Movie Review: 'Hate Story 2' is a film you’d hate to like

'Hate Story 2' is a violent revenge saga

The ApunKaChoice movie review of 'Hate Story 2'. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and Bollywood hath no dearth of storywriters cashing in on the theme. After the revenge saga of Hate Story where Paoli Dam unleashed terror on her tormenters, the second part (not a sequel) has Surveen Chawla as the woman who returns from the dead to exact revenge from the man who tortured her sexually and mentally.

Hate Story 2 has Surveen Chawla playing Sonika, the mistress of the aggressive, violent politician Mandar (Sushant Singh). For him, Sonika is a sexual toy to be used in bed any which way he wants. Trouble starts when Sonika falls in love with Akshay (Jay Bhanushali), whom she meets in photography class.

Akshay prods Sonika to dare to dream of a better life, to dare to love. But their love story is cut short when Mandar gets the whiff of it. He does the unimaginable to Sonika and leaves her for the dead. But she comes back to take revenge.

Credit to director Vishal Pandya for telling the story unconventionally, but how one wishes the writer had put in more meat than flesh into the story. Though one understands Sonika’s visceral hatred for Mandar, it’s hard to believe how a woman singlehandedly goes about bringing the politico to his knees.

There’s skin-show aplenty and there’s a lot of violence that will, as intended by the director, put you off. The shots of Sushant Singh making out with Surveen, and she lying in bed like a piece of flesh, like a dead body being exploited isn’t titillating in the least. What may turn you on is rather the passion-play between Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali.

Surveen is the mainstay of Hate Story 2. Hers is a difficult role involving sexual and physical violence. She emotes well in the mushy scenes and breathes fire into the climax when she exacts revenge. Sushant Singh nails his character of a man who treats women like doormats. Jay Bhanushali comes up with an easy-breezy act. Sunny Leone adds her brand of oomph in the song 'Pink Lips' (watch it here).

Hate Story 2 isn’t a fun watch. It’s not a popcorn flick you watch for its skin show. To see a woman being raped, battered, bruised and buried alive is no entertainment. It’s hell invoked. That’s why Hate Story 2 is a film you’d hate to like.

Rating: **1/2
