Review: Baaghi

Had ‘Baaghi’ been an out-and-out actioner, it just might have turned out to be a cult film but Director Sabbir Khan (‘Kambakkht Ishq’, ‘Heropanti’) chooses to please the masses by making a typical commercial potboiler. While there is nothing wrong in that, ‘Baaghi’ should have come with a warning for those who were expecting more action; instead the first half is a lame love story which begins when the boy spots the girl talking to rains.baaghi-review-647_042916022210

Both the leads can barely emote and even if they could, the script and direction are terrible. Within the first five minutes, you know what is in store for you but it isn’t the predictability which is the problem with ‘Baaghi’.

The only saving grace are the few action scenes most of which are in the climax. Tiger Shroff looks unconventional and is too raw to be called an actor in his second outing too but he definitely makes for a good action hero. He performs martial arts with so much ease that you might as well want to see him grow as an actor in the days to come. Shraddha Kapoor, saddled with a clumsy role looks okay and gets no scope to act; something her contemporaries are doing.

Watch it only if you have to and if at all, watch it for Tiger Shroff- "Abhi toh isne start kiya hain."

About Abhirup Dhar

I don't watch movies... I live them! Let me introduce myself. Abhirup Dhar was born in Kolkata and is still being brought up in India. A banker by profession, he is filmy to the core and is passionate about reviewing movies and writing. He likes to live on his own… he likes to be blunt, sarcastic, famous, infamous, confident, over-confident, moody at times… he likes to be himself. He is imperfect because perfection is boring. His love for movies dates back to his childhood days when he studied in a boarding school. A three-month Winter Vacation every year… and he made sure he watched as many movies then. Parents thought it was a phase... he knew it was Passion and he knew it back then itself. The craziness to watch movies on the Big Screen began during the last two years of school when he literally bunked to town so that he could catch up with the new Hindi Movie releases. Some thought he was plain crazy. He confirmed it was Passion... yet again. The hard fact is that not always can you walk a path you are passionate about. You have expectations to fulfill and Life to be made. But Life gives you chances and you have to grab them. So... here is he... your friendly critic who will be giving you his Verdict every week so that you can decide which release is worth your moolah and which is not! See you at the Movies!
