With all the hate surrounding the release of the movie, Sadak 2’s trailer became the second-most “disliked” video in the world. “—–IN THE WORLD!” WHAAAAAAT? Yes, you read it right, garnering 12 million dislikes on YouTube. Sadak 2 trailer was immensely disrelished. We thought that it would cool off when the movie hits the screen as Alia Bhatt has proved herself many times. However, Sadak 2 set a new record by becoming the lowest-rated film on IMDb with a score of 1.1.
The other Bollywood films that have got such poor IMDb ratings are Ajay Devgan’s ‘Himmatwala’ with a score of 1.7, Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Aag’, with a rating of 1.7, Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Drona’ with an IMDb score of 2, and Himesh Reshammiya’s ‘Karzzzz’ with a 2.1 rating.
Anna M. M. Vetticad of the Firstpost, “It is not possible to be angry with Sadak 2 for its half-baked ideas and quarter-baked script though, because it is too boring to be worthy of even anger. Thrown in here and there are lacklustre twists, dreary songs, multiple references to suicide and faith without any depth, ordinary cinematography (barring a couple of stunning aerial shots of mountain roads), some cheap-looking shots clearly done in a studio, footage from Sadak and Pooja’s voice giving Ravi inexplicable advice.”
Rating: 0.25 stars
Jyoti Sharma from Hindustan Times remarked that it is one of 2020’s worst films, take this trip at your own risk.Weighed down by the ponderous story and sluggish pace, none of them adds much to Sadak 2. Even the naturally gifted Alia Bhatt fails to rise above the expository dialogues and the leaden narrative. It comes across as a cheap knock-off, a lot like this film.
The Indian Express
Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express in her Sadak 2 review called it, “Terrible!” The film is, in one word, terrible: why would anyone want to make something so dated, so jaded, in this day and age? There was nothing madly original about that Sanjay Dutt-Pooja Bhatt starrer, but something about the mix of pulpy plot and performance, toplined by the incomparable Sadashiv Amrapurkar as the evil Maharani, made it one of the most memorable films of that era.
Movie rating: One star
Rahul Desai of Film Companion called the film “dreadful” and “atrocious”. He bemoaned that the performances of the actors “sticks out like a sore thumb.” Moreover, he said that everyone’s a bit cuckoo in Sadak 2.The irony about atrocious films is that talent sticks out like a sore thumb. Alia throwing the kitchen sink at emotional scenes makes for a strange sort of cognitive dissonance – it’s like everyone else except her got the memo. After a while, her sincerity starts to look satirical, with echoes of her ‘Genius of the Year’ performance.
According to us, we are not completely sure that the movie is that terrible or just a victim of indignation and vote-bridaging. See it for yourself as well!

Malaika Arora’s love for Aloe Vera
Malaika Arora has many beauty tips up her sleeves.

Some have dry skin, some have oily, some have acne-prone skin and some have extremely sensitive skin like I do. I have to be extremely careful of what I put in my skin cos any wrong product can do more damage than benefit.” Arora said she swears by fresh aloe vera gel. “A natural ingredient that I swear by for my skin is fresh Aloe vera gel right from my very own home garden. Fresh Aloe vera agrees with most of the skin types so anyone can try it. Just cut one piece, slice it open and scoop up the gooey goodness from within and apply it evenly on ur face like a cooling mask.”
