It happens that each instalment in a movie franchise might have a different treatment. But with Kamal Haasan almost completing the shoot of both the instalments, Vishwaroopam 2 no more looks like a second part, but an extended version of first one that was released before 5 years. Yes, there are few unanswered questions in the first part, which includes tragic end of Omar’s family, which is carried as an anguished vengeance to retaliate. Fine! Revealing more would be a spoilsport for it forms the climax portion. The significance of such sequence is that it proves evidently that Kamal Haasan would have been an editor himself while foreseeing the visuals through his imagination while penning the screenplay.

The transitions that we see during the first half is quite commendable and dialogue are phenomenally brilliant for an ordinary audience to grasp. Maybe, they will have to come again for the second time and view it. It’s almost like a hardcore Tamilian who is handed a Bourne based espionage thriller novel. Well, it’s been an intriguing part of Kamal Haasan movies irrespective of genres. Kamal Haasan has clearly understood that the film’s complexity of intense thrill moments has to be slightly pampered with humour and he makes it through his conversations with Ananth Shankar alongside Andrea Jeremiah in hotel room. The continuity that is implemented through edits and transitions are well done. In fact , there is one thing that we tend to notice throughout the film.

When it comes to performance and in comparison with the first part, it’s Andrea Jeremiah who gets more scope to perform than Pooja Kumar and other supporting actors. The first half proceeds with intense moments, though it might be felt little stretched. But second half swifts in a span of just 45 minutes. In fact, the entire second half is almost like a climax. The action sequences are outstanding and we need to appreciate the energetic approach of Kamal Haasan. He nails it down stunningly in many places, especially the climax act.

Although, it is evident that most of the portions had been shot along with the first part, but with the brilliant background scoring of Ghibran, it turns to be immensely fresh.

The film might look stretched a bit by the first hour and if the climax act was as powerful as the interval block sequence, Vishwaroopam 2 would have been much more impactful.
