolds unexpectedly.
A Small Review of the Movie
Aarya’s entire family – comprising the Maasi-turned-stepmother Nandini Maa (Priyanka Bose) and father Yogesh (Jisshu Sengupta) – are under the spell of ‘Dhongi Sadhu’ Gyaan Prakash (Makarand Deshpande) but Aarya, all of 20, knows better. She is completely convinced that her beloved mother died owing to an extravagant plan hatched by Gyaan Prakash and that ‘disease’ Nandini, Aarya launches an online campaign called ‘India Fights Fake Gurus’.
She makes her motivation is to disclose the truth behind these supposed messengers of God and debunk the myth and mystery surrounding the situation. While chasing her mission, Aarya falls in love with a former troll – a very good-looking musician with issues of his own, Vishal (Aditya Roy Kapur). Both of them embark on a pilgrimage to fulfill Aarya’s “maa-ka-aakhri-sapna” (Aarya’s mother’s last wish) of visiting Kailash on her 21st birthday.
The response of the Film Critics
The critics took very harshly to the film, and said, “it is rather disappointing to see a filmmaker of Mahesh Bhatt’s stature, who is making his comeback after twenty years as a director with ‘Sadak 2’. No offense… but why this, Bhatt Saab? They say “Sadak 2’, for everyone involved with this project, is a road that should have been a ‘road not taken’ in a nutshell. And for those who are going to watch this purely for sentimental reasons, are forewarned: This Sadak leads nowhere; turns back. Jai Guru Ji!
In the movie, we see that the only character who keeps struggling against the lead storyline is Sanjay Dutt. The fans with long memories can recall how Dutt, never a great actor, had screen presence, and how he and Pooja Bhatt (she is the woman, whom we see infrequent flashbacks in the sequel) made a pair we love.
In these superseding years during which he experienced several professional and personal turbulences, Dutt learned how to fill out a role, and made us believe. Despite all the ridiculousness, and absurdity, he still stays the last man standing. But it doesn’t do this amazingly tacky film the least bit of good.
Unlike the usual trend of opinions, and reviews pouring in early in the morning after theatrical release, Sadak 2 responses started coming in after it streamed at 7.30 PM. The critics seemed to be very angry and did not take it too kindly to the film. One of the leading trade analysts Taran Adarsh termed the movie ‘unbearable as a One Word Review’.
He added that ‘lethargic and lifeless screenwriting’ and ‘lackluster plot’, proved to be its undoing while adding that the music did not work either. Adarsh called it a ‘Terrible waste’ of the brand of Sadak and the talent associated with the movie we’d enjoyed years ago.
TamilRockers Presented the Movie on its Online Streaming Platform
Unfortunately, the online piracy promoters got a copy of the movie and provided its fans and viewers after just a few hours of its release.
