  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-4
If you like your 'truth' bloodied, here it goes. This time RGV's newly packaged don is of a different breed, but barely matches the ballsy bhaigiri of the original. Cut back fifteen years - when Ramu on creative Viagra, ripped open Mumbai's ominous crime diaries for cinematic consumption.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-6
Ramgopal Varma has delivered several exceptional gangster films. As a matter of fact, RGV has made the maximum films in this genre, creating a rich repertoire over the years. SATYA and COMPANY stand out as milestone films, which have influenced and motivated a plethora of gangster films

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
Satya defined a Bollywood genre and earned instant cult following. Fifteen years on, Satya 2 defies all logic.Pretty much like he had done with his ill-advised remake of Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay, Ram Gopal Varma unabashedly trivialises an idea that had worked famously the first time around,Satya,

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-0
To say that the story is trite and vapid is an understatement. Being a sequel of a film that scored as the most bold work about the dark life of Mumbai’s underworld, Satya 2 is one blemish of a film to carry the pious Satya name! It isn’t long before Satya revises and rectifies the mistakes of his preceding

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-4
Satya 2 didn't need to be called Satya 2. There's no connection to the original Satya whatsoever. If anything, christening this film Satya 2 is a sign of Ram Gopal Verma's despair; trying to cash in on the film that made him a true force, a distinctive voice in Bollywood that heralded change

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-2
First things first. Satya has nothing in common with Satya 2. The only purpose the 2013 film serves and brings to the fore is to remind you that director Ram Gopal Varma had once upon a time made a brilliant film about the underworld, its modus operandi and peculiarities in 1998.

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-2
When 'Satya' came out, it changed the way Indian cinema did crime. Ram Gopal Varma borrowed liberally from the robust gangsta genre from Hollywood, and made it his own. He set his story in the dark mazes of Mumbai, and gave us a bunch of characters Indian cinema hadn't seen.

  •  One India -Nabanita Rating-3
The man once credited for his great filmmaking, is no longer the industry's favourite. Instead, his Box office success seems to be eluding him now. The man in concern is none other than the once God of underworld filmmaking Ram Gopal Varma, who has received tremendous blastings in the last few years

  •  Book My Show -Shadab Hasnain Rating-3
‘Maangne se kab milta, cheenne se sab milta’ is the official slogan of Satya 2, the official sequel of the 1998 cult-classic, Satya. Before writing anything about the film, I just can’t help but wonder how a film, which is the sequel to a movie which defined an era in Indian cinema and enjoys a permanent

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
Maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma's whim and fancy that every creation of his is avante-garde.Looking at the recent damp-squibs of RGV including the likes of Not A Love Story, Department, 26/11 and now Satya 2, one can easily assess that the filmmaker has lost his sheen

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-3
Satya 2 is Ram Gopal Varma’s latest take on the state of the Mumbai mafia. Satya, released in 1998, was a landmark. It redefined Hindi cinema and helped create Mumbai Noir, a school of dark, gritty movies that explored the underbelly of the city.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-3
Cinema has the power to shock you, but Ram Gopal Varma takes that quite literally in 'Satya 2'. In one particularly gruesome scene, a burkha-clad woman wielding an electric drill directs the weapon towards a rapist's crotch, and blood splatters everywhere.

  •  Bollywood Life -Kritika Ajmani Rating-3
We were eagerly waiting for this one, hoping that maverick director Ram Gopal Varma had regained his form at last. But we found very soon after the film started, Satya 2 is not a sequel to the successful and now epic underworld movie Satya, as RGV himself declared a few days ago.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-2
A few years back there was an outrage when Ram Gopal Varma attempted a horror — a remake of the classic movie Sholay. As if to atone for that sin, this time RGV massacres his own best film Satya with a horrendous sequel in the form of Satya 2.

  •  FilmFare -Rachit Gupta Rating-4
Somebody needs to tell Ram Gopal Varma and his team that you can’t just conveniently start and end a film schedule, without finishing the script, or canning the climax or giving actual form to the narrative. For the past few years now, RGV has been consistently serving up lackluster cinema.

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
Most of us remember Satya (1998) fondly. It chartered a new course for Hindi films, invented a whole new genre,and cemented Ram Gopal Varma’s (RGV) place in the industry. After Rangeela and Satya’s fame, RGV was the director who could do no wrong.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-3
Ram Gopal Varma is clearly a clever man. Problematic, provocative, but clever. He’s given us good cinema, and some real bad stuff as well. Yet, why would he take his own best work, cannibalise it and aim this projectile vomit at us, fans of his 1998 'Satya'? Because, I believe, he’s a genius in decay.

  •  Indiaglitz - Rating-4
Ram Gopal Verma has long since been experimenting with middle-budget movies( Not a love story, Phoonk, Raktacharitra etc) and this time round he does one better(in a sense) by taking in an entire cast of unknowns and framing an underworld story around them.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-3
RGV has titled his new film Satya 2 because Satya clicked once upon a time. This film is not a sequel. Satya 2 merely borrows its title from Satya, the director's pathbreaking hit of 1998 that defined the newage gangster drama for Bollywood. May be, Satya 2 is RGV's bid to remind you when it comes

  •  Deccan Herald -Arkadev Goshal Rating-4
Interesting story? Check. Documentary-style filmmaking? Check. Characters in all hues of grey, plus more? Check. Talented actors? Check. Captivating camera work? Check. So what’s wrong? It’s Ram Gopal Varma and his less-than-mediocre implementation of a film whose subject
