Murder 1 was inspired from "Unfaithful" and now this one, from "Chaser", It's awful to see Mahesh Bhatt replicating the English movies.
Now, talking about the movie, the makers have chosen a very smart way of banking the brand "Murder". The sequel is not at all the sequel. Nothing apart from the makers are same in this movie. But in order to create some hype and sensation, screenplay and story are hampered and unnecessary sex scenes are mixed in an uncanny way.
Emraan Hashmi and Prashant Narayan (I loved him in Yeh Saali Zindagi) were just splendid! Jacqueline is supposed to be the eye candy and she does it well. She adds more spice than Mallika Sherawat.
Music is a plus point of the movie. Aye Khuda is shot in a brilliant way (Mohit Suri did the same thing in Awarapan). Haal E Dil sounds good too. Background score by Raju Singh is okay.
The fault with the movie is in its screenplay. Due to the urge to mix up erotica with thriller, Shagufta Rafique messes with the flow of the movie. Dialogues are crisp. The actions and visuals were dark and intense, apt to the theme.
Overall, Mohit Suri had his heart and mind on the correct track while making the movie, but if the story and screenplay were better (or should I say logical); the movie would have worked wonders. A worth watch anyways!
