Movie Verdict

The suspenseful plot of HIT-The First Case enthralled many viewers, but the movie’s climax disappointed them. HIT 2 begins slowly as it develops the universe of KD and the story. The first-half pace dips but it has some blocks that make you invested in the first half, and the interval bang worked out quite well as it makes you curious to watch the second half. However, when KD takes on the case of “Sanjana’s murder,” the pace dips and rises intermittently as the protagonist searches for a clue but then pulls you into the world of HIT 2 and makes you a part of it.

The dramatic mood keeps you hooked to your seat until the finale, which is handled rather nicely despite the film’s lack of emotional depth. The film’s languid narration is a concern because thrillers call for spicy screenplays. Except for a few blocks, the entire movie is interesting, so if the pace quickens in the second half, you won’t mind waiting.

While Adivi Sesh does a good job portraying KD, the role doesn’t present much of a challenge for him to play, and Meenakshi doesn’t get much of a chance to show off her acting skills (despite having good screen presence), which is a significant flaw in the movie. Rao Ramesh, Tanikella Bharani, Posani Krishna Murali, Komalee Prasad, Srinath Maganti, and Srikanth Iyengar all gave their all in the role of the cast members.

Sailesh Kolanu, who dazzled as a debut director with HIT-The first case, though the story is not original, but he gave the movie a distinctive touch with new scenes, and now with HIT 2, where he didn’t try to reinvent himself with a new story but he engaged us with the narrative and the new scenes as it clearly shows how much he researched, but he succeeded in holding the audience’s attention despite the slow narration.

HIT 2’s technical execution should have been better even if S.Manikandan once again dazzles with his visuals—his framing, blocking, and lighting draw you into the movie and take you on a journey with the plot. Stewart Eduri did an excellent job of giving several sequences the right amount of tension; nonetheless, Sree Lekha and Suresh Bobbili’s songs fall short of expectations.

In general, HIT 2 is a solid thriller that fans of the genre should watch.
