: Robin Hood (Ravi Teja) is a selfish guy whose life revolves around himself. A trip to India to settle a land dispute introduces him to Chaitra (Rakul) who he falls in love with. But she has a secret.
: Kick 2 begins exactly where Kick ended with a middle aged Kalyan - the eccentric protagonist from the 2009 predecessor - introducing his NRI son, Robin Hood, a much leaner looking Ravi Teja. But unlike his compulsive kick seeking father, our man is driven by the desire to keep himself comfortable come what may. But from then on the narrative trails off into a different story altogether.
Robin Hood (Ravi Teja) flies to India hoping to 'settle' a disputed ancestral property in Hyderabad with the ultimate aim of making a fortune by selling it. He runs into Chaitra, a village girl masquerading as a screen writer. Why? That's the twist in the tale that is revealed much later. How Chaitra pulls Robin out of his 'comfort' zone and makes space for herself in his life forms the crux of the story line.
Rakul's character sketch comes as a welcome relief from the usual glam doll roles we see in such big ticket entertainers. Chaitra isn't the cliched heroine who plays damsel in distress. In fact, she is a crucial central character in the film. One of the best scenes in the movie is the one where she is being teased by a few guys and when Ravi Teja asks her if there is a problem. She replies, 'Problem e. Kani needi kadu. Nadi.' (There is a problem. But it isn't yours. It's mine).
Ravi Teja's lean look actually works wonders paired with his onscreen presence which is as riveting as ever. He is in his element playing the guy who'd go to any length to make himself comfortable. The sort who'd become a doctor just so that he can treat himself if anything happens to him. Ravi Teja holds the film together with his quirks. But all the lost weight makes him look a tad too old. The scene where he mouths a lengthy dialogue in English would probably be one of his best moments in the film.
Rajpal Yadav and Sanjay Mishra do a great job playing rustic villagers from Bihar. Director Surender Reddy's effort in weaving an interesting tale goes waste owing to a stretched screenplay that will leave the viewer bored to an extent. But his choice of Ravi Kishen and Kabir as the antagonists proves to be a wise choice as they give the necessary brutality to their characters.
The first half of the film is definitely the more enjoyable part due to being high on emotions, laced with elements of fun and has the necessary dash of villainy. However, the pace slows in second half and so does the entertainment quotient as the focus shifts to the action sequences. The music gives the film a nice mood with the background score giving some scenes an elevation. However, improper placement of the songs - especially the title track, an item song - proves to be a turn off.
