Khuda Haafiz 2 review by The Hindu

The review by Anuj Kumar says Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2 has a massive improvement on the first chapter of the franchise and the writer-director has delivered a gripping action drama that is not bereft of socio-political realities.

“Unlike the strait-jacketed first part that was hard to invest in, part two is a little more layered and with comments on the criminal-police nexus in Uttar Pradesh, a territory that hasn’t been explored much in popular Hindi cinema,” reviews The Hindu.

Khuda Haafiz 2 review by NDTV

Reviewed by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV gave 2 and a half stars to the film out of 5. The headline read, ‘Vidyut Jammwal isn’t the only reason action film passes muster.’

“Khuda Haafiz: Chapter 2 – Agni Pariksha is an actioner that delivers a strong first-half build-up that paves the way for an all-out post-interval crusade by the protagonist against the criminals and their accomplices, in uniform or otherwise,” reviews NDTV.

Khuda Haafiz 2 review by The Indian Express

Shubhra Gupta gave 2 stars to the Vidyut Jammwal starrer. The headline read, ‘A full-on Vidyut Jammwal jamboree.’

“No spoilers here, it’s all in part one, which had gone straight to a streamer when it came out in 2020, in the middle of the lockdown. In the sequel too, what passes for a plot is just an excuse to hang a full-on Jammwal jamboree; like the first edition, this one also goes full tilt at the high-octane action, the reason why this film exists,” reviews The Indian Express.

Khuda Haafiz 2 review by Pinkvilla

The review by Avinash Lohana says Vidyut Jammwal, Shivaleeka Oberoi’s film has a purpose but lacks direction.

“While the intention of Khuda Haafiz: Chapter II – Agni Pariksha is noble, what it truly lacks is a direction. The movie constantly treaded on the thin line between the good and the bad, often confused on which path it wanted to march forward eventually,” reviews Pinkvilla.

Khuda Haafiz 2 review by News 18

The review by Zinia Bandyopadhyay said Faruk Kabir, and Vidyut Jammwal take the film quite a few notches higher.

“Khuda Haafiz Chapter II does not hold back on anything. Like Vidyut’s character, the film gets ruthless in its treatment of problems. Gore abounds, and the film portrays things as it is, without any effort to sugarcoat the issues,” reviews News 18.
