Mahesh Bhatt directed Sadak 2 is a big let down. The film started trending on Twitter after it was streamed by Disney+ Hotstar on Friday evening.
While a couple of trade analysts gave the film 1-star rating, other netizens also didn’t seem very impressed with the film, which stars Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles.
Sadak 2 has been facing a barrage of dislikes since some days, especially in the aftermath of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. After June 14, when the actor was found dead at his Bandra apartment, many believed in the theory that he was not treated well in the film industry because he was an ‘outsider’. Later, this turned into a strong campaign against many actors and filmmakers whose relatives are also in the film business.
Released on August 12, the trailer of Sadak 2 has been at the receiving end. It currently holds the record for being the most-disliked video on YouTube, with a staggering dislike ratio of 95%. The close second spot belongs to Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie who has a dislike ratio of 93% on his video titled “Can this video get 1 million dislikes?” with nearly 5 million “dislikes”.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the film:

Just cannot be compared to its first part… Lacklustre plot… Lethargic and lifeless screenwriting… Music doesn’t work either… Terrible waste of the brand [#Sadak] and talent associated with this film. #Sadak2Review pic.twitter.com/Tyt1qQR6do

Film has no story connection with Sadak-1, just to rake moolah from its brand makers forcibly adjusted Ravi kishore angle to the film, which makes it more terrible. Every character is shoddily written & performed. Only Sanjay dutt did a fair job, adtiya roy wasted. #Sadak2
