ProductionEdit

In September 2013, RPM productions began working on a sequel to the successful 2005 film Jithan, with newcomer Rahul brought in as director. The script was written by Vincent Selva who has directed the first one. The team tried to bring in actor to play a parallel lead role, but were unsuccessful in their attempts.[2] The film subsequently progressed throughout Chennai. Srushti Dange has been confirmed as the heroine for Jithan 2. The film was on the verge of completion in July 2014, with all portions apart from the songs finished.[3] The team began post-production work in late 2014 and targeted an April 8, 2016 release.[4]

ReceptionEdit

The film received negative reviews from critics. Sify wrote "Generally, even a poorly made movie have some kind of positive aspects to talk about but Jithan 2 is a nightmare, which we want to quickly erase from our memory".[5] Times of India wrote "Jithan-2 involves a ghost and is billed as a horror movie, but the only thing that haunts us after seeing the film — and might even result in sleepless nights — is an unending stream of questions."[6] Rediff wrote "Painfully slow, drab and immature, this horror comedy has you yawning right from the start."[7]
