In 2016 released a film titled Baaghi starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor. The film was directed by Sabbir Khan and was a super hit at the box office. The makers of the film decided to make Baaghi a franchise and Baaghi 2 released in 2018. While Baaghi was a good-entertaining film, Baaghi 2 wasn’t a great watch. Now, this year, the makers have come up with Baaghi 3.
The movie is about two brothers, Ronnie (Tiger Shroff) and Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh). Since childhood, Vikram is weak and Ronnie has been protecting him. When they grow up Vikram gets a job as a cop, but it is Ronnie who beats up the bad guys and Vikram takes the credit for it. For some work, Vikram is sent to Syria, but there he gets kidnapped. How Ronnie saves his brother, takes the story forward.
Baaghi 3 is a remake of Tamil film Vettai. But apart from the basic storyline, there are not many similarities between both films. The screenplay of Baaghi 3 is disappointing. The first half is very dull and though the movie picks up well in the second half, it fails to keep us engaged till the climax. Also, director Ahmed Khan fails to connect the emotional angle of two brothers. The only time we feel emotional is in a scene, in the second half when a supporting character decides to die to save others.
The action is good, but after a point, it looks repetitive. Also, the setting of the film is so similar to Tiger Zinda Hai that in many scenes it will remind you of the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer.
Talking about actors, Tiger Shroff is strictly average here. This movie offers nothing new for him, even the action he is doing is similar to his previous movies (apart from War). Shraddha Kapoor is there throughout the film, but unfortunately, the character written for her is so weak that she fails to shine. Riteish Deshmukh is totally wasted. The only time he gets the scope to perform is in the last 10 minutes. Ankita Lokhande is hardly there in the film; one more good talent wasted. Vijay Verma and Jaideep Ahlawat are damn good, and Jameel Khoury impresses us a lot with his performance as Abu Jalal.
Coming to music, the songs in the film are good. Dus Bahane and Bhankas are impressive, but Do You Love Me featuring Disha Patani fails to make a mark.
Overall, Baaghi 3 is an average action-thriller. The movie offers nothing great apart from a couple of good action sequences, that’s it.
