Mardaani 2 Critic Reviews & Ratings

It’s the conviction in the performances and a gripping narrative that ensure there’s never a dull moment in Mardaani 2.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-3/5
Mardaani 2 benefits from the strong performances of both Rani Mukerji and her young co-star Vishal Jethwa. It’s brisk, slickly shot, and plays to the gallery.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
Mardaani 2 is a taut, fast-paced cop-on-a-mission thriller that eschews Bollywood frills and delivers a grim, gritty, grinding account.

Mukerji delivers it straight and true, and even if it is a dialogue singularly crafted for her, you want to applaud.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2.5/5
While the briskness lends some urgency to what turns out to be routine serial killer fare, it barely allows for character sketching.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
The film engages with the gender issue in the all too familiar and stereotypical way, barely rising above being a cat-and-mouse thriller.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-2.5/5
Between spoon feeding motives and relying on too many contrivances to provide the antagonist an easy escape, Mardaani 2 loses on nuance.

The film needed a more layered script – it has plot twists that stretch believability and the brutality becomes hard to watch.

Writer-director Gopi Puthran allows this story to organically assume form and narrative, without over explaining the proceedings.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-2.5/5
Mardaani 2 ends up in a 'maar-dhaad' climax that may appeal to the front-benchers in single-screen cinema, but does not work within the set up of the film’s own first half.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-3/5
The film may seem contrived with pop-feminism, there’s enough suspense to keep us engaged.

MARDAANI 2 is a gripping thriller that boasts of an exciting script and bravura performances by Rani Mukerji and Vishal Jethwa.

Overall Average Rating - 2.9/5
