Movie: Bichagadu 2

Rating: 2.25/5

Cast: Vijay Antony, Kavya Thapar, Dev Gill, John Vijay, Radha Ravi

Director: Vijay Antony

Producer: Vijay Fathima Antony

Release Date: 19th May 2023

Story: Vijay Gurumurthy (Vijay Antony) is a rich man, who has a doppelgänger named Satya (Vijay Antony again), a poor beggar. To get control of Vijay and his wealth, his friends decide to have his brain transplanted with Satya’s brain. However, things do not go the way they want, as Satya has his own ideas and a serious goal. What are his intentions and what’s his objective is what forms the rest of the story.

Analysis: The film starts on an impressive and strong note as the narrative does not waste time to get into the main plot. The same momentum continues around the first 30 minutes. However, after that, the pace drops and the movie gets a bit deviated from its plot. Though the interval episode provides the high, it gives the feel of an ending. The second half starts again on a fresh note like another film, and though Vijay Antony tries to tell an honest message, the effect goes missing as the drama did not work whatsoever and it ends with an overdramatic climax.

Performances: Vijay Antony was good in his two roles and gave an honest performance. Kavya Thapar was fine, while Dev Gill, John Vijay, Radha Ravi and others were alright.

Plus Points:

  • First half an hour
  • Few emotional scenes
  • Background Score

Minus Points:

  • Convoluted Narration in the second half
  • Unnecessary elevation scenes
  • Weakening of the Central Message

Verdict: Bichagadu 2 had a good premise. While it manages to start effectively, the narrative derails as the film progresses, making it substandard than the first part. On the whole, the film does not give a satisfactory experience.
