The third installment of Tiger Shroff's hit franchise 'Baaghi' is out. Watching the film certainly is not convincing enough as it will probably lead you to many questions that obviously go unheard and unanswered.
Tiger Shroff aka Ronnie has an elder brother Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh) who is surprisingly a police officer. Ronnie is very protective of his brother and can go to any extent in order to safeguard his life and that's the main subject on which the whole plot of the movie revolves around.
When Vikram goes to Syria for some paperwork (yes, he goes casually to Syria for just some paperwork), he gets abducted there and that is the only twist in the movie that the makers have already given away in the trailer. Ronnie, who cannot see the slightest of the trouble of his brother (who by the way is a cop himself), then heads to the country for a rescue mission and goes against a whole terrorist group Jaish-e-Lashkar alone. Yes, a single man with so much machismo that he decides to take on against some men who are armed with big weapons and are very dangerous. But, being the hero, who can defeat Tiger? Right?
Will he be able to save his big brother or not is the story what follows? No, we are not going to give away the ending no matter how predictable it is!
Shroff is quite decent in his role and considering this is the genre where he shines the most and this is the only genre in which he has been working on since his debut, Tiger shines in all the action-packed scenes. However, he seems lacking in certain emotional and comical sequences.
Shraddha Kapoor gives you some comical relief only if some ill-formed swear words are your thing. Except that, her character has been given the least importance and thus, Kapoor does not get a chance to shine on the screen.
Riteish Deshmukh plays his role with utmost sincerity but we have a question that why did he say yes to a role like this? He is a police officer but for some reason is a slow man child. The reason is probably opened for audience's interpretation as they have not given us any. Also, how did he get into police despite being like that? Unanswered!
The only person who manages to give chills is Jameel Khoury as the main antagonist of the film Abu Jalal. He seemed totally appropriate for the part and wowed us through his performance.
All in all the story is too unconvincing on so many different levels. We did give the liberty to them of being over the top considering that it is a Bollywood movie but it is just too much.
We liked the fact that songs are not too much in quantity but we do not like that all of them are recreated versions of some or the other song. Writing is weak but the action design is quite impressive, points to director Ahmed Khan. Camerawork misses the average mark and even the CGI is too weak.
So, unless you are a diehard Tiger Shroff fan, you can gladly give 'Baaghi 3' a miss.
