    Verdict - The deranged ghost of Ram Gopal Varma looms large over Ab Tak 56 2

    I haven't seen the first Ab Tak 56 movie which was helmed by Shimit Amin (who'd later go on to make Chak De India and Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year) but I know that it was produced by the RGV factory, who also gave the industry such fine talent like Sriram Raghavan and Anurag Kashyap, when the maverick director hadn't lost it completely.
    Although Varma isn't directly associated with the sequel in any capacity, his ghost looms large over the stylistic form of the film - except that it's Varma of recent times, the loony filmmaker who likes to place the camera in the most absurd of places and use background music not to underscore the action but to fake sense of urgency which in actuality is so loud and inane that it's bound to cause headache.
    The premise concerns encounter specialist tough cop Sadhu Agashe (Nana Patekar), who has retired to a quiet life in a village in Goa after the death of his wife, which he holds himself responsible for. He has a son Aman (whose scenes with his father are cringe-inducingly tacky) and Sadhu wishes to focus on his well-being, never wanting to return to the police force.
    As has been the case the RGV films of recent years, the narrative meanders randomly, with characters and scenes existing without any rhyme or reason. What we're left with, instead, is a mangled mess of horribly shot action scenes, eardrum-splittingly loud background music, grossly over the top acting and punchline-laden dialogue that's so lame that you feel bad for the film's able lead Patekar for having to deliver them with utmost sincerity.
    The film leads up to a hackneyed twist you see coming from a mile apart but there's little in the film to make you care. Ab Tak Chhappan 2 is a terribly directed, annoyingly loud slumber to nowhere.
