The brand ‘Sandakozhi’ never missed to keep our exhilarations down the graph. It’s almost 13 years and still we have a great engrossment every time we watch the movie. Now, the same celebrated duo combo of Vishal and Lingusamy come together for ‘Sandakozhi 2’, which has the same star-cast with some additional inclusions. Keerthy Suresh is playing the female lead with Varalaxmi Sarathkumar seen in negative role. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music with Sakthi handling cinematography.
Sandakozhi 2 is set against the premise seven years after the first part with Balu (Vishal) returning from abroad to his home town in Madurai. His father (Raj Kiran) has vowed to conduct the village festival, which has been stalled for 7 years due to a feud that broke out between two groups leaving Pechi (Varalaxmi Sarathkumar) widowed. She and her family are now waiting to bump off an innocent lad (Hari of Madras fame) in revenge in the same festival, where she lost her husband.
The scene where Raj Kiran finds out Vishal’s stealth fight using camera and interaction with Keerthy Suresh are really nice
The film has some moments, which are emotional and commercially satisfying too. Yes, Raj Kiran and Vishal look the same as in the first part. But if you’re keenly asking about who’s the best between the two, it’s obviously Raj Kiran, who has equal substantiality as Vishal. There are some best moments that revels the father-son sentiments. The scene where Raj Kiran finds out Vishal’s stealth fight using camera and interaction with Keerthy Suresh are really nice. Vishal has done a remarkable job with the action sequences. Of course, he has become the Kollywood’s topmost actor performing stunts. But when it comes to the romantic scenes, it’s little disappointing to see that Lingusamy has tried replicating the same touch of first part.
Moreover, the makers affirmed that Meera Jasmine is replaced by Keerthy Suresh in this film, but we see that there is no connection between. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is given a terror look only through the dialogues and she does nothing other than that. Keerthy Suresh has worked very hard to deliver a good performance and there is nothing to blame upon her. Munishkanth does his best with his performance and although his hilarious scenes are limited, they’re good.
Backgrounds score by Yuvan Shankar Raja is phenomenally one of the best in the recent times. Kambathu Ponne song is good and cinematography is decent.
Overall, Sandakozhi 2 is a passable entertainer, which can be watched with family. Don’t think or strain much about it.

Verdict: A passable entertainer for the season, where episodes are good, but it could have been yet more engrossing.
