Murder 2,the latest installment from Mohit Suri has nothing in connection with the original Murder,but has its own dose of entertainment in store for the audience.It has been inspired by the Korean slasher film The Chaser.The film is strictly not recommended for the children and the light-hearted and may be disturbing for them.Good performances,excellent music and protruding darkness make it an entertaining fare for the people who love erotic thrillers.The main highlight of the movie is a stellar performance by Prashanth Narayan.It is certainly one among the best crime thrillers to be made in Bollywood.Box office reports of the movie is excellent and has a steady collection for the first week.
Prashanth Narayan steals the limelight with his psycho-killer mannerisms.Emran Hashmi does his job quiet well. Jaquiline Fernandez has nothing much to play than to show some flesh and hot scenes.Sulagna Panigrahi is a talent to lookout for future and does a commendable job.
Some +ves::Excellent music,Good performance by Prashanth Narayan and Sulagna Panigrahi,Cinematography by Ravi Walia,Fast paced first half and Shagufta Rafique's dark screenplay. Some -ves::Absence of any connection with Murder 1,Some heavily disturbing scenes,Little bit slow second half and Not so appreciable editing work.
Music by Harshit Saxena,Mithoon,Sangeet Haldipur,Siddharth Haldipur is really melodious,touching and mind soothing.The album is one of the best musicals of 2011 and can be rated a 8.5/10.
Verdict::Murder 2 is an entertaining crime thriller with some good performances and music,which has nothing in connection with its prequel.Go 4 a darker,sleazier entertainer.Not recommended for the light-hearted.Ma Rating::7.5/10
