Making sequels to hit movies is becoming a trend. And the latest one to join this trend is Nana Patekar’s 2004 hit film ‘Ab Tak Chappan’. The makers finally released the trailer of the much-postponed ‘Ab Tak Chappan 2’ as the movie gears up for a release this 27th February.
The trailer shows Nana Patekar reprising his role as the fearless encounter specialist Sadhu Agashe to fight against a possible terrorist attack. It is great to see him back in form playing the intelligent cop who delivers smart dialogues and loves playing with the trigger of his gun. He is given the entire footage in the 2 minute 15 seconds trailer leaving us with just glimpses of Gul Panag and Ashutosh Rana.
While the first one was directed by Shimit Amin, its sequel has been directed by Aejaz Gulab; and going by the trailer, it seems as if his knowledge about scenes and camera angles is very much similar to that Ram Gopal Verma. It would be interesting to see if under his direction, this movie becomes a special one again or just ends up being another cop-drama about the ‘Cop Vs Evil Men’ theme which many movies like ‘Singham’, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Zanjeer’ have adopted.
So let us wait till 27th February to find out whether ‘Ab Tak Chappan 2’, which is filled with packed punches and gun-shots, makes it to the top or YRF’s love-story ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ which releases on the same day wins the race.
