Every Character has a unique Appeal:
MSG-2 is a great mix of gripping storyline, heart-throbbing action, superb background elements, and amazing musical compositions. Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan lights up certain scenes with His unabashed panache.
While the story progresses, he evokes the humanitarian values in uncivilized tribal folks, saves them from binge-drinking, superstitions and violent patterns of the jungles. When unfavorable and evil-forces try to stop his mission to reform the tribal folks, he fights them like a one-man army.
Apart from Guruji, His daughters, Honeypreet Insan , Amarpreet Insan and son-in-law, Dr Shaan-e-Meet & Rooh-e-Meet Ji Insan, have also shared the big screen. While Guruji initiates the humanitarian endeavors, they march behind Him like soldiers. They lead the volunteers as commander-in-chief of Dera’s welfare wing. Despite being their debut-film, they have given an amazingly flawless performance that fascinates the viewers.
Arpit Ranka and his co-actor Kaynat Toor has impressed everyone in negative role of Azgar and Chabuki. They have justified their gray-character with a rough-n-tough dialogue-delivery and body-language. Babru and Babri, who are also debutante, have given a fair performance.
