Baaghi 3 Review
Director: Ahmed Khan
Starring: Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Jackie Shroff, Ankita Lokhande
Story: Anand Shankar
Dialogue: Farhad Samji
In the third instalment of the Baaghi franchise, Tiger returns as Ronnie, as does Shraddha Kapoor as his lady love Siya. Ronnie goes on a one-man mission to Syria to save his elder brother, cop Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh) who has been kidnapped by an Islamic terrorist organisation while on an assignment there. In the third iteration of the Baaghi franchise, Tiger is in full form beating up anything and everything that can be broken or shredded — men, cars, tanks, helicopters almost everything. He bounces off buildings, treads on air; delivers triple roundhouse kicks and does devastating stuff with his hands and feet. The rebel Ronnie who breaks bones, teeth and jaws of the street side taporis to begin with becomes all rolled into one against the might of the dreaded Islamic terrorist Abu Jalal (Jameel Khoury). Bombs, explosions, landmines: nothing can stop him from wreaking a vengeance. There are ample acrobatics on display, slow-motion shots,
deafening explosions and lethal punches in BAAGHI 3. The film lacks in script wise which is one of the big problems with BAAGHI 3. Technically the film is top notch, Cinematography by Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran is outstanding, he captures the scenes brilliantly. Editing is also crisp by Rameshwar S. Bhagat. Production values is top grade. The music of the movie is good.
Performances wise Tiger Shroff takes on the entire onus on him, he is very good, he expresses his body language through action like no other, Ritiesh Deshmukh plays his role with full conviction and emotion. Shradha Kapoor does her part well. While Anikita Lokhande does well. Vijay Verma and Jameel Khoury give a chilling performance. While others add good support.
Director Ahmed Khan throws in every trick in the book to make ‘Baaghi 3’ an action entertainer with elements that highlight his leading man’s brute force and deadly machismo. Tiger Shroff, who is clearly one of Bollywood’s most bankable action stars, packs quite a punch in the high-octane action scenes.
