Critic Reviews Ko 2

  • Filmi Beat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-5/10
First half is slow as the film takes time to establish its characters. Thanks to a surprisingly good backstory and super-smart dialogues, the second half entertains you by keeping you hooked till the very end. Though Ko 2 has a plot which is not new to Tamil cinema, what makes the film watchable is its relevance to today's political system and some intelligent writing by its director.

  • Behindwoods | Review By -BW Review Rating-5/10
Ko 2 does not instantly make you hit the ‘like’ button like the previous outing Ko. And it should be noted that this isn't a sequel to Ko but only another part of the Ko franchise. There is merely only one dialogue reference from the previous part. To cut to the point, one can appreciate Ko 2 only if he has the patience to sit through the entire film. The decision totally lies in the viewer’s hand and the command from the narrator is missing.

  • Times Of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-5/10
In better hands, Ko 2 would have been a crowd-pleasing political thriller and given how topical it is given that the state election is just a couple of days away, it would also have managed to generate a huge buzz for all the right reasons. But for almost an hour into Ko 2, a remake of the Telugu film Pratinidhi, you keep wishing that the filmmakers had had the sense to go for a different title as this one keeps reminding how inferior it feels to KV Anand's Ko

  • DNA | Review By -Latha Srinivasan Rating-5/10
Unfortunately, Ko 2 falls short on numerous aspects. National Award-winning actor Bobby Simha is talented, but as a hero, he falls flat. He lacks the charisma to carry off the urban hero. The first half of the film is extremely slow and drags while the second half is where the story unravels. The romance between Bobby Simha and Nikki Galrani lacks chemistry and is poorly written as well.

  • Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-4/10
The narrative meanders aimlessly in the first half, before coming awake in the second half, analyzing everything from the recent floods in the state, the Tasmac issue, the education system, health care and the burden of unreasonable taxes. Director Sarath’s intentions may have been good but Ko 2 is too dreary to make an impact.

  • Danie Britto | Review By -Danie Britto Rating-5/10
Ko 2 is not an edge of the seat thriller, it’s a political drama which you can enjoy if you have some political knowledge and the patience to watch a movie which has twists but does not offer the thrill you would expect. The first half is a tad slower and the second half makes up for the pace, let down in the first half pretty decently. And some political party fan boys are not going to like the movie at any cost! Ko 2 – Pretty Decent and entertaining though. Watchable once.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Baradwaj Rangan
Ko 2 is a nice-enough change from the macho vigilante movies we usually get. It’s probably the election-season effect, but I got all warm-fuzzy watching a common man teach a lesson to a member of the ruling class. The punchy dialogues cover the Swachh Bharat Tax, the recent Chennai floods, and the depressing fact that basics like education and health are being increasingly privatised while liquor distribution stays with the government.

  • Piping Hot Views | Review By -Piping Hot Views Review
Ko 2 sets you up for a journey you expect to be exciting with a fairly good premise and start but flounders and deviates all through its course into poorly conceived romance-comedy, villainy and vengeance. With the casting issues not helping its case either, it makes a mockery of sorts of its much more serious and clinical predecessor Ko.
