Starring Vidyut Jammwal in the lead, Commando 2 is an action-packed thriller. The movie also stars Adah Sharma, Esha Gupta, Adil Husain, and Freddy Daruwala, with an interesting cameo by Shefali Shah.
A court-martialed commando, Karanveer Singh Dogra (played by Jammwal) is on a mission to bring back laundered black money that belongs to Indians. A team of four is sent to Malaysia, wherein these individuals have their own motivation, fears, and back stories. The movie takes us on a journey to recovering India’s black money, but more importantly, on a journey where we discover the characters who help achieve the same.
The plot is peppered with humor, mind-blowing action, and quite a few twists and unpredictability.
Right off the bat, you are left slack-jawed, all thanks to Jammwal’s adrenaline-inducing stunts and gravity-defying action. From jumping through narrow windows to various backflips that he makes look seamlessly comfortable, he is the heart and the brawn of this flick. An actor who does not rely on body doubles, Jammwal’s sure to leave you impressed and how!
Along the entire movie, I genuinely laughed several times, especially when Jammwal’s hands feel warm due to friction, during the first half hour. Him feeling like his hands were burning is a really small detail, which I’m glad was brought up; huge tick-mark!
Freddy Daruwala and Shefali Shah were both entertaining and good. The latter has an ability to impress audiences while being demure yet commanding(!) so much attention!
The only not-so-great elements were a few emotional touch points and Adah Sharma’s performance, both of which could have added more to the movie than they presently do.
Scenes To Watch Out For:
- The initial introduction and the market action sequences featuring Vidyut Jammwal
- The scene right before the interval with Esha Gupta
- The plot twist that occurs at the rooftop of a building
Kudos to Deven Bhojani, the director of Commando 2, as well as Franz Spilhaus, the Stunt Coordinator. As a movie that rides on its action content, it does not disappoint at all! Individuals continue to perform backflips, flying kicks, thrusts, and punches, rather seamlessly, adding to a powerful and thrilling ebb and flow throughout the movie.
Also, a special shoutout to the Costume Designer, Manasi Aggarwal! Esha’s outfits were beyond gorgeous. Her badass, femme fatale character was enhanced with the help of her makeup, accessories, and costumes. A stellar job at making all of us crush hard on Gupta and her look!
Commando 2 – Final Verdict:
Go watch it for the action, for Vidyut Jammwal, for Esha Gupta, the action, and did I mention the action? During an interview, Jammwal claimed – and rightly so – that no other Bollywood actor can do action like he can. Watch him match this statement and more during the movie.
Watch this movie for the punches, both plot and action wise. Commando 2 is filled with beautifully choreographed stunts featuring Jammwal, which will leave you impressed, at the edge of your seats, and in awe! Basically, if an action flick is what you’re looking for, Commando 2 is it!
