Plot[edit]

Krishna Dev “KD”, an SP of Andhra Pradesh CID in Visakhapatnam, works in the Homicidial Intervention Team (HIT). He is sharp in solving crucial cases, and is in a live-in-relationship with Aarya, who works in the woman welfare association. One day, KD is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a woman named Sanjana. The team finds through a forensic report that Sanjana’s body parts, except her head, were present in the crime scene, and the other body parts belong to different women. They also find that there was an extra tooth mark on Sanjana’s neck.

Along with his teammates, Abhilash and Varsha, KD interrogates Sanjana’s roommate, Ranjitha, who tells that Sanjana frequented a pub. KD and his team arrive and interrogate the staff, but they do not find anything. KD travels to Sanjana’s village and after meeting her father, he finds her childhood photos with her friends. He finds that one of the child in the one of the photo, has an extra tooth, and that his name is Raghav, who is now working in Visakhapatnam. Suspecting Raghav, KD returns and searches Raghav’s house. He also finds that the shoe’s imprint matches Raghav’s shoe, thus implying that he is the killer. KD finds Raghava and interrogates him, who denies being the killer and does not reveal anything.

It is later revealed that the person, who almost shot Vikram Rudraraju in the first film was actually his senior Vishwanath, who is now dead. Sanjana’s case invites sharp criticism from the people and they demand justice for Sanjana’s death. At night, KD receives a video and learns that Raghav was at Kakinada at the time of the murder. He also finds that Raghav was not revealing anything in order to protect her fiancèe. Learning that Raghav is going to get killed in an encounter, KD manages to save Raghav and bring him back to prison. KD arrives at the prison to meet Raghav, but finds him dead, thus implying that he was framed by the killer. KD finds Ranjitha and Aarya’s photo in his car, which implies that they are the killer’s next targets. The killer also challenges KD to prevent them from getting killed.

The next day, KD and his team finds that the hand, which was present at the crime scene, had a transparent mark, used by the pub as an entry fee. He also enquires about the girl, Tanya, and also learns that she went missing few months ago. Aarya tells KD that Tanya used to work in the women welfare association, where she is working. KD learns that Sanjana, Tanya and a deceased girl, Pooja (whose case was handled by Vikram in the first film), used to work in the same association. KD and Varsha search the house of the association’s president, Jhansi. They learn that Jhansi had actually framed her innocent husband, Ram Prasad Koduri, a carpenter, for alleged assault charges, as the latter learnt about her affair with another man. Ram Prasad became distraught, and committed suicide.

Meanwhile, KD learns that the killer has abducted Aarya. He soon finds about a dental clinic printed in the newspaper, and learns that Aarya, along with the other victims, had visited the clinic. KD heads to the clinic and finds that the clinic’s painted walls actually contain various other body parts of the victims. KD is stabbed and tied to a chair by Ram Prasad’s son, Pawan Kumar Koduri, who is actually Ranjitha’s boyfriend. Kumar reveals that he became mentally distraught by his father’s death and had killed Jhansi, in retaliation. He later began to kill the women that joined the association, as it was responsible for his father’s public humiliation and tarnished reputation, based on false charges. Kumar proceeds to kill Aarya, but KD’s pet dog, Max, attacks and mauls him. KD unties himself and kills Kumar, thus, successfully saving Aarya and solving the case. After some time, KD and a pregnant Aarya, get married. They are visited and congratulated by KD’s replacement for AP HIT, Arjun Sarkaar, at their reception; hinting that HIT: The Third Case, will be based on him.

Reception[edit]

HIT: The Second Case received mixed reviews from the critics.[3]

Balakrishna Ganeshan of The News Minute rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote “Sailesh Kolanu’s HIT 2 is one of the best-written Telugu films in recent times, with each character, scene, and dialogue having relevance to the story”.[18] Arvind V of Pinkvilla rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote “The thriller, executed with aplomb by Sailesh Kolanu, wants to be a consummate whodunit, in the sense that it shifts its focus away from who committed the crime to what are the killer’s motives for committing it”.[19]

Manoj Kumar R of The Indian Express rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote “HIT 2 is a significant improvement over the first iteration. One can only hope that Sailesh fills in the gaps in his storytelling and becomes a more refined filmmaker with HIT 3”.[20] Neeshita Nyayapati of The Times of India rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote “The film delivers what it promises when it comes to the gore and taking the HIT universe forward”.[21] Rotkim Rajpal of India Today rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote “HIT 2 is a middling thriller that caters only to Advi Sesh but doesn’t do justice to its inherently engaging story”.[22] Sakshi Post rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and termed the film as a “gripping thriller” and wrote, If you are a fan of crime thrillers, you would surely love this. Watch it for Adivi Sesh.[23]
