Director Ram Gopal Verma hinted that Satya 2 will be his last film on the underworld and that now he wants to make romantic movies.[13][14][15][16] Satya 2 was released on 28 October 2013 in U. A. E. and 8 November 2013 in India.[17][18][19] The film received mixed reviews, Subhash K. Jha of Bollywood News stated that Ram Gopal Varma returns to form with Satya 2.[20] Samreen Tungekar of Bolly spice has stated "Ram Gopal Verma had made it clear that Satya 2 is not a sequel to Satya, and he has evidently made no attempt of making this film look like a prequel or a sequel too. Satya 2 stands as an independent story and does well for itself as a film."[21]

Plot[edit]

The plot Satya is narrated by a voice (Makrand Deshpande) about the underworld that has been slowed down from the last decade in Mumbai. The story is based on Satya (Puneet Singh Ratn) who comes to Mumbai and starts working for Lahoti (Mahesh Thakur) a construction magnate. Trying to beat a competitor in a deal he gets involved with the mafia and some underworld elements who don't have the clout anymore. Slowly he plans assassinations for Lahoti and other business people in Mumbai and around India and grows to be a go to person for such crimes. During this time he gets his friend production money for his film and gets a flat and brings his girlfriend Chitra (Anaika Soti). He makes enemies all around and in a shootout with cops loses his girlfriend and also his friend. But even thought he is captured he is able to get out of jail through the Company he creates with his connections and begins his reign as the newest underworld leader in Mumbai.

Development[edit]

Context[edit]

"All this was in the early eighties and we are now in 2013 and since there is almost no underworld now, it is clear that there's a vacuum and whenever there's a vacuum in any lucrative business there will always be an entrepreneur to step in.

If 'Satya' was a story of a man who came in 1998 and shaped the then existing underworld, 'Satya 2' is about another man who comes in 2013 to reinvent the underworld. To that extent I would say this is a futuristic film not in terms of science fiction but in terms of that there's no precedent for the protagonist of 'Satya 2'. He starts a new underworld company based on his study of the mistakes of all the earlier dons and also on the ways he develops to deal with the modern day policing methods" said Ram Gopal Varma.

"The police is completely caught off guard by this never before experienced menace of the new Company and the reason for this is that the police will always be lesser than a criminal enterprise in their vision ..That is because the police is merely an evolved system whereas a criminal entrepreneur for want of a better word is a visionary in his own field. Only after a new kind of crime happens will the police learn how to contain or prevent it. So it follows that if a completely new kind of a criminal appears on the horizon, their past experience will be null and void and they will again have to start from scratch

So in one line 'Satya 2' is about a man whose thinking starts where the earlier Dons thinking ended and where the police cannot even begin to think." said Ram Gopal Varma.

Production[edit]

"As a film maker I have been doing a deep study of the underworld and its gangsters for more than two decades primarily for the purposes of gathering subject matters for my films and to get inspired for characters from real life references..And that's how films like Satya and company happened..Then one day it occurred to me what if a guy out there studied the same gangsters not for becoming a film maker but for the purpose of becoming a gangster himself.it's that idea of mine which finally shaped itself into Satya 2.,A new age gangster will obviously be armed with the mistakes of the earlier gangsters and also with the modern day policing methods". said Ram Gopal Varma.One romantic song of Satya 2 was shot in Kashmir in June 2013.[27] The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) passed Satya 2 with A certificate with 3 cuts.[28] 'Satya 2' is made within the budget of Rs 15 crore.[2]
