Emraan Hashmi returns in Mahesh Bhatt’s action sequel
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Esha Gupta
Based on Delhi’s notorious illegal gun trade Jannat 2 is the sequel to Jannat (2008) which concentrated on dishonest cricket match- fixing.
This sequel revolves around police officer Pratap Raghuvanshi (Randeep Hooda) and his infiltrator Sonu Dilli (Emraan Hashmi).
Sonu Dilli is a street-smart hustler who lives by his wits selling locally produced guns for his livelihood.
Pratap Raghuvanshi is a hard bitten police officer who has a personal vendetta against the arm trade stopping at nothing to achieve his ultimate goal – to get rid of gun trade in North India.
Pratap forms an unlikely liaison and a convenient partner with Sonu by working on the trail of the illegal arms trail.
Working undercover, Sonu quickly makes his way to the top exposing those involved in the illicit gun activities.
But Sonu’s life is soon shaken when he comes across Jhanvi a young doctor. She makes him realise the consequences of his actions.
Sonu’s loyalty and faithfulness eventually forces him to make a choice with unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for all three of them in this gritty thriller.
Jannat 2 was originally titled Informer. But Mahesh Bhatt decided to keep the same title as Jannat so that audiences can easily relate to the film.
Esha Gupta plays the female lead alongside Emraan Hashmi. She is a former Miss India International making her Bollywood film debut in this movie.
Randeep Hooda plays the role of the police officer originally offered to Vivek Oberoi who opted to do Krissh 3 instead.
Randeep secured the role due to his performance in the film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai which he won critical acclaim.
Jannat 2 is releasing by 20th Century Fox who is slowly seeing the prominence of Bollywood films besides Hollywood releases.
