Critics Review

The movie has received mixed, however, great reviews all over the world and has managed to receive 7.1/10 rating on IMDb. The first half of the movie is excellently directed, and Vidya has done great work. The story of the second half is quite predictable, and at some point, the story gets slightly clumsy. The first half of the movie is highly praised because of the roles played by both Vidya and Arjun.

Here’s what Times of India had to say about this Bollywood film: “This sequel directed by Sujoy Ghosh after a gap of four years is a whodunit that definitely serves up intrigue, but fails to keep a tight grip on proceedings throughout its duration. So unlike the first part, that hit the ground running and set a benchmark in the genre, this one lacks the shark-bite.” [1]
