Well, its totally no connection prequel wasn’t a great film either, but frankly it had its moments, while this film has nothing going for itself except a couple of performances & music! The plot is predictable from the word go, & serious standing ovation to the writers!! They made sure the actors mouth unintentionally the funniest lines in the intense sequences. The direction is fine, but with the such predictable plot, the over toned violence could have been easily cut down. The only saving graces of this film is the soothing music & the exceptional performances from Sushant Singh & Surveen Chawla. Jay Bhanushali is likable but has a very minor role, no idea why he signed up for this as his big screen debut. Overall Hate Story 2 is a shaky mess of a film riding heavily on its exceptional performances & popular music.
