Making a sequel is no easy task. It has to live up to the original and fulfil the hype and expectations that surround it. Billa 2, a sequel to earlier hit Ajith's Billa has managed to entertain audience. Thankfully, Ajith carries the burden in his shoulders to deliver a convincing performance that makes the movie a special one for his fans.
Directed by Chakri Toleti , Billa 2 is about how David Billa, an ordinary young man becomes an international don. It traces the past of Billa. Made on a lavish budget, a major portion of the movie unfolds in Goa and Georgia. The movie boasts of a huge star cast that includes Parvathy Omanakuttan, Bruna Abdullah, Vidyut Jamwal, Rahman, Manoj K Jayan among others.
David Billa (Ajith) is a Lankan refugee who comes to a refugee camp in Tamilnadu. He raises his arms against injutice meted out to theme there thereby incrs the wrath of officials and police. They conspire to end him, but he escapes using his brain. Now he comes acrosaa few mafia and aspires to become one. SLowly he moves towards achieving his mission and meets Abbasi (Sudhanshu Pandey) in Goa.
Abbasi is a dreaded mafia don. Billa manages to win his patronage and makes trip to Georgia to meet an international don Dmitri (Vidyut Jamwal). As it hapens, the rise of Billa creates a rift in between him Billa and Abbasi. Now Billa decides to announce his arrival. Several hurdles come his way including Dmitri himself. How he accomplished the task is the rest.
Ajith is the mainstay. He is at ease playing the role that he perfected in Billa. He speaks less but lets his mucls talk momre. A treat for his fans who love to see him as a unbeatable macho-mman.
Parvathy and Bruna play minuscule roles with nno bearing in the script. Sudhanshu and Vidyut hog equal screen space and makes a good watch from the regular cliched baddies of Tamil cinema.
Rahman, Ilavarasu and Sriman are also in the cast. R D Rajasekhar's cinematography is amazing. He captures the chase well. Unfortunately Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is a flop show. Era Murugan's dialogues worth a mention.
All said, the movie produced by Sunir Khetripal, Suresh Balajee and George Pius, holds attention thanks to Ajith.
