The patriotic theme, combined with nostalgic elements, ensures it will be a big hit. Gadar 2 fulfills high expectations, offering drama, emotions, action, the reprised songs, and, of course, the iconic hand pump sequence. 

Anil Sharma ensures he includes every element for a blockbuster.” Anuj Kumar from The Hindu remarked, “While not as provocative as the original, Anil Sharma opts for a middle ground. Perhaps, the subdued tone is a response to the heightened socio-political atmosphere outside the theater compared to the original’s release in 2001. 

However, it’s commendable that Sharma has toned down the jingoistic aspect.” Film critic and trade analyst Komal Nahta described “Gadar 2” as “not just a film but a celebration, evoking emotions that resonate with every Indian.” Anindita Mukherjee of India Today gave it 3.5/5 stars, noting, “Gadar 2 surpasses expectations, successfully pulling at your heartstrings, with Sunny Paaji shouldering the emotional load.”

Monika Rawal Kukreja from Hindustan Times mentioned, “Gadar 2 falters in terms of story and pacing but brings back the mass entertainment factor, making it a value-for-money watch.” Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express, with a 1.5/5 stars rating, commented, “Sunny paaji still delivers a powerful performance, and his iconic ‘dhai-kilo-ka-haath’ retains its impact. And also, the hand pump makes a comeback.”

Sequel

The end credits tease a “to be continued,” sparking excitement among fans for a potential sequel. When asked about it, Anil Sharma hinted at future plans, stating, “You’ll need to be patient.
