Khon, the elephant of Kham (Tony Jaa) has been abducted and he fights to find him. Framed from the murder, Kham goes on to run, but with help from his alleged victim’s daughter, Ping Ping (Jeeja yanin) and bumbling cop Sgt Mark (Petchtai Wongkamlao) he evade Interpol, thwart LC’s plan and rescue his beloved elephant khon.
The film is sequel of International blockbuster TOM YUM GOONG. The film focuses on the action as much as possible in Thai martial arts. From start to end the film is truly an edge-of-the-seat entertainer that successfully encapsulates a rather poignant tale of undying love between a man Kham and his pet elephant Khon amidst extremely stylized stunts in 3D format.
Performance-wise, Tony Jaa is fantastic and does full justice to putting his life on the line as he effortlessly performs death defying stunts. Jeeja Yanin, Vismitananda, RZA and Marrese Crump and others are good. Director Prachya Pinkaew and action composer Panna Rittikrai have done good job. Cinematography is fair. Editing is okay. Production and technical values are good. Publicity in India is weak.
At the box office, the film has taken poor opening in both English (TYG2) and Hindi dubbed (HATHI MERA SATHI-2) version.
