BAAGHI 2 – Movie Review

Baaghi 2 Review

After a long time, I am writing something… I thought to include all my interested fields and domain under this blog instead of just Technologies…

This post is about movie review of ‘Baaghi 2’.

I have interest in martial arts, and so love martial art action movies. Two action stars in Bollywood, Tiger Shroff, and Vidhyut Jhamwal which attract my attention. Selection of bad movies seems the problem with Vidhuyt. What may be the reason…he is not making his mark even though he has potential.

But Tiger is having internal/Industry links and support, but his movie like Baaghi 2 was not at all impressive, not due to his efforts but because of a very weak storyline. Let’s talk about Baaghi 2, I went with the high hope and lots of hungama about the success of the movie. But even after stellar performances and efforts by Tiger, Manoj Bajpai, Prateik Babbar etc. film is weak it seems…Hats off to Prateik for his stellar performance…

Scriptwriter tries to develop a very intriguing story but it seems all went wrong while screenplay. Introduction scenes of Tiger and Disha Patani were weak, it would have been made innovative and effective. The suspense in movie try to bind you but many unanswered questions are also their…I can’t divulge more as this is a suspense-thriller. Research or time does not spend properly during the creation of characters, example, a character of ACP (Randeep Hooda). I don’t understand the character of Randeep Hooda, why he behaves weird and openly use drugs, abusive languages even in front of his seniors? Another one, a constable whose face was not shown, an assistant of Randeep Hooda, this constable starts crying when Randeep ask any question to him? God knows why? and I feel it’s a kind of insult to Indian Police department upright officers.

It seems, after watching this film that everyone is dealing with only drugs in Goa. While watching you don’t understand where the story is heading. In the climax, we suddenly know that there is a dense forest near the city…the main villain has a resort there with helicopters (not one, more) and lots of foreign martial artists with lots and lots of guns and ammunition…. God knows what our intelligence agencies were doing. Director tries to give Rambo like feeling when hero put heroin ka dupatta on his hand. Lots of shooting/blasting/fighting happened in the climax…. which was not convincing but yes Tiger Shroff put’s his great efforts in fight scenes. Interestingly, police party and army etc. were just waiting outside of this dense forest…. again, God or director knows why? Hero, who is a martial artist, who beats 500-1000 people in the climax was easily beaten up by a very weak villain. In one of the last scene, very interesting shot, the hero was surrounded by 20-25 armed fighters….I was thinking that how the director will move forward from this point….Whoop, suddenly shot cuts and next scene starts…..after a few minutes, the director shows again that older spot where all fighters were scattered and dead….God knows how? Till that time, I had started searching for Exit door from that cinema hall….

As per reports, the movie is inspired by some south Indian movie. But my point is when you have invested so much money in it…. put some extra time also in research, character generation/creations etc. It seems that director wants to put everything in one movie i.e. Rambo, Ong Bak etc…. Just check commercials hits like Chennai Express, 3 Idiots, Munna Bhai MMBS etc…for screenplay….Like in Ong Bak they were aptly used Thailand culture/animals and embed fighting around it…as Indian, we have very rich cultural heritage…so can’t we create something interesting around it?

Suggestion for Tiger, dear you work hard but be alert on the selection of script. Just learn from Jackie Chan in this matter, he is the best inspiration for fighters in movies, not because he is a great martial artist but he knows the nitty-gritty of cinema and knows how to entertain cinema lovers.

 

Note: Views in this article are just a reflection of my thoughts as a viewer after watching this movie. I personally don’t want to hurt anyone/or movie business intentionally or unintentionally…
