Akashaganga 2 review- A sequel that fails to impress!



Star Cast

Veena Nair, Ramya Krishnan

Akashaganga 2 is a sequel made by director Vinayan to the 1999 hit Akashaganga. If you have seen the earlier one, a horror comedy mixed with some folk tales, you know pretty much what to expect from the sequel.

Akashaganga ended with the news that Maya (Divya Unni) was pregnant. In the beginning of this one we are informed that she died while giving birth to a daughter, who is Arathy Varma (Veena Nair), a medical student now.

She is the student chairperson of the medical college and an atheist. Along with a friend who believes in black magic, Arathy and her gang goes to an ashram run by Soumini Devi (Ramya Krishnan). There Arathy talks to her mother’s spirit. 

Back home, she goes to their family temple, which is closed now and opens some boxes there. Trouble starts from then on as the spirit of Ganga (the late Mayuri, who has been recreated here) starts following her. 

With some scary looking spirits, a cadaver (or corpse) that creates mayhem at times and the usual eerie moments that are mandatory in movies of the genre, this one too offers a decent mix. Still one gets a feeling that things could have been much better with smarter writing and a stronger storyline. 

The popular number Puthumazhayayi vannu nee… has been used to the right effect. 

Debutante Veena Nair, who plays the female lead, performs her part with confidence. Ramya Krishnan has to look serious and she does that quite well. Sreenath Bhasi, Vishnu Govind and Dharmajan Bolghatty shines in the comedy section, while Hareesh Kanaran and Salim Kumar disappoints. 

Akashaganga 2 is an extension of the earlier episode, with some scares and comedy. Go with limited expectations and then, this one could be a fine one time watch.
