Often the disease is not understood, so many medicines are given that one or the other will be taken, and the patient will be cured. Director Milap Zaveri has done the same thing in ‘Satyamev Jayate 2′. Peasants’ pain, corruption, gang begging children, mother in a coma, brother’s love, a father who plows, God-Allah-Waheguru, Karva Chauth fasting, etc. By combining the above formulas, he has prepared the film. Milap has taken ideas from films of the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Movies like Deewar, Shahenshah, Deshpremi, Gabbar is Back, Karan Arjun, Amar Akbar Anthony are remembered while watching ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’. The thousandth copy of these films looks like ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’.
Milap Zaveri has shot many scenes in different styles and somehow combined them and made a film by making a story.
Story of Satyamev Jayate 2
Talk about the story. Satya Balram Azad (John Abraham) tries to get the Anti-Corruption Bill passed in the Legislative Assembly but fails. Angered by this, he goes out in the night and kills the corrupt like ‘Shahenshah.’ The task of catching this killer is given to police officer Jai Balram Azad (John Abraham), Satya’s brother. Both of them, Dadasaheb Balram Azad (John Abraham), were killed while fighting against corruption. Since then, his wife has been in a coma. Together, the two brothers make fun of corrupt people and take revenge for the murder of their father.
In the middle of this story, all the things like rape, women’s power, patriotism have also been added, and somehow the story has been pulled. Every scene of the film is very loud. Screaming actors and noisy background music make these scenes even louder. Every character of the film dramatically enters the scene and behaves, crossing the limits of theatricality, making the film difficult to cope with. It seems that all this spectacle is over quickly because theaters feel like a prison.
Milap Zaveri as a director, has assembled the scenes. Whether it is an artist or a technician, everyone has got loud work done. Even now, they associate rape with robbing a woman of honor and suggest an alternative to suicide after robbing her of respect. Wearing bangles is associated with shame. There is a lot of rhyme in the dialogues of the film. Cinematography is fine. The songs only increase the length of the film.
In double or triple roles, such actors are taken who specialize in acting. It is not easy to see John Abraham in a triple role. Everywhere they look the same, expressionless. He was not made for dancing, and he was bad in the emotional scene. The fighting became exaggerated. When the plow was hit on the ground, the ground exploded. When punched, the table broke into two pieces. They were able to do this job well. Divya Khosla Kumar didn’t have much to do. Other actors were seen screaming in the name of acting.
