Hate Story 2 REVIEWS

No Erotica But Superb Thrills

By Joginder Tuteja, MovieTalkies.com, 19 July 2014 3 / 5

Erotica? You must be kidding! From 'E' to 'A', there is no trace whatsoever of erotica of any sorts. If a minute long bikini scene and a couple of kisses could qualify as an erotica then practically every second Bollywood flick could be placed under this genre. So yeah, do keep your fantasy alive for another day as this ain't what makes for a skin show affair for an eye candy.

Which brings us to the second most important selling point of the film - the 'thrills'. So are they in the offering? Oh ample, and this is what makes Hate Story 2 a true genuine dramatic thriller that makes for a worthy successor in the franchise. This story is pretty much set on the hate factor and in that aspect, director Vishal Pandya scores really well. Coming from the man who made his big screen debut with a reasonably well made but pretty much forgotten 'Three - Love, Lies, Betrayal' half a decade back, Hate Story 2 turns out to be a much polished affair.

The film boasts of one of the best starts for a Bollywood flick as it comes straight to the point. An attempted murder followed by a couple of chases and a few dramatic encounters pretty much establishes that Surveen Chawla is living a horrific life and a politician Sushant Singh (thankfully not stereotyped) is her tormentor. It is a game of life and death being played between them on the board of chess, well literally, and that continues right till the end.

In the middle of this all there are some 'my dad used to say it all' pointers thrown in that demonstrate the regressive persona of Sushant who neither wants his mistress to love him nor worries about being hailed as mard ki aulaad when challenged by the hero (Jay Bhanushali), or if we could call him one. Frankly, Jay's is the most loosely written (and even enacted) character in the film which actually manages to bring the  pace of the narrative down practically every time it appears. Really, either it should have been just a cameo or given more substance. Here, it is suspended in nothingness as a result of which there is hardly any sympathy generated amongst the viewers.

A Mixed Bag

By Nishevitha Vijayanand, MovieTalkies.com, 23 June 2014 2 / 5

After the first installment of erotic thriller Hate Story, the makers come up with the second which is aptly titled Hate Story 2. Directed by Vishal Pandya, the film sees the debut of former television star and Punjabi films heroine Surveen Chawla in Bollywood along with yet another television star, Jay Bhanushali. The first installment of this franchise had decent music and expectations are that the same would be true of this film too. But unlike the earlier film which had a single music director, this time we have multiple composers including Mithoon, Rashid Khan and Meet Bros Anjjan sharing the musical credits along with Lakshmikant Pyarelal whose song from Dayavan has been recreated for this film. With roughly a track per composer (not counting their remixes), it sure will be interesting to see how this musical experiment has turned out.

The album opens with the classic Lakshmikant – Pyarelal track from Dayavan, Aaj Phir Tumse Pyar which has been specially recreated for this movie. Recreated by Arko who has thankfully not done any major tampering to this simple yet melodious tune of LP, the end product has turned out quite well. Arijit Singh and Samira Koppikar contribute majorly with their vocals in preserving the sanctity of the tune thus letting us to appreciate the track. But unfortunately for the listener, the joy is short-lived since the makers have also thrust a remix of this melody on the hapless listener. DJ Shiva does the honors and yes, it is best avoided!

Kabhi Aayine Pe follows and KK takes over the mike for this one. This Rashid Khan composed track starts off reasonably well but sags midway which leads to the listener losing interest in it after a point. KK does his best to infuse energy into the number without much success. Though it is not exactly a bad composition, the tune just fails to register. The remix is not much different from the original except for a faster pace and extra beats which ironically enough, turns out to be a good decision since the original lacked those very same things.

Meet Bros Anjjan come up with the next song of the album weirdly titled as Pink Lips! Supposedly a dance track featuring Sunny Leone, this one is horrendous to say the least! Kumaar’s lyrics are ludicrous and so is the composition. The composers join Khusboo Grewal in delivering this ridiculous track which is sure to find its share of followers among the listeners but it is something that will never be part of my personal playlist for sure! As if this was not enough, we have a remix for this track too which is not really much different from the original except that it has been made more club-worthy.
