Arjun Bhagwat (Emraan Hashmi) is an ex-cop, who used to
work for Goa police. He has no other source of income, so
wants money and earns his bread by doing all wrong and
good things. He is an atheist and doesn't believe in God,
but in contrast, he regularly visits church to donate off
and on big money to orphans.
There is a pimp-cum-gangster -Sameer, who has been going
through the bad phase of his business due to disappearance
of his hookers. Sameer thinks it is only Arjun Sir who
would investigative and locate the missing girls for which
a big amount is offered to Arjun Bhagwat.
There is another cute girl Jacqueline Fernandez who is a
model, who is in a relationship with Arjun.
Arjun starts his
investigation and finds a cell number which linked to
missing girls. He then decides to send a dummy girl to
arrest the culprit. There is a college girl Reshma (Sulagna
Panigrahi) who gets involved in prostitution to feed her
family. Arjun wants the pimp to sends Reshma as bait and
sends her to a house after calling on that number.
The ex-cop also uses Priya as
the next bait and wants to arrest Pandey red handed. So he
sends Priya to Dheeraj Pandey’s house and then it is an
interesting twist to the tale.
In MURDER 2 we have a sexy-model character played by
Jacqueline Fernandez, who simply has no definite role in
the movie but is there only for a glamour quotient. Emraan
Hashmi and Prashant Narayan were just splendid! Jacqueline
who is expected to be the eye candy and she does it well.
She adds more spice than Mallika Sherawat.
Music is good and Aye Khuda is shot in a brilliant way.
Background score by Raju Singh is okay. Though the
dialogues are crisp. The actions and visuals were dark and
intense, apt to the theme. Anyway the director Mohit Suri
had his heart and mind on the correct track so it is worth
It is a Bloody Suspense Thriller and it remains an
engrossing thriller throughout.
