The Special Crime Unit is summoned to investigate a series of deadly shootings at a nightclub in Mumbai. Leading the charge is ACP Avinash Verma (played by Manoj Bajpayee), who delves deep into the case. Initially targeting a politician’s secretary, the investigation uncovers layers of complexity within the shootout.

Throughout the film, a palpable tension grips the audience, heightened by stellar performances. The plot takes unexpected turns, revealing the ruthless nature of the antagonist. Despite its engrossing nature, the narrative occasionally falters, leaving some loose ends untied. However, a surprising plot twist adds a compelling element to the story.


Directed by Aban Bharucha Deohans, this film requires a refinement in its subtleties to truly shine. While Deohans demonstrates a penchant for the unexpected, it’s narrowly executed, yet her writing remains consistently polished as it delves into various aspects of crime.

The meticulousness of a crime investigation is adeptly portrayed, showcasing how law enforcement connects mental strategies and observations to tangible evidence and forensic insights.

“Silence 2 – The Night Owl Bar Shootout” heavily relies on Manoj Bajpayee’s portrayal of ACP Verma, who adds depth to the narrative. As Verma’s team engages in a thorough investigation, new characters are introduced, including Prachi Desai as Sanjana, Sahil Vaid as Amit, Vaquar Shaikh as Raj, and Nimesh Balaji Shinde as Javed, all delivering commendable performances. While Shruti Bapna’s Jaya leaves an impact, Manuj Bhaskar’s character feels inconsistent.

The script attempts to integrate elements of ACP Verma’s personal life but falls short. Moreover, the film’s major flaws lie in its peculiar camera angles and sporadic editing, detracting from the story’s flow. Additionally, the script occasionally meanders and contains glaring errors that could have been avoided with more attention to detail.

Rating: 3/5

Manoj Bajpayee dominates the screen with his assured and robust performance in this gripping thriller. Perhaps renaming it “The Night Owl Bar Shootout” would have been more fitting, even if abbreviated for Indian audiences, as “Silence 2” feels out of place and disconnected from the storyline. This movie earns a solid three out of five stars.
