Back in 1998, director Ram Gopal Varma released Satya – an underworld crime thriller – which went on to become a huge box-office hit and won six Filmfare Awards and four Screen Awards.
Now, exactly fifteen years later, Ram Gopal Varma has release the first look of the second installment of Satya, called Satya 2:
While the first film starred Urmila Matondkar and Manoj Bajpayee, there is no news yet on whom the sequel will star. But news reports have it that they are all newcomers.
Writing about the concept behind Satya 2, Ram Gopal Varma reveals, “If Satya was a story of a man who came in 1998 and shaped the then existing underworld, Satya 2 is about another man who comes in 2013 to reinvent the underworld. To that extent I would say this is a futuristic film not in terms of science fiction but in terms of the fact that there’s no precedent for the protagonist of Satya 2. He starts a new underworld company based on his study of the mistakes of all the earlier dons and also on the ways he develops to deal with the modern day policing methods.”
