Tom-Yum-Goong Ong Bak The Karate Kid Bloodsport et al

I do not want to write another word, methinks the title of this review is sufficient to suggest the long and short of it. However, I must write something sizeable for IMDb to publish it . So here it goes.

Tiger Shroff flaunts his impressive martial arts skills in this unimaginative and highly unoriginal action movie. There is no depth to any character and everything conveniently revolves around either action sequences or cheesy romantic angles.

The viewer doesn't have a clue why the story progresses the way it does . If the script is weak and worn out so is the screenplay.

However, there is a silver lining in this all-the action sequences. The movie is this respect is a homage to Chinese martial arts cinema.

Given he fact that I do not expect mainstream Bollywood to dish out original strong stories, I abstain from commenting further and would advice you to watch the movies mentioned in the Title of this review to gain further insights on the issue.

Tiger Shroff should look for some other profession.

Okay, So where to start from.

Story - 1/10 (full of cliché, unrealistic and cringe-worthy settings, romance and drama).

Acting - 0/10 (Okay, this is my favourite part. HOW IN THE HELL is Tiger Shroff an actor ? His acting is as good as a wooden stick. Goes to show that how big impact can Surname make in bollywood. And let's not talk about Shraddha Kapoor, literally same attitude and acting in every movie. You can cut out her scenes from any other movie and paste in this movie, you would never notice the difference).

Fighting scenes - 3/10 (Now some people are saying that this movie did good at what it was supposed to do. Not really. It was average at best.)

Overall - 1/10 (The movie is full of clichés, VERY VERY cheap romance and songs, every other person showing off their pecs and abs. Tiger Shroff should really look for some other profession. There are countless number of struggling actors who can act million times better than him. Only positive thing in the movie is fighting sequences, which aren't as good as people are saying. Average at best.)

"Mind-Boggling Action Meets Threadbare Storyline"

The posters and trailer of 'Baaghi' gave a firm idea of what to expect from the movie - limitless action and some breath-taking visuals in the backdrop of a stereotypical bollywood romance.Indeed,it is.

A mock-tail blended with 2004 Tollywood release,the Prabhas starrer 'Varsham' (Earlier remade in Tamil as Mazhai starring Jayam Ravi in the lead) and reknowed Indonesian martial arts flick The Raid::Redemption(2004),garnished with pinches of Tezaab(1988),36th Chamber Of Shaolin (1978) and The Karate Kid (2010) this Sabbir Khan movie is a mixed bag of excitement and dread as it suffers hardly due to its clichéd storyline that's based on the age old template of virtuous hero up against the evil villain.

The reason for a so-so experience is evident - lazy handling of the screenplay and relying entirely upon Tiger Shroff and his ability to pull off action sequences with ease and perfection.The screenplay by Sanjeev Dutta turns a roadblock in a smooth cinematic experience and had some more care been taken in handling the screenplay better by compromising unwanted comedy tracks and vomiting hackneyed romantic sequences,the movie could have been an instant cult action classic from bollywood,given the perfection in handling never-before seen breath-taking action sequences.

The action choreography is top-notch and undoubtedly the best from Indian cinema in quiet a long time and even compatible with films from the west.The park-our sequence,the climax fight etc were particularly brilliant and deserves special mention.

Tiger Shroff is a revelation as far as bollywood action films are concerned and it must be admitted that he along with likes of Vidyut Jamwal has raised the standards of action flicks from India that was struggling hard to find a bankable action star after Akshay Kumar who did some impressive works in his initial days in bollywood.

Cinematographer Binod Pradhan can be proud of the fact that he could capture the beauty of God's own country,Kerala brilliantly may it be the visual splendor of the snake boat race,the enchanting backwaters or the lush greenery of paddy fields in Kuttanad.Still,as a keralite I must admit the fact that the slang used by keralites in the film is far from original and the sets erected during the market fight sequence too was exaggerated and hostile to kerala.

The name Julius Packiam have become synonymous with thrilling background scores and here too he did his part well utilizing the enthralling single 'Get Ready To Fight' composed by Pranay Rijia.The songs by Amaal Malik,Manj Musik and Meet Bros were good and choreographed well.

Tiger Shroff looked convincing as the rebellious lover and was brilliant in handling action sequencs with perfection reminding of eminent martial artist specialists like Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais.Still,there was room for improving his acting skills which I guess he will,in films to come in the future.The fact that he has gained huge support from the viewers was evident by the big numbers in for the show,including a good number of families.Shraddha Kapppor didn't have much to perform than looking over-cutish which is a cake-walk for her.Shifu Shaurya Bhardwaj was impressive as the martial arts guru and mentor of Tiger.Sudheer Babu as the antagonist did his part well.Sunil Grover couldn't shine in the role of Shraddha's father.

Overall,Baaghi is worth a try if u can cash in some breath-taking action sequences and exquisite visuals of kerala and Thailand.
