“Baaghi 3” Movie Review: High On Action, Low On Wit

Mohnish Singh |Mar 06, 2020

“Baaghi 3” is the third instalment of Sajid Nadiadwala’s action franchise “Baaghi”. The movie, helmed by Ahmed Khan, stars Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles.

Baaghi is undoubtedly one of the most successful franchises Bollywood has produced in recent years. The first instalment of the series hit theatres in 2016 and emerged as one of the highest-grossing movies of the year. The second instalment made its way into cinemas in 2018 and became an even bigger blockbuster. The third instalment of the franchise, Baaghi 3, hits the marquee today and is expected to open really big despite getting mixed response from critics.

Story: What all Ronnie (Tiger Shroff) has got in his life is his elder brother Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh). He is fiercely protective of him and can to go to any length if his brother in danger. On an unfortunate day, Vikram is kidnapped by a terrorist group called Jaish-e-Lashkar in Syria and Ronnie sets off on a mission to rescue him. Will he be able to bring back his brother alive? Will he be able to stand in front of a deadly terrorist group and fight alone? To know this and much more, watch the film in the theatre closest to you.

Critical Analysis: In Baaghi 3, you will see everything that the Baaghi franchise is supposed to have: mindless action, insanely beautiful locations, elaborate song and dance, and how can we forget the shirtless hero, showing his chiselled body and abs, taking on an entire army of goons. Filmmaker Ahmed Khan fills his latest directorial with every cliché, but fails to support it with a likable story.

Though jaw-dropping action sequences and deafening explosions keep you hooked for some time, you find the film unintentionally funny in absence of taut and crisp writing. The makers spend so much on creating an action film that looks stylish, but nobody seems interested in investing in a good story.

Talking about performance, Tiger Shroff is good at what he does best: action. He looks convincing in every action scene that is filmed on him. However, when it comes to emotional and comic scene, he falters and how. We all know that to be emotional or comical is not his forte, but a little work in that area will not harm him. As far as Shraddha Kapoor is concerned, she does not have a prominent part to play. You may wonder why was she even there. However, she is good in all the scenes she appears in. Riteish Deshmukh and Ankita Lokhande are just okay.

When an action movie is done right, it can be one of the most amazing experiences one can ever have at the theatre. But if they go haywire, you just wait for the moment to come out of the theatre and save your senses. Well, Baaghi 3 is one of those films.

Final Verdict: Baaghi 3 will appeal only to those diehard fans of Tiger Shroff, who do not mind if a film lacks story. All they are happy with is mindless action and deafening explosions. If you are one of them, well, you will watch the movie anyway. I am going with 2.5 stars.
