Rani Mukerji is back as Shivani Shivaji Roy in the sequel to her 2014 release Mardaani and the trailer of Mardaani 2 was unveiled today.
The actress, who is playing a cop, is after a sexual predator in the second installment. The film is set in Kota, a place in Rajasthan, where every year several students come to take engineering coaching. One such student gets brutally raped, tortured and murdered.
The crime is so heinous that it shakes the entire nation and now, Shivani has been entrusted to nab the culprit. However, the baddie challenges the police department as he goes on a rape and murder rampage and much to the police force’s frustration, informs them before committing a crime.
Shivani vows to catch him in two days, however, she is up against a young and smart criminal. How she manages to catch the villain forms the rest of the plot.
Like in the original, Rani is fabulous as the no-nonsense cop in the second edition as well. She brings a lot of intensity to the screen with her restrained acting. She carries the trailer on her able shoulders as the makers have still not revealed the identity of the antagonist.
The trailer is hard-hitting and the visuals will send a chill down your spine. The film is high on action and it’s a treat to watch Rani beating the goons into a pulp. The trailer is impressive and now, we have high hopes from the movie.
Directed by Gopi Puthran, Mardaani 2 has been bankrolled by Yash Raj Films and is slated to release on December 13.
