Julie 2 is a Hindi thriller film written, co-produced and directed by Deepak Shivdasani and produced by Vijay Nair.[1] It features Raai Laxmi in the lead role which marks her debut in Hindi cinema.[2][3] This is the sequel to Shivdasani's earlier film Julie (2004).

Viju Shah composes the film's score and soundtrack while Sameer Reddy handles the cinematography. Principal photography commenced in September 2015. Filming locations include Mumbai, Hyderabad and Dubai. The film's first look poster was released on 14 February 2016 coinciding with Valentine's Day.

The film was released on 24 November 2017.[4]

Plot[edit]

A wannabe actress Julie (Raai) struggles through sleazy innuendos before caving in and getting embroiled in the shadowy world that purportedly finances the film industry. Her first love Mohit abandons her at the first sign of trouble while her second (Ravi Kisshen) uses her and moves on to his next conquest. The third one is Dubai Don Lala (Dev Gill) and her fourth a cricketer who thinks she won’t suit the sati savitri image his parents expect of his bride. So that leaves Julie in a huddle and egged on by her woman Friday, Annie (Rati Agnihotri) she chooses Jesus – only to be gunned down the day after her symbolic baptism. There’s talk about her having cleansed herself by accepting Jesus in her heart but the image that precedes it is one with her doing the wet number in a see through white shirt. So much for respecting religion.

The rest of the film has a ferocious looking ACP Dev Dutt (Aditya Srivastava) trying to arrive at a decent enough reason for her murder. Of course, the power broker with CM aspirations and a dead wife who looks like Julie’s doppelganger, may have something to do with it. But you wouldn’t be bothered because the intent is not to thrill you with suspense but to titillate with suggestive poses and a never-ending expanse of flesh.[5]
