Raja Sen in Mumbai

It had to happen, didn't it?

After flogging every possible and potential cash-cow, the once great director Ram Gopal Varma has returned to the scene of his finest mastercrime to threaten us with a sequel.

We open with tacky visuals -- snakes, crows, wedding-video type cutout text and photographs -- informing us how things have changed since Varma made Satya 15 years ago.

Dawood Ibrahim has retired; Chhota Shakeel stopped killing; Abu Salem is in jail; Chhota Rajan is believed to have become a goverment agent; Arun Gawli has gone into politics... In other words, Mumbai's underworld is dead.

But as an ominous, all-knowing voiceover reminds us -- while eagles fly and the camera inverts itself for no reason -- the underworld can never die.

This is then Satya redux, the story of a man named Satya who enters Mumbai with aspirations of making it bloody.

Played by Sharwanand -- who looks like a young version of Mahesh Manjrekar and speaks like, well, Arunoday Singh -- the character doesn't do much to inspire confidence in Varma's latest 'comeback.' The scenes shown, even the ones where the camera doesn't turn upside down, look unbelievably hacky, like the director is spoofing himself.

It looks Department-level bad.

Will RGV prove us wrong? Let's hope he can.
