Directed by Sabbir Khan, Baaghi is garnering major attention for its out-of-the-world action sequences and applauding acting by the two fresh faces. Action is the best element in the whole movie; from hand to hand battle to Kalaripayattu, the movie has got it all.
A terrific Tiger Shroff and a beaming Shraddha Kapoor: enough for the Thrills with a pinch of Romance!
The movie revolves around Ronny (Shroff), a rebellious and under-disciplined son, whose father sends him off at his friend’s martial arts academy in Kerala. A bit of a rule-breaker, he meets an over-talkative, bubbly and jumping-jack girl named Sia (Kapoor), whose is an upcoming actress. Both of them meet- talk-fall in love! (Simple!!)
Now comes the second half with an antagonist: Raghav (Sudheer Babu), who is much obsessed than in love with Sia. The story is now all about the nasty evil plans of Raghav and Ronny-Sia’s true love’s survival.
Baaghi Review: Script Analysis and Direction
After Heropanti, Tiger Shroff came back to the screens with Baaghi, and has, to an extent, impressed the audience with his macho acting and action sequences. Although the movie is one big of a cliché, a one-sided love becoming a dangerous love between a vivacious affair.
The script is a bit weak, and fails to establish any foundation for the characters. Comedy has been delivered by Sunil Grover and Sanjay Mishra’s characters, which provides a bit of chuckles and laughter. The first half is quick and entertaining, but the second half is quite predictable and filled with action. SO MUCH ACTION!!!
The movie is shot extensively across Kerala and Bangkok, and contains a refreshing cinematography. An agile camera-work complements the action sequence.
Baaghi Review: Star Performance
Tiger Shroff, the highest selling asset of the movie, manages to re-capture his Heropanti attitude, but only when action scenes are shot, and boy he slays them..! His weakness is emotional scenes.
Shraddha Kapoor dons Ek Villian, Yet again!! Her over-excited, chirpy attitude can be sometimes called as over-acting. She acts well, but had her talent been utilised more, the movie would have been to a different level. Also, though limited, her action sequences are worth mentioning!
Sudheer Babu, the lead antagonist, smashes the role with his drool worthy abs and average acting!
One of the cutest comedians, Sunil Grover, did a great job at cracking silly jokes as Sia’s father. Sadly, the makers forgot him in the second half. Sanjay Mishra appeared on the screen as a blind cabbie in Thailand. A funny one, we must say!!
Baaghi Review: The Last Word
Baaghi has been sold out as a one and all Action flick, and can be watched for awesome gruelling fights, engaging comedy and the unstoppable love between Ronny and Sia!
