The Home Minister of India (Shefali Shah) assigns a four member special unit, comprising a dedicated police officer (Freddy Daruwala), ex-commando turned encounter specialist (Vidyut Jammwal), corrupt cop obsessed with brands (Adah Sharma) and a hacker to undertake a covert operation. The team must travel to Malaysia to bring in Vicky Chadda, a notorious black money launderer. Soon this challenging mission turns into a dangerous game of deceit.
Vidyut Jammwal is a solid action star and his stunts are the only reason you manage to sit through this never-ending tale of 'catch-Vicky Chadda-if-you-can'. The opening scene is spectacular. Sadly, the cat and mouse game between the cops and the criminal is not one bit exciting as the story pretends to be more intelligent than it is.
I had to rub my eyes to see Deven Bhojani’s name as director whilst watching the trailer. The talented actor and writer coming up with a film like Commando 2 seems quite vague.
An action movie needs to be slick and that’s where this one falls short. It’s not pacey and you’re not drawn into the story. Vidyut’s opening action sequence has been shot well, especially the one where he slides so easily into a window pane. Exactly opposite is Adah’s entry, she looks foolish running behind her target, only to shoot him from a one hand distance. Apparently, she’s the encounter specialist.
There are no songs luckily but the background score is jarring, especially since we keep hearing Commando everytime he is on the move.
Majority of the film revolves around investigation and I missed watching some hardcore action here. They could have taken inspiration from Baaghi which had completely paced up in the second half with action.
