Billa 2 Movie Review

Cast: Ajith, Bruna Abdullah, Sudhanshu Pandey, Vidyut Jamwal, Ilavarasu and Parvathy Omanakuttan

Screenplay and direction: Chakri Toleti

A prequel to Billa the remake of Rajinikanth's original classic, Billa 2 is the story of a Sri Lankan refugee, David Billa (Ajith), who has lost his parents and arrives at Rameshwaram as a refugee. He then decides to revolt against the authorities for ill-treating his fellow refugees in the refugee camp.

David makes use of the opportunities which come his way and wins the trust of a powerful don and becomes his assistant. He then goes on to become the crime king.

One day David comes in contact with mafia druglord Abbasi (Sudhanshu Pandey) and starts working for him. Soon, Abbasi gets insecure with Billa's growth and things which were going in favour of David Billa, suddenly take a u-turn as he faces problem with Dimitri (Vidyut Jamal), an arms dealer.

David and Abbasi part ways and David moves further to build his own empire.

Ajith has performed action scenes with ease and has given an impressive performance. Sudhanshu Pandey,too, is perfect in the role of Abbasi.

Cinematograpy by RD Rajasekhar is extraordinary, but the editing of the film is average.

Screenplay and narration also fails to impress.

Billa 2 can be watched for its action sequences, decent music and interesting locations.
