Vidyut Jamwal’s ‘Khuda Hafeez’ received appreciation when it was released on OTT. With that in mind, its sequel ‘Khuda Hafiz Chapter 2: The Ordeal’ has been released in theaters but has not been paid with acclaim. The film has collected Rs.6 crores in the weekend. R. on Friday for Vidyut’s film. Madhavan’s ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ shows were cut short. Despite its eighth day, ‘Khuda Hafeez 2’ collected Rs 1.38 crore against the previous day’s Rs 1 crore. 3.5 crore has been received in the second weekend.
Vidyut’s Rs 40 crore film, which was released on 2300 screens, was hit over the script due to the negative response, which led to the opinion that it too needed to be released on OTT. Instead of Vidyut’s action film, the audience preferred to watch Hollywood’s ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, earning Rs. 64 crores in 4 days. Vidyut’s film didn’t do well at the box office but he passed the acting test. The film is said to be the best performance of his career so far.
He is considered eligible for big banner films. In the first part of the film, Vidyut does not have any action avatar, but he wins the hearts of the audience with his performance. He makes the audience happy with his action scenes in the first part and after the interval. Vidyut fainted during the shooting of a scene which is really awesome. He has been able to show the emotions of a father easily. Out of the 2 to 3 stars given to the film by the reviewers, one star is due to the performances of Vidyut and the other actors. The film has a rating of 8.9 out of 10 on IMDB. Like other action heroes, Vidyut does not resort to animation or VFX.
Action scenes that look realistic. Which shocks the audience. It has to be acknowledged again that the answer is not in its action. Along with action, emotion has also been given importance in the film. A scene where a little girl goes to light an incense stick in front of a picture of her dead parents and the match doesn’t light is heart touching even though there is no dialogue. A film strong in action is weak in story. The story this time is typical in its main negative aspect. The story repeats itself and moves very slowly. The story was revealed in the trailer. The earlier film had the story of Nargis being kidnapped and then raped.
In the sequel, a similar incident happens with their baby girl. It cannot be believed that the same incident happens in the same family. Earlier the film was based on a true story. The sequel has a fictional story. And there is nothing new in it that the audience has not seen before in any film. The climax is heightened by being filmed in Egypt. Not all weaknesses can hide behind Vidyut’s performance. Actors who can be called good have been given ordinary roles. Shivalika Oberoi does justice to her role as ‘Nargis’. He is more emotionally affecting but has many swings in his role.
In many scenes, the behavior of his character remains incomprehensible. This will be more understood in the scenes before the interval. The step that Nargis takes seems logically quite wrong. That’s why the dialogue he speaks is not understandable. Director Farooq Kabir could not quite convey what he wanted to prove. The scene where the interval falls is the weakest. Riddhi Sharma impresses in the role of Shivalika’s girl. Shiba Chadha leaves an impact as Thakurji. Out of three musicians, not one could give a good song. Amar Mohile’s background music is necessarily energetic. The length of the long-titled two-and-a-half-hour film, made by 8 producers together, also needed to be cut down by 20 minutes. There is also unlikely to be a pick-up if the length is not reduced when presenting on OTT.
