After a pathetic attempt to connect this film with its predecessor, the story shows the still shy and insecure Surya (Ramesh), work as an assistant manager in a place that's not even mentioned. As per his father's last wish, he ends up buying a house worth crores for just 50 lakhs. As expected, the house is haunted and Surya experiences the presence of a spirit through the usual furniture shaking, portraits dropping and glasses shattering symptoms. It doesn't take much to figure out that Srushti is the ghost. Unsurprisingly, the second half of the film dwells into her backstory and how she became a ghost. What happens at the end and whether Ramesh gets his investment's worth forms the crux of 'Jithan 2'.
Painfully slow and dragging, the film takes its sweet time to establish the basic story line. The makers have aimed to deliver a flick that provides the chills of a horror film as well as the usual gags from comedians, which is the trend right now. Unfortunately, what's delivered is a half baked plot which doesn't do any justice to its horror tag nor provide any lighter moments for the audience to crack a laugh.
Jithan Ramesh, even after being a few films old, still lacks skills in basic emoting and considering it's a horror flick where there's so much to emote, what he gives is a rather forgetful and dull act. Out of no where, Srushti is made to dance as a ghost. Such scenes are plentiful in this flick which looks like it has been made just for the sake of it. Music is below average and Srikanth Deva has tried to scare the wits out of the audience by using loud background score which is actually more irritating than horrifying.
'Jithan 2', overall has failed to deliver in even one department. There is barely any positive aspects in this film to nitpick and it's safe to stay home than to watch this horrible film that tries to be a horror film.
