Satyameva Jayate 2 is a sloppy and shoddy portrayal of jingoism and vigilantism at its most heinous. In the name of a vigilante action thriller and to capitalise on the nostalgia for masala films from the ’80s, writer-director Milap Zaveri delivers a stale script that doesn’t even attempt to add anything new or unique. ​Showcasing the fight against injustice and misuse of power, Satyameva jayate 2 serves up a montage of done-to-death scenes that give the film’s lead heroes — John Abraham and John Abraham — a chance to fulfil their pledge to root out corruption. The plot revolves around Dadasaheb Balram Azad (Abraham) and his two sons, who are also played by Abraham — one of whom grows up to be a Home Minister (Satya) who wants his anti-corruption bill passed, and the other who plays a sassy cop (ACP Jay). The film also stars Divya Khosla Kumar as Satya's wife and Gautami Kapoor as twins' mother. The only redeeming feature of this film could have been Abraham, but he has little to work with other than adhering to the boundaries set by the clumsy screenplay and redundant, overdramatic dialogues. And I just didn’t understand why every character had to coin rhymes to make a point. It is frequently so poetic that the essence of the scene is lost.
