Not surprisingly, Mohit Suri makes yet another rip-off (the Korean movie 'Chaser') and, of course, with the added recycled Bhatt material (eunuch 'rapist' villain -as evident in 'Sadak' and 'Sangharsh'), clumsy sex scenes and the Bollywood ingredients (song and 'dance', including the required item number). It may not be among the most expensive films but it's quite apparent that a lot of money has been spent. However, 'Murder 2' still looks and feels like a B-movie. Camera-work is overdone. Editing is shoddy. Too many subplots that aren't fleshed out, lots of plot holes. The use of light is effective especially in the nocturnal sequences. Most of the performances are average at best. Emraan Hashmi does go overboard in several scenes. Jacqueline Fernandez seems to only have been required for her body. Sulagna Panigrahi does a confident job and... if there is one reason to watch 'Murder 2' at all then that's Prashant Narayanan who easily steals the show as the ruthless vicious sociopathic serial killer. One good that came from the box office success of this forgettable, rather lacklustre thriller is the appreciation of this actor, most of whose memorable works received little recognition.
