Terrorist Omar Qureshi (Rahul Bose) plans a massive attack on New York city and it Was disrupted by RAW Agent Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri (Kamal Haasan).
Jihadis Omar and Saleem escape from New York and Wisam is given the responsibility to eliminate Omar and his men. Omar and Saleem hurry to execute their international plot to defame three democracies in one day.
Wisam thwarts an ingenious plot by Omar to wreak havoc on the Independence Day of India. While Wisam lives to celebrate his independence. Omar and Saleem do not.
Wisam mourns his brothers but Nation comes first to a soldier. The film is all about how he goes about achieving his mission, with the help of his team.
Vishwaroopam 2 is both a prequel and sequel to Vishwaroopam. A spy thriller, it takes us through a complex and non-linear route, narrating the story of Wisam and what happened before and after the first part.
Kamal Haasan is stunning and enough has been written about his acting skills. He wows us as director and writer too in this flick and he doesn’t appear like a man in his 60s.
Andrea Jeremiah and Pooja Kumar, the two leading ladies, impress us in their own ways, while scenes featuring Shekhar Kapur and Anant Mahadevan don’t really make the cut.
Enough importance has been given to stunt sequences and we feel like watching a Hollywood film made on a high budget. But there are several flashbacks that confuse us and dialogues too are heavy in this visual medium.
Music by Ghibran, cinematography and stunt scenes are highlights of Vishwaroopam 2. Despite being loud and keeping the audience guessing, this flick is loaded with good amount of action, comedy, romance, drama and patriotism.
Rating: 2.5 out of 5
