Indian 2 Trailer reactions – Netizens miss the ‘Indian’ magic


The Indian 2 trailer has been receiving mixed reactions from the netizens, especially the Tamil cinema audiences who grew up watching the 1996-released first installment, Indian. The cine-goers point out that the trailer of Shankar’s upcoming film is quite messy, owing to its execution and too many characters. They also feel that the essence of the original is missing in all the promotional materials of Indian 2, that are released so far. Some even point out that the larger-than-life approach adapted by Shankar is not working for the film.

However, Kamal Haasan, who returns to play Veerasekharan Senapathy in Indian 2, highly impressed the film fanatics with his impeccable screen presence, unique get-ups, and exceptional voice modulation. The netizens feel that the Ulagayanayan is back to impress the Tamil cinema audience with yet another power-packed performance, in the social thriller. They also point out that director Shankar promises a visually-enthralling theatrical experience with the film, thanks to the excellent visuals and production quality.

Kamal Haasan’s role in Indian franchise

For the uninitiated, Indian followed the life of Veerasekharan Senapathy, a freedom fighter and doting father, who decides to clean up the system in his own ways, after his daughter's tragic demise.
