Creating upheaval yet again in the world of sci-fi fandom, Denis Villeneuve is back with the second instalment of ‘Dune’, an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel by the same name. 

With its captivating story and breathtaking visuals, Villeneuve has once again set a new high for the sci-fi movies. The first part successfully sets the stage by introducing us to the universe of Dune, Arrakis, and its people. Now, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats with anticipation of what is to come, ‘Dune Part Two’ takes us deeper into the fate of the reluctant hero Paul Atreides(Timothée Chalamet), who seeks revenge against the Harkonnens.

Chalamet’s brilliant portrayal of the role and his inner conflict is complimented by Zendaya’s compelling performance as Chani.
Standout performances by the supporting cast — Rebecca Ferguson’s Lady Jessica, Jason Momoa’s Duncan Idaho, Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, and Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan.

The story not only takes us through the journey of Paul Atreides and the fate of Arrakis and its people but is also a thought-provoking watch that takes the audience on a journey of understanding power, oppression, identity, and choices, thus leaving room for much introspection.The visual landscapes of the desert, spacecraft, and technologies take the audience to a world so unfamiliar yet somewhat familiar. The narrative is perfectly blended with Hans Zimmer’s stunning soundtrack which endlessly communicates as the story unfolds.
