I have a very vivid memory of watching Satya. My then girlfriend broke up with me the night before Satya released but since we had booked the tickets for the film I persuaded her to come for it. Such was the impact of that film that after coming out of the theatre I didn’t care about the breakup. The only thing that occupied my mind was Satya. RGV,Manoj Bajpai and Sandeep Chowta were my hero.
This film is more of a sequel to Company than Satya. At least I would like to believe so because comparing this to Satya is pure blasphemy. A man comes to Mumbai with a clear intention to rule the city. His name is Satya (Puneet Singh Ratn) but before coming to Mumbai he romances his girlfriend in a village . Step by step one killing after another Satya sets up a nameless company with the help of an overacting Mahesh Thakur while the police is in a desperate attempt to find the face behind the company.
To be fair the story had the potential to become an engaging thrilling crime drama but rgv’s direction is so lethargic that even the dramatic developments can manage to put you to sleep. Half of the time he is obsessed with his new toy the eagle view cam. The operator even gets credit in the opening. With not a single character actor to support the long drawn scenes satya 2 becomes a tiring watch. Puneet Singh Ratn looks like a spoof of Satya’s character. He neither has the charisma nor the talent to hold the film on its own. Filled with high speed scenes or talking heads in the room this Satya thoo is as forgettable as a bad nightmare.
Word of mouth - The truth is out there rgv might never make a comeback. Yehi Satya hai.
