Hate Story 2

For some films just watching the trailer is enough, there’s nothing more to them. This is one of them.

Starring: Surveen Chawla, Jay Bhanushali, Sushant Singh
Directed by Vishal Pandya
Rating: *

For some films just watching the trailer is enough, there’s nothing more to them. So you are better off catching the Hate Story 2 promo that offers the bikini bods, kisses and sex in a more concentrated, and perhaps more effective, way than the film itself. Yet another film in the ‘bold, adult, erotic thriller’ genre, which is slowly moving from the margins to get mainstreamised in our multiplexes, Hate Story 2 also uses a Sunny Leone item song, Pink Lips, to emphasise on its B/C grade appeal. The remixed version of the song Aaj phir tum pe pyaar aaya hai plays on the original Dayavaan number which was much criticised for the way the camera ‘exploited’ Madhuri Dixit. Despite all this, Hate Story 2 does not manage to tease and titillate the viewer enough. The predictable tale of the avenging angel woman is peppered with some showy dialoguebaazi, lines like: ‘qaidi ki aazaadi ki aarzoo aur randi ki shaadi ki aarzoo kabhi na kabhi sar uthayenge’ or ‘jisne pyaar kiya ho wahi nafrat kar sakta hai’. TV actors Jay and Surveen play the love lead mechanically, but it’s painful to see a fine actor like Sushant Singh trying hard to salvage his character and the film. Needless to say, he deserves better.

More than a decade after India first started the procurement process, it has finally inked an €8bn agreement to buy 36 Rafale fighter jets from France’s Dassault. The original deal was to buy 126 Rafales to replace the accident-prone Russian MiG-21s. Ultimately, the government offered to buy only 36 ready-to-fly planes.
