Overall, a kind of fear full movie.Even though it has a routine start and a routine end,in terms of : Intially,the mafia will have an upper hand and later on the police caughts/kills the mafia, the screen play and dialogues are good.The movie has its own turns & typical Varma twists.A good one for Varma movie lovers.For a routine movie goer,an average stuff.
Rating: 3.0/5
The film comes across with a new introduction to the underworld genre and this time things were done carefully and with reasonable conviction. The first half goes about with good intensity and promise. The second half loses the momentum and there are some drag sequences. The ending might draw some mixed reactions.
Rating: 2.75/5
Satya-2 is the story of a commoner Satya (Puneeth Singh Ratn) who arrives in Mumbai with no past. He joins under the wealthy builder Lahoti (Mahesh Thakur), and gains his confidence. When the power of the underworld has subsided in Mumbai, Satya is on a mission to recreate it, but anonymously. He takes the help of Lahoti and other bigwigs to establish this secret kingdom.
Rating: 2.5/5
Sarvanand has embedded himself in Satya’s role well. Careless looks, fierceness have been portrayed well. Probably Sarvanand must have accepted to this role to take advantage of RGV’s portrayal of character. Anaika seems to be innocent. There seems to be some difference in her face cuts. Her half saree never stayed in her place. Varma is efficient in extracting the talent from artists. RR is horrible.
Rating: 2.5/5
On the whole, Satya 2 is a disappointment and is no where close to the iconic Satya. RGV shows us what he is capable of, for about 20 minutes before the interval. With those scenes, one gets the feeling that he is back on track, before everything goes for a toss in the second half. Let us hope RGV replicates that brilliance for a full two hours in his next project.
Rating: 2.5/5
Overall, Satya 2 is a decent crime thriller, but it fails to match with its prequel. This film can be watched once for Ram Gopal Varma's different angle on underworld mafia.
Rating: 2.5/5
'Satya 2' is somewhat better than Varma’s previous duds, but not on par with prequel ‘Satya’, one of the most acclaimed films of Indian Film Industry.
Rating: 2.25/5
It’s a watchable one. But don’t expect Business man 2 from Puri jagannath.

'Satya 2' (unlinked sequel), thrives on randomness and implausible ideas. This don is unconvincing, seeking no wrath or sympathy of the viewers. The supporting cast is too weak, and the unforgettable bhaichara, the potbellied Kallu maamas and boisterous Bhikus (of Satya fame) are sorely missed.
Rating: 2.0/5
For audience who have not seen Satya & Businessman Satya-2 may look interesting. But he tried to use hero as in Aladdin and the magic lamp. There are so many questions or doubts without suitable answers. If you feel what ever is shown is OK, then u may proceed.
Rating: 2.0/5
As a film maker RGV has long ago lost his credibility. This project has just extended his mental imbalance with gruesome criminal ideology. There are plenty of loopholes in the script with many unrealistic killings and plenty of randomly ignored elements. Yet, it is the RGV’s adept knowledge in arranging the frames with creative camera angles of Vikash Saraf (Ex: Eagle Eye Camera Handling) with deafening background score from Amar Mohile, Kary Arora has blown some sort of conviction into the scenes. Point by point, RGV took to extreme cinematic liberties to show whatever he wants. Insincerity of RGV towards the work was consistently evidential. Neither RGV provided clarity on the business of Company or the way to accomplish its unmentioned goals. With lots of confusion and obscure, unsettled, uncertain episodes driving the story, audience are sure to start scratching their heads.
Rating: 2.0/5
Satya-2 is neither a sequel of the legendary Satya nor is a tribute to the classic. It is a half baked Businessman movie with few scenes reminding of the old Ram Gopal Varma. The movie is totally devoid of logic and will be of no use to Sharwanand’s career. You can watch it only if you want it to watch it at any cost.
Rating: 2.0/5
"Satya 2" is not good as Satya movie, the first half of the movie saved the Ram Gopal Varma from another flop. Who like Varma direction will enjoy this movie?
Rating: 1.75/5
The film touted to be Satya sequel though has some scenes inspired by real life incident, doesn't has much to offer. Ram Gopal Varma who want to create sensation referred to Delhi rape incident and showed his style of judgement. Start of the film evokes interest and the interval ends in a bang. Except that everything is predictable. Second half disappoints all.Ram Gopal Varma fails to create the kind of impact he created with Satya. Slow pace of the film, bad screen play, climax spoiled the film.
Rating: 1.5/5
The movie as a whole will be a waste time and money to watch except for those cine critics whose profession and interest is to analyze the factors that make a movie flat to learn and make a note of what not to do.
Rating: 1.5/5
On the whole, RGV’s version of Businessman is just an ordinary film and even ardent Ram Gopal Varma fans may feel a great sense of disappointment after seeing this film.
Rating: 1.5/5
If you want to watch a Varma film, then rent out a DVD of Satya. But if you venture into a multiplex to watch it, be warned you may come out losing the respect and adoration you once had for Ram Gopal Varma! , How else can one explain the relevance of making Satya 2? The film is primarily the story of a guy who makes crime his business. It is a track that was dealt with by Puri Jagannadh in Businessman. Looks like Varma wanted to show it more realistically, in his inimitable style. It’s one thing to have a basic idea and another to transform that idea into a film.

Satya 2 does not have a single character that is half decent – one that the audience can relate to and empathise with. There is no Bhikhu Mhatre here nor is there a Kallu Mama, who might have pulled this numbingly dull film out of the trough. The male protagonist (Puneet Singh Ratn) – he is called Satya again – arrives in Mumbai from an unspecified village and sets out to rewrite the rules that govern the Mumbai underworld.
Rating: 1.0/5
Ram Gopal Varma simply made a film out of vague idea. He hasn't done any homework and it is evident in each every scene. Logic goes for a toss and logic cannot be ignored in these type of films. Director shouldn't give a scope to criticize when he wants to project his protagonist as a brilliant entrepreneur.

the film, seems to have drawn inspiration from Mahesh Babu's Telugu film The Businessman and Upendra's Kannada film Super in parts. But she has tried her best to bring originality in the script. She has tried to narrate the current crime scenario in a different angle.Overall, Satya 2 is a decent crime thriller, but it fails to match with its prequel. This film can be watched once Ram Gopal Varma's different angle on underworld mafia.
Rating: --
So many years after "Satya" spoke a new cinematic language, RGV is back in form displaying the sparks of brilliance that made the first "Satya" a trendsetting experience. No relation to the earlier film except the one of Bhai-giri, "Satya 2" sneaks slyly into Mumbai's dark dangerous sinister and ominous underbelly.
