Sadak 2, Mahesh Bhatt’s grand return to directing after two decades, is a major disappointment, at least that’s what Twitter believes. The movie started trending on Twitter after it was streamed Friday night by Disney+ Hotstar.
While a few trade analysts gave the film 1 star, other netizens also seemed unimpressed with the film, starring Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur.

Sadak 2 has been facing a barrage of dislikes for several days now, especially in the wake of the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. After June 14, when the actor was found dead in his apartment in Bandra, many believed in the theory that he was not treated well in the film industry because he was an “outsider”. Later this became a fierce campaign against many actors and filmmakers whose relatives are also in the film world.
The trailer for Sadak 2, released on August 12, was on the receiving end. It currently holds the record for the most liked video on YouTube, with a staggering 95% dislike rate. The closest second spot belongs to Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie, who has a 93% dislike rate on his video titled “Can this video get 1 million dislikes?” with nearly 5 million “dislikes”.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the film:
#Sadak2 – Review ⭐️TORTURE of EPIC proportions, full of nonsense yet hilarious script and screenplay. Villain Gyaanprakash will make you laugh like crazy, best comic actor of 2020. Bhatt saab career weakest direction, why this movie only guru Gyaanprakash knows. #Sadak2Review pic.twitter.com/65yJ6hbZDP— Sumitkadel (@SumitkadeI) August 28, 2020
However, these are only the first reactions. As more publications with detailed reviews appear, the general opinion may change.
