“Itihaas gawah hai, itihaas tab banta hai jab kuch naya hota hai.” – Satya (2013)
Ram Gopal Verma had made it clear that Satya 2 is not a sequel to Satya, and he has evidently made no attempt of making this film look like a prequel or a sequel too. Satya 2 stands as an independent story about yet another man who aims to redraw the image of the underworld in the present time.
Satya (Puneet Singh Ratn) comes to Mumbai with a mysterious persona to recreate the underworld with his ‘intellect’. He believes in conquering the city by not repeating the same mistakes that the old players made. He is calm, but his thoughts are reflected in his eyes as he confidently plans his moves and executes them without the slightest hesitation. With his master plot, his ‘soch’ and his careful steps, Satya surely creates a lasting impression.
The film definitely has some spark in it, »

This week's major release is Ram Gopal Varma's Satya 2. It was expected that brand Satya would ensure at least a decent start for Satya 2. Unfortunately the film barely managed a 5-10 per cent start at an all India level. While certain quarters of the media feel that the film has been done in by Krrish 3 wave, but given the general buzz, Satya 2 would not have achieved anything substantial otherwise too. The box-office flight of Hrithik Roshan's Krrish 3 kept soaring higher an »

Mumbai, Oct 12: Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma says "Satya" in the title of his next film "Satya 2" should only be interpreted as a pseudonym. He doesn't want the audience to consider the forthcoming movie as a sequel to his 1998 crime thriller.
He says "Satya 2" is all about the 'truth' about two characters' journey.
"Aman (a character) gets off a train in 'Satya' and what happened to him, that was about truth. The name is almost a surreal application of what his life is about," the 51-year-old said here in an interview Friday.
"This ('Satya 2') is in another time period, another man gets off a train in Mumbai. So the similarity is about the truth. The name is a pseudonym rather, not to be taken literally," he added.

Manoj Bajpai is known for his strong characters portrayed on-screen. The actor who has won many accolades for his roles in movies like Shool, Satya, Zubeidaa and Raajneeti amongst many others has been paired yet again opposite Big B in a negative role for his upcoming movie Satyagraha.
The National Film Award Winning actor prefers to do a villainous role while sharing the screen space with the mega star. He feels that no other character stands strong enough opposite Amitabh Bachchan and thus it is better to do a negative role.
“In an Amitabh Bachchan film, there’s no other role which is better than his. In such a situation it’s only the negative role which is as good as his, so it’s best to go for the negative. I must say in films like Aks, Aarakshan or even Satyagraha now, the roles were written very carefully,” said Bajpai. »
