Commando 2 – The Black Money Trail is one of those fabulously foolish films that make you laugh and groan at the same time. There is one crackling twist in this tale but the rest of it is marvelously low IQ and in places, downright alarming – producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah and director Deven Bhojani actively endorse encounter killings lauding them as the nayi soch of a new generation of Indian police officers. They also manage to bung in demonetization and farmer suicides. But despite the headline referencing, the film remains a cartoon.

Vidyut Jammwal is a solid action star and his stunts are the only reason you manage to sit through this never-ending tale of ‘catch-Vicky Chadda-if-you-can’. The opening scene is spectacular. Sadly, the cat and mouse game between the cops and the criminal is not one bit exciting as the story pretends to be more intelligent than it is.

The jaw-droppingly agile Jammwal does what is required, but he needs better stunts. The other men are good with their fists too, but why have such lame ‘firangi’ baddies? As for the ladies, Gupta is made to narrow her eyes all the time, and Sharma who starts off quite funny as a shopaholic ditsy cop, becomes repetitive.

And nothing can be worse for an out-and-out-actioner than to be shackled by sarkaari slogans.

Apart from Jammwal, only Adah Sharma is notice-worthy as a Gucci loving, trigger happy cop from Hyderabad.

Commando 2 lacks heart and is all muscles. If may not even quench your thirst for some adrenaline-pumping stunts.

On the whole, COMMANDO 2 is a predictable entertainer that would appeal only to its target audience.

The film’s cinematography (Chirantan Das) is really remarkable. The way they have shot the foreign locales is really commendable. The film’s editing (Amitabh Shukla, Sanjay Sharma) is average. A special mention to the film’s action director (Franz Spilhaus) for the breath taking action sequences.

Everyone’s collective commitment to not act at any given circumstance is duly noted in scenes that bizarrely transform a bedroom seductress into a bereaved mother and bedroom seductress again or constrain one guy to keep a straight-face and request another guy with, ‘Single, single mat lo. Seedha chauka maaro. Come on, get me excited.’

There’s more unintended hilarity and very little combat to justify the existence of a sequel. And while Jammwal definitely can score in the daredevil department, he needs a script much more robust than his physique for the viewer to endure everything between the stunt scenes.

Commando 2‘s endlessly mindless proceedings do not come anywhere close to fulfilling that criterion.
