Pizza II Villa….It looks like they chose this name just to pull the audiences towards the movie screens to get a spectacular opening, which did really work, unfortunately it did not live up to it’s predecessor. It’s not sequel, things which are common is the production house and the music director apart from that, this one is way far from PIZZA.
Producer CV Kumar who made a mark and created a trend of low budget cinema and big returns, didn’t waste much time and decided to introduce movie franchising, which resulted in Pizza II. It’s a story of a English novel writer Jebin discovers that his dead father is bankrupt with an unlisted property in Puducherry. To pay off the debts, he makes a visit to the villa for valuation. The story was well written but Deepan did not execute it well.
Deepan Chakravarthy takes us through a slow paced drama which is not a thriller nor a horror, both these genre does not fit the bill. Before even you could finish half your popcorn there’s intermission, was hoping for a unexpected twist later but was disappointed with that too.
The best thing about Pizza 2 is the cinematography by Deepak Kumarpadhy, complimented with the Art work by Mayan Ela, which is wrapped with amazing score by Santhosh Narayanan. Dolby Atmos was not exploited well in this flick.
Ashok Selvan and Sanchita Shetty were suffice nothing great, Nasser was there a for brief moment, and supporting actors did support it well with what was given. If you go with the expectation you have from PIZZA you will be greatly disappointed as it’s miles apart from the previous one.
The Ingredients were aptly chosen, the base was well kneaded, it had a great spread of technical expertise, but the chef failed to add the right spice and seasoning which makes this PIZZA a half baked one. Right from the first bite it goes cold, a story of this potential needs a racy and gripping screenplay. Spend your money on a Pizza to treat your taste buds rather to watch.
