Critic Review
Mardaani 2 (2019) It starts with ‘I know everything’ Shivani Shivaji Roy making a heroic entry to the crime scene. A girl is brutally raped and Shivani bashes her colleague for focusing on the media rather than the case. And she hates the reporters. Investigating the case, she opens up a couple of new ones. A psychopath named Sunny (Vishal Jethwa) is behind all this. The second half of the film follows Tom & Jerry’s format between Shivani and Sunny. With the obligation of getting transferred, Shivani decides to wrap up this case before she’s gone for bad. The rest of the story is all about how and when she’ll get till Sunny..
