Review Overview

Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music

An acceptable espionage thriller.

Summary : Vishwaroopam 2 is a moderately engaging spy thriller that brings a closure to the story that began five years ago, though not in the best way possible. We would have loved to have some more excitement in the proceedings, especially in the second half. For now, it's a decent watch that you might want to see if you're interested about the tale.

Five years post the release of the first part, Kamal Hassan returns to put an end to his Vishwaroopam series that has been a long pending film. With a sublime stage set until now for a terrific tug of war between the good and bad, Kamal Haasan and his team are for a showdown.

For starters, don’t walk into this film without seeing the first part, because the sequel exactly takes off from where it left off. Kamal Haasan will leave no stone unturned to pin down his villain, and has to face a lot of obstacles on the way. The path to that, is packed with a lot of missions, twists and turns that puts the protagonist under danger as well, at places. The first half of the film, which lasts for close to 90 minutes, is a well-written and well-shot package that is easy to be engrossed into, but the film falls flat in the second half which is rather abrupt. Kamal Haasan scores as a writer with his interesting narration patterns that are exclusive to him, but we did surely wish for a power-packed second half that gave more weightage to the villains who are absent for most of the screen time.

As an actor too, Kamal scores with his fantastic dialogue delivery and body language. There’s not as much as scope as in the first part, but the actor’s presence and conviction stands tall here. Andrea has been used as a comic element, which does not work out fully, but Pooja’s role is a relief which brings color to the film.

Technically, the film falls back from it’s first part as it is isn’t too pleasing visually, bringing up functional cinematography and hurried edits. Ghibran does a great job with the songs but the background score does not have much to take home.

So toting up, Vishwaroopam 2 is a moderately engaging spy thriller that brings a closure to the story that began five years ago, though not in the best way possible. We would have loved to have some more excitement in the proceedings, especially in the second half. For now, it’s a decent watch that you might want to see if you’re interested about the tale.
