Soch Nahi Aagey Baaghi
The cub of Bollywood is suave… Jawaan laundon ke dil ki dadhkan… Shraddha Kapoor… Decent music… Decent reasons for a regular cinegoer to sigh. Phew!
“Baaghi” is boom!, zap!, bang!, dash!, but it’s no flesh mere flash. The action packs a punch.
Ronny (Tiger Shroff) is a baaghi (rebel) sent by his male progenitor to Kerala, at his friend’s martial arts academy. He remains notorious here even.
Destiny makes him meet an age-exceeded teenybopper Sia (Shraddha Kapoor). Her character is similar to the character of any girl (at least what they show on Facebook).
Sparks don’t wait much to fly.
But! Beware! There’s Sudheer Babu playing the villain Raghav. He is in a one-sided love with Sia.
Now, Sudheer is the antagonist not Sudhir. So, why would the latter tell what happens next?
Baaghi: Story, Screenplay and Direction
Well! The plot is tepid and the characters are cliched. Shraddha is what she was in “Ek Villain“, Tiger is (a bit more rebellious) what he was in “Heropanti“, Sudheer is what you expect a baddie to be, the story is banal and the foundation is wafer-thin.
Honestly, the director’s (Sabbir Khan) “Heropanti” was a poor show and he doesn’t improve much here.
The screenplay is somehow bearable in the first-half, the second-half is somehow cringe-worthy. The comedy irritates.
Yes, the action is bang on. One star is just for it. From dishoom-dishoom to Kalaripayattu, it is drool-worthy.
Dialogues are poor.
Baaghi: Stars’ Performances
Tiger Shroff, after two years, in his second film, just like in his maiden film, is extra-ordinary in action and ordinary in any other scene.
Shraddha is fine in her limited action scenes but her over-chirpy nature got on my nerves.
The South sensation Sudheer is good.
Sunil Grover does well but his character is poorly written. Ditto for Sanjay Mishra.
Baaghi: Music and Other Technical Aspects
Music (Komail Shayan) is peppy but not hit.
Cinematography (Binod Pradhan) is lovely but there is no point in showing the antagonist’s big building for a number of times.
Editing (Manan Sagar) is not up to the mark.
Baaghi: Sau Baat Ki Ek Baat
“Baaghi” is what everyone expected. It’s not novel. But for the people who need cinema to live, this one is like ghar ki daal, we have to have it.
