Suno and Janvi Gets married, Janvi did not have any idea about the real work her husband does, and she thinks he is in cloth business.
There are some predictable and unpredictable twists in the movie. The film succeeds to grab your attention is in handling of its crime-drama. The camera drags you through alleys, dargas and even offers a small dose of desi parkour on the rooftops of Dehli. writer Shagufta Rafique deserve brownie points for the movie's visual technique and taut writing.
As far as acting is concern the best man is Randeep Hooda, who brilliantly played his character. His talent is evident from his outstanding performance. Emran Hashmi in the character of street arm seller also gives a best performance like he always does. He appears convincing and a constant source of delight with his eclectic mix of one liners and dramatic dialogues. New comer Esha Gupta, the leading lady and a new comer gave an average performance, the best she did in the movie is that she looked stunning with a smile most of the time on her face.
Music is again given by Pritam Chakraborty. Like most of Emraan’s movies, music of jannat 2 is also fascinating. "Tu Hi Mera" by Pakistani singer Shafkat Amanat Ali is a romantic song which fits into the situation in the movie. "Tera Deedar Hua" is a Sufi Qawaali with extra punches of Bhangra. "Tujhe Sochta Hoon" in the beautiful voice of KK has haunting sinister feel comes in the synchronized piano.
Jannat 2 is a good one time watch, especially for Emraan's fans.
