Finally a glimpse into what magic filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has created with his youngest and brightest born Alia Bhatt in Sadak 2. The trailer comes to us hours after the shocking revelation that Sanjay Dutt is seriously ill and heading to the United States for medical treatment. To see him on the big screen as an aging lover, who is mourning the death of his beloved played by Pooja Bhatt, is disturbing.
Alia is on a mission to take on fake godmen in this road movie where she hires the cabbie Sanjay to take her to the Himalayan peaks. The trailer has some lovely moments between Alia and her unlikely mentor Sanjay. In one funny instance, he puts up a notice in his taxi saying ‘No Smoking’ and ‘No Kissing’ when he sees Alia doing both with her on-screen boyfriend Aditya Roy Kapoor, who seems to have the weakest role among the pivotal cast.
Aditya plays the stereotypical role of the ‘supportive partner’ to his girlfriend who is on a mission. Two-third into the trailer and Sadak 2 suddenly turns into a breeding-ground for violence. Makarand Deshpande
