In 1971, Tara is now a goods supplier to the Indian Army cantonment and lives with Sakeena and Jeete, who soon leaves for Chandigarh for his college studies. One day, Tara is contacted by Lt. Colonel Devendra Rawat for help in supplying Indian soldiers with weapons as a skirmish is taking place with the Pakistani soldiers at the border during the Third India–Pakistan War. After reaching there, Tara is spotted by Iqbal, who orders an explosion at the border, leading to many of the soldiers getting captured. Jeete returns from Chandigarh to find Sakeena in shambles. Upon learning about Tara’s disappearance at the border, Jeete leaves for Pakistan against everyone’s wishes to rescue his father.
After arriving in Pakistan, Jeete meets Tara’s close friend Gul Khan, who helps him secure a job at Kurban Khan’s hotel, which supplies food to the prison where the Indian soldiers are being held. Jeete meets and gets close to Kurban’s daughter Muskaan, who continues to support him upon learning that Jeete came there to rescue his father. Jeete infiltrates the prison only to get captured and discover that Tara was never captured. On the other hand, Tara resurfaces in Punjab and reunites with Sakeena, revealing that he fell into a stream and was rescued by a Bakarwal tribe, but went into a coma. Upon learning that Jeete is in Pakistan and his communication has stopped, Tara decides to head to Pakistan and extract Jeete from the prison.
Landing in Pakistan, Tara meets Gul Khan and learns about Jeete’s capture. Iqbal beats up Jeete and gets him publicly humiliated by falsely accusing him of assaulting Muskaan, who is forced to lie to protect her father. However, Tara arrives and escapes with Jeete after defeating Iqbal and his army. Yahya Khan, who is the President of Pakistan and the Commander-in-chief of the Pakistan Army, orders Iqbal to capture Tara within 72 hours. Tara and his team contact Sakeena, but are chased by Iqbal’s men, eventually getting separated. Following a series of combats and chases, they finally reunite and are on their way to leave Pakistan when Muskaan and Kurban Khan shows up with their family, who are planning to leave for Balochistan.
Kurban Khan asks Tara to accept Muskaan as Jeete’s bride, to which Jeete and Tara both happily agree. However, Iqbal captures them in an ambush and kills Muskaan’s brother Farid. The next day, Tara fights Iqbal and his army singlehandedly, escaping with everybody in a battle tank.

He states, “We had made Gadar but the audience made it a Blockbuster. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive about whether we would do justice and continue the legacy of the first part.” The film’s director Anil Sharma revealed how he convinced Deol to return, stating, “When I narrated Gadar 2, Sunny was a little hesitant because he felt Gadar was a blockbuster and didn’t want to meddle with it. But I requested him that the entire nation has been requesting a sequel and we should respect their emotions. After many calls, he finally agreed to hear the story. When we sat down for narration and finished it, he had tears in his eyes. That’s how the journey of Gadar 2 started.”

Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama gave 4.5/5 stars and wrote “Gadar 2 is old-school desi entertainment at its best. Sunny Deol returns to the big screen with a vengeance… He is as ferocious as ever. The patriotic flavour coupled with tremendous recall value will make it a huge money-spinner. Gadar 2 lives up to massive expectations… Has it all: drama, emotions, action, two beautiful songs [from the first part] and the hand pump sequence, of course. Anil Sharma makes sure he packs every ingredient on the shelf to create a big-screen entertainer.” Anuj Kumar from The Hindu wrote “It is not as provocative as the original as driver Anil Sharma seeks to take a middle path. Perhaps, it feels like that because the socio-political atmosphere outside the theatre has become much more dramatic and shrill than what it was when the original released in 2001. Still, it is good that Sharma has toned down the jingoistic tone.”
Monika Rawal Kukreja of Hindustan Times wrote “Gadar 2 does falter in terms of story and its pace, though it brings back the mass entertainment and that can surely make it a paisa vasool watch.” Anindita Mukherjee from India Today gave 3.5/5 stars and wrote “Gadar 2 supersedes expectations, as it successfully tugs at your heartstrings. And there’s Sunny Paaji to do all the heavy-lifting (pun intended). Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express, who gave 1.5/5 stars and wrote “What we can confirm is that Sunny paaji can still snarl effectively, and that dhai-kilo-ka-haath has residual potency. We can also confirm the reappearance of a hand-pump. Umesh Punwani of Koimoi gave 1/5 stars and reviewed as: this is a blatant misuse of fans’ emotions taking it for granted to deliver such a horrendous product hoping it’ll work only based on nostalgic factors.
