The biggest strength of Billa 2 is undoubtedly its hero. He does his part of looking good whenever he's allowed to, wields his gun in style and delivers the dialogs in his signature style. The film in general lacks pace and drama. The experimental style editing hampers the narrative than improve it. Though the film's not longer than a quarter and two hours Billa's story until his transition takes its own sweet time to unveil itself.
And yet you wish there was more to it than you saw, perhaps a bit more of drama. You comes out feeling his past somehow isn't as gruesome as to make him as dreaded a don as he later becomes, or his circumstances are not as cruel as to win our instant sympathy. Nor are his moves to eliminate his rivals as clever, calculating or cunning as we'd have liked them to be.
David Billa hardly has any fun in life except for that one dance instance. His intimacy with anyone, for that matter even his partner Ranjith played by Yog Jappee, who remains faithful to him throughout, is hardly ever explored.
