Vishwaroopam 2 movie review: The Kamal Haasan and Andrea Jeremiah film

Vishwaroopam 2 movie cast:

Kamal Haasan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekhar Kapur, Rahul Bose, Anant Mahadevan, Waheeda Rehman, Jaideep Ahlawat. 

Vishwaroopam 2 movie director: Kamal Haasan 

Vishwaroopam 2 movie rating: One and a half stars 

 The derring-do doings of RAW agent Major Wisam Ahmad Kashmiri aka Vis were mostly entertaining in a comic-book way in Vishwaroopam part one.


Part 2, sadly, is an incoherent mess.  It opens with a battered, stitched-up Vis (Kamal) being transported in an airplane with two familiar lovelies Nirupama (Kumar) and Ashmita (Jeremiah) on either side. The former is his wife; the latter is a clear case of wishful thinking, always coming on heavily flirtatious, making you wonder just what this threesome is up to.  The plot is choppy, carelessly hopping continents (India, US, Afghanistan) and time zones. When the characters—spooks and traitors, forgetful mothers and sentimental sons, and pretty women making up to the great spymaster— are not killing each other, either via hand-to-hand combat, knives and guns, they are busy flitting about in all manner of transport, and deploying weapons. Helicopters are whirring away, missiles are being launched, grenades are being flung, and Vis, armed and dangerous, is on top of everything, saving India’s capital from being bombed out of existence.
