Jannat 2 Movie Review

Jannat 2 (Hindi)

Release Date:
May 04, 2012

Jannat 2 is a tumultuous rollercoaster journey of a hard-bitten cop and his hustling informer set against the explosive murky backdrop of the arms trade in North India.

One ordinary man, Sonu's (Emraan Hashmi) quest for his personal heaven creates hell for all around him until with the help of a cop Pratap (Randeep Hooda), he breaks away from it all and does something extraordinary to make things better for the greater good of the community.

Sonu is a smooth talking street-smart gun runner, who has the gift of the gab and knows his trade inside out.

ACP Pratap is a hardened maverick cop, who has a personal vendetta against the gun nexus. He will go to any lengths to crack down this nexus and he handpicks Sonu to do this job, as he is the perfect candidate to enter this racket undercover and make his way to the top and expose everybody involved in the illegal gun trade. Sonu falls in love with a beautiful young doctor Jhanvi, along his journey and that throws his life's course into a tailspin with unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for all 3 of them.

I went in with low expectations and the film surpassed them at every level – and this isn’t faint praise

The Hindu

Jannat 2 isn't all bad; in fact there are portions that are eminently watchable

It is a macho, chauvinistic world. The movie itself, though, acts rough and raw but isn’t gritty enough

Jannat 2 is, for the most part, a badly-done, badly-acted enterprise, lifted only a notch by a couple of performances

Indian Express

Randeep Hooda shines in this Bhatt template film

The Hindu

The two male leads salvage a predictable plot

A lot would have been forgiven - as it often is with these producers - if the film had either a meatier plot or a more gripping narrative, but this one's just tiresome as the obvious story drags on


If you must watch Jannat 2, watch it for Hooda alone.

Mumbai Mirror

Overlook a few of its sinful indulgences and Jannat 2 can turn out to be a hell of a ride!

Times of India

Emraan Hashmi is back again in a vehicle tailormade for his unique ability to look fear in the eye.

India Today

There’s nothing wrong with the plot as such, except that it’s thoroughly predictable and therefore thoroughly boring


Jannat 2 isn't half as enticing as its first part. Watch it for Randeep Hooda or if you are a big fan Emraan Hashmi


Jannat 2 is a decent crime caper, but doesn't shoot you between the eyes

Times of India

An absorbing story, a swift and coherent narrative, exemplary direction, fantastic action, soothing music and stellar performances
