Behind the Movie Satya 2: Brand RGV used to rule the Indian film market few years ago and ‘Satya’ was one such film which ripped off the real material of mafia. Now, a sequel to the same with a brand new star cast will raise the interest but at the same time RGV’s ruthless saga of failures will scare some of us. With all these beliefs running through our minds, let us see how far RGV showed his olden touch.
In the Movie Satya 2: Movie begins with introduction to System, its Dynamism and its Adaptability with changing times. In comes into the story is Satya (Puneet Singh Ratn) landed in Mumbai on an unknown mission meets his friend Nara (Amitriyan). Fast on to the task, Satya joins as an advisor to builder Lahoti (Mahesh Thakur), clears an illegal land deal killing the opposition builder and police officer with a perfect sketch and execution. In parallel, there is a love story of Satya with village girl friend Chitra (Anaika Soti).
Lahoti senses the criminal spark in Satya and introduces him to other illegal business tycoons in Mumbai. Satya formulizes a virtual Company with no name (strange???) after analyzing the mistakes committed by past Mafia Dons like Dawood Ibrahim, Abu Salem, Chota Rajan etc. There is a vague target to serve the common man using this Company and thus formulates an un-perfect System with an elusive financial structure which produces a product called ‘Fear.’ Accomplishing the first drill, Company murders top industrialist, top cop and a top media person in society in no time. A shaken Government appoints senior police officer Purushottam Naik to crack the Company. What happened to Satya’s girl friend Chitra and friend Nara? Why Satya planned to finish the present Chief Minister? All these form the rest of unfinished climax with answers left in ‘Satya 3.’
Values & Out of the Movie Satya 2: As a film maker RGV has long ago lost his credibility. This project has just extended his mental imbalance with gruesome criminal ideology. There are plenty of loopholes in the script with many unrealistic killings and plenty of randomly ignored elements. Yet, it is the RGV’s adept knowledge in arranging the frames with creative camera angles of Vikash Saraf (Ex: Eagle Eye Camera Handling) with deafening background score from Amar Mohile, Kary Arora has blown some sort of conviction into the scenes. Point by point, RGV took to extreme cinematic liberties to show whatever he wants. Insincerity of RGV towards the work was consistently evidential. Neither RGV provided clarity on the business of Company or the way to accomplish its unmentioned goals. With lots of confusion and obscure, unsettled, uncertain episodes driving the story, audience are sure to start scratching their heads.
Performance wise, Puneet showed the needed intensity in some key scenes with casual formals, loose hair and frameless glasses. The romantic track between Puneet and Anaika Soti is poorly etched. Anaika’s excitement to ooze the shapes is well trapped in RGV style with anarchistic camera angles. Of the remaining artists, no one needs a special mention. Even on dialogues front, Radhika Anand’s work was missing in coherence. Production values of Sumanth Kumar Reddy and Mammoth Media are just passable.
Commercially, ‘Satya 2’ seems to be made on a meager budget and like all the RGV movies, even a week of run or satellite rights are enough to safeguard the interests of producers. Standards wise, ‘Satya 2’ is a subjacent product to ‘Satya.’
