With reasonable anticipation, Yatra 2, the biographical political drama’s sequel, debuted on huge screens today, precisely five years after the original film’s premiere. View our review to find out how it performs.

Story

The narrative starts with the 2009 AP election campaign, which was held in the wake of the death of Rajashekara Reddy, the then-chief minister (Mammootty). The main focus of the film is on the events that follow in Jagan Mohan Reddy’s (Jiiva) personal and political lives.

 Extra Credits

Mahi V Raghav tells the tale in a well-organized way. It’s amazing how he manages the screenplay and the story.

Jiiva does a respectable job portraying the real Jagan, and his acting style is commendable. He performs admirably given the limitations he faces.

Additionally, Mammootty gives his greatest performance. During his public contact, he uses emotive and goosebumps-inducing language.

Santhosh Narayanan’s amazing soundtrack and vocals breathe life into the movie. He deserves praise for keeping the film interesting throughout.

Negative Points

The story is written deftly. Mahi V Raghav pays little attention to some of the most important events of YS Jagan’s life. He could have focused more of the movie’s discussion on these kinds of personal and political issues.
Aside from the narrative, Mahi V Raghav might have been more cautious in how Jiiva portrayed Jagan. Even though Jiiva can mimic Jagan on television, he struggles with emotion in many of the sequences. The public and Jagan’s family could have engaged in a few tearful moments, intercut by the writer-director. Yatra 2 would have undoubtedly been more intriguing with such sequences.

Technical Aspects

Mahi V. Raghav, the film’s writer and director, was successful in portraying his ideas. He could have, however, concentrated on the more poignant elements of the movie to give it greater depth.

It is necessary to give the casting director credit for selecting the appropriate actors for the roles. Santhosh Narayanan is a talented musician. Madhie’s cinematography and Shravan Katikaneni’s editing are commendable. Although the runtime is brief, the writing makes the second half seem a little sluggish.

Verdict

Overall, Yatra 2 is a sincere attempt to depict the events in YS Jagan’s personal and political life following the passing of his father, Rajashekara Reddy. In their parts, Mammootty and Jiiva are excellent. Santhosh Narayanan, who composed the music, takes the film to a new level. Conversely, the shortcomings include a slow second part, a few unresolved incidents in YS Jagan’s life, and a few emotionally detached sequences that lack resonance. If you are a fan of the leader in question, Yatra 2 is the best biographical political picture; otherwise, it will leave a general audience feeling as though they have seen a passable movie.
