The story of this film is penned by Narendra Bajaj and its boring right from the second act of the film. Such a routine plot is not at all appealing to any section of the audience. Sunjiv Puri's screenplay is not thrilling at all. The suspense of the film doesn't excite the audience at all. The movie is so slow in the first half that it completely distracts you and keeps no excitement.
Zarine Khan's acting is not at all impressive. She fail's to make a good screen presence. One the other hand Gautam Rode's acting is good but due to it's dull script, his character doesn't shine well. Lillette Dubey's acting is good in parts. the rest of the cast is so-so.
Ananth Narayan Mahadevan's direction could have been better. Of course, one will have more expectations from a National Award winning director, but he ruins the expectations of the audience as the film lacks the thrill element. So overall his direction is average. Cinematography by Maneesh Bhatt is poor. Ananth's editing is also loose, it's not at all sharp. Aaj Zid is the only song that is melodious.
On the whole, Aksar 2 is a complete disaster. This kind of film will hardly find any audience. It's an annoying show all the way.
