The novelty of Vishwaroopam 2 is in its grounded approach to narrating a tale of extremism. Instead of buying into the popular hypothesis that 'Islam leads to terrorism,' the movie makes a case for rational thinking.
Even Kamal Haasan can’t rise above the shockingly inept script, which he rescues only in a few places, when his trademark intelligent, wry self-awareness manages to kick in. The rest can be safely ignored.
While the death of Tamil Nadu's former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Tuesday might lead to a weak opening of Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam 2 in the southern states, trade analysts have predicted a decent box office collection of the movie in North India.
Vishwaroopam 2 is a sequel to the 2010 film Vishwaroopam. Written, directed and co-produced by Kamal Haasan, the film also stars Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Waheeda Rehman, Shekhar Kapur and Rahul Bose.
