Review: The sequel to 2020 action thriller, Khuda Haafiz, begins with Sameer (Vidyut Jammwal) and Nargis (Shivaleeka Oberoi) struggling to heal from the trauma of the latter’s abduction and gangrape in a fictional country called Noman. Nargis is still emotionally scarred and embittered but after a therapy session, she agrees to adopt Sameer’s friend’s five-year-old orphaned niece, Nandini. However, their happiness is short-lived as Nandini is taken and becomes a victim of a heinous crime.
What follows is the standard trope of a Bollywood revenge drama — power play by the rich spoilt boy’s grandmother (a ubiquitous evil Thakur playbed by Sheeba Chaddha), getting rid of the prime witness, a corrupt cop and the bloodthirsty hero going after the perpetrators, vigilante style.
Even though the premise is anything but novel and the treatment suffers from sensationalism in a number of instances, the movie is top-notch cinematically. As a director, Faruk Kabir handles the reins of the film well, as Jitan Harmeet Singh provides him able support as a cinematographer. Unsurprisingly, though, the action is outstanding — especially when Sameer takes on a jail bully, Jaiswal, who’s given a contract to kill him. It’s easily one of the most memorable scenes. The chase in the climax is just as thrilling.
