As part of a successful franchisee, Jannat 2 is one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the month – especially at mass centers where Emraan Hashmi commands a huge fan-following.

Jannat 2 Review
Jannat 2 is a typical Bhatt film – it has a bit of everything; great music, romance, good performances, light-hearted moments and love-making scenes. The film starts off very well, the scenes between Pratap and Sonu are a treat to watch – well directed and performed. Infact, it’s the chemistry between Randeep and Emraan that makes Jannat 2 a good one-time watch. The dialogues are witty and go well with the characters.
The twist just before the interval might catch a few by surprise (those that didn’t notice the visiting card of Jhanvi). Unfortunately, it’s the second half where Jannat 2 disappoints big time. The film tends to get very predictable and slow. The climax was abrupt, but very different and something that you wouldn’t be expecting.
The music like every other Bhatt film is melodious. Tu Hi Mera and Rab Ka Shukrana are our favorites. Raju Singh has done a terrific job with the background music. The action sequences too are well choreographed (Javed – Eijaz).
Jannat 2 belongs to Emraan Hashmi, who is one of the most dependable actors in the industry. He performs with effortless ease in Jannat 2. Randeep Hooda’s character is similar to Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, but here he has a lot more to do. He’s outstanding. Esha Gupta has little to do, apart from smile, kiss and romance Emraan Hashmi. The rest are okay.
Overall, Jannat 2 is entertaining in parts. The film is targeted mainly at the masses, and should do very well in the B and C centres.
