MSG-2 THE MESSENGER is a 2015 Indian faith-based action film written by and starring religious leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who is also credited as co-director, co-editor, and songwriter. It is a sequel to MSG: The Messenger, released earlier in the same year, with Singh reprising his role as Guruji, a spiritual leader on a quest to save an Adivasi tribe. It was released worldwide on September 18, 2015, followed by the Tamil and Telugu versions on October 1; however, a controversy surrounding the film’s allegedly insultive portrayal of Adivasis led to several states banning it.
As for the first installment, the box office gross of the film is disputed, with a large difference between the numbers from box office estimates and the much higher numbers given by the film’s producers. Reception was similar to its predecessor, with critics considering it propaganda and a very bad film overall. It was followed by two films, MSG: The Warrior Lion Heart and Hind Ka Napak Ko Jawab: MSG Lion Heart 2, both featuring new and unrelated story and characters; Honeypreet Insan, Singh’s daughter who co-stars in MGS-2, directed and starred in both alongside her father.
The film begins with Guruji rescuing innocent beings and doing noble deeds. The devotees offer sweet saying that these sweets are in celebration of the government declaring the neighbourhood savages as terrorists. Army is being deployed to put them at bay, but after losing their men to these Ace Archers, the Army is planning missions to throw these savages out. Guruji did not like this idea of declaring them as terrorists. According to Guruji all are humans and no inhuman treatment is justified, even if they are behaving like animals, that doesn’t make them animals and every person has the capability to be reformed with love and affection. In-spite of life endangering events on Guruji from the savages, Guruji decides to fight for savages. A police inspector named Arjun attacks the savages and gets retaliated badly and saved by Guruji. Arjun goes to meet Guruji and Babru also comes to meet Guruji. Guruji also saves the lives of Tibru tribe’s head Babru’s son and gains his confidence. Babru comes to know that Guruji has all the signs of their Aadi Guru, the deity worshiped by them, since so many years. And that’s how, Tibru tribe takes on to the path of civilization being by Guruji, leaving their age old practices of hunting and killing raw meat. Suddenly a call for the sacrifice comes from head of 16 tribes naed Ajgar. When Guruji asks them to refuse for sacrifice, he comes to know that these people are against civilized people and it is Ajgar who saves them from civilized people. On asked upon why they hate people living in cities, Babru states that these people were successors to Eklavya’s tribe the renowned Archer who gave his thumb as Guru Dakshina and still could not get respect for his tribe. His forefathers told him not to worry and during Kalyuga there will be a man who will bring respect to our tribe. On Guruji’s insistence, these savages refuse to offer sacrifice. On hearing this, Ajgar is raging with anger and picks up the whole tribe as his hostage. Guruji saves them. Soon Ajgar realizes, Guruji is no ordinary man and also the Army’s run for his life might meet success, his own tribe seems to be against him, as the Army was about to enter the area and take their lives, as they were declared as anti social elements, terrorists and it seems wise to surrender his life to the Army rather than risk the entire system and tribes. He asks for pardon from Guruji for his deeds and runs away saying that he is going to surrender himself, but army take him as a hostage, Guruji reaches the spot and fights the entire army single handedly. Suddenly Durjan Singh comes and tell Guruji how he tried multiple efforts right from influencing the minister to instigating the army into believing that savages are their biggest enemies, and even trying to take Guruji’s life, and failed miserably because of Guruji. It is then the Army realizes that Durjan Singh has been misleading them and that this Guruji is the same man “Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan” who has been providing blood for indian army, eyes to the old parents of army officers, even kidneys to the needy army personnel, they ask for pardon to Guruji and Durjan Singh once again defeated in front of Guruji’s noble initiatives.
