“Kick 2 manages to entertain but doesn't live upto the magic of the original.”
Kick 2 revolves around Robinhood, the defective son of Kick's hero. Name is weird isn't it? Movie gets weirder. After all who names his son Robinhood? Anyway, Robin believes in 'comfort', his own at all points. He becomes a doctor so he can take care of himself at all points, so much so, after getting hit by a Sumo, he applies medicines himself, stitches the wounds himself and goes and beats the crap out of the goon who was driving the vehicle.
Robinhood is a narcissist and Chaitra (Rakulpreet Singh) falls for him. In the veil of his narcissism there are a few sexist scenes in the movie which get thrown back at the cheering audience eventually when Robinhood compares Chaitra to a prostitute for being nice to him out of her own need (isn't that what guys do in real life running out of their own need and complaining about how girls have been using them?) Chaitra is on a mission to bring Robinhood to her village Vilaspur, an unreal settlement in the middle of nowhere given the director had to use a severely fragile and temporary station with a CG train. Vilaspur and many other villages have been under the control of Solomon Singh Thakur (Ravi Kishan). It is a very strange setup. Solomon keeps shouting he is the Son of God for no apparent reason. He shoots one of a pair of white pigeons and until the end the other pigeon keeps flapping around in every scene looking for revenge maybe? Or probably the pigeon was trying to scream to the director how bad the whole narrative of the movie is. There is an episode where Solomon's son tries to prove himself by getting angry and raping a girl. That unnecessary scene is followed by another where in a South Indian temple (probably ruins of Hampi), in the middle of Vilaspur, strangely, the hero beats that son to protect himself. Later he fixes all the body parts of that son (Kabir) in a jiffy, somethingn even the best of doctors won't be able to manage. Interestingly, that turns the villain against our hero, something our villagers were trying to plot all around. Confusing right? Villagers plot and go to all troubles to turn a village girl into a posh writer who spends wads of notes to impress Robin and make him fall in love and then create a beautiful lakeside resort for him in the village and starve themselves to feed him everything while he is unaware of the troubles and what they want actually happens because of a misunderstanding. Logic is an alien anyway but common sense was found wailing on an empty land somewhere too after knowing that what started the rivalry between the villain and the hero, the son's getting beaten up reaches another level when Solomon shoots his own son. What you smokin' bro?
Surender Reddy believes in a terrible villain and a hero who can smash everyone to pieces. But, how many times will we have to see that before he understands that this is getting irrationally funny in a bad way. After all, why do you want a villain who lives in Delhi but calls himself Takhur with a South Indian accent? Pandit Ravi Teja is a character played by Brahmanandam. It is cringeworthy to say the least. Lastly, the whole agenda of the movie was the character who loves his comfort. Why would he come all the way to India to fight with a real estate don to get his land back and then get embroiled in a fight and then eventually end the movie on a note of selflessness? The movie had some good actors including Rajpal Yadav, Ashish Vidyarthi and Pankaj Mishra - all of who have grossly been misused, like using linen shirts to wipe tables on a roadside dhaba.
