Critic Reviews Baaghi

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-3/10
Everybody in this drama is just acquainted with the language of punching their deterrents dead. The film relies entirely on potent (often senseless) action sequences. Shroff does a stand-up job of executing hand-to-hand combat moves, but there’s little else to look forward to. If you are looking for an all brawn and no brains feature, then watch Baaghi. Otherwise, it is wise to duck this missile of a movie.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-5/10
This is by no means a terrible film but the actioner, that attempts to find support in a threadbare story, is far from riveting. The screenplay fails validate the cause of their rebellion. Baaghi blooms only during the fights but by the time the clock ticks towards the climax, you are exhausted. How much can you hoot for broken necks and crushed bones? You could try finding thrill in Tiger's kicks but the film has nothing more to offer.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-5/10
Packed into a frankly overlong 2 hours and 20 minutes, this flimsy plot makes room for way too many song situations squeezed between the impressive pow-wow scenes. Shraddha Kapoor, looking pretty and dancing well, is basically reduced to a damsel-in-distress caricature, aside from a few kicks and punches she's allowed to deliver herself. The film is powered purely by the sheer energy and the tireless spirit of its leading man Tiger Shroff, who's still raw when it comes to emoting but seizes your attention when he's flaying his arms and legs about the screen.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-4/10
Once again, director Sabbir Khan, the purveyor of moronic rationale as previously witnessed in Kambakkth Ishq and Heropanti, fashions a mindless action film scraping off Telugu flick Varsham and Indonesian action movie, The Raid: Redemption to tell his, hold your breath, modern-day Ramayana. 'Is Ramayana mein Ram marega,' announces the antagonist who knows no better.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4/10
Baaghi cannot be called a romantic action drama. It is merely action without reason drama. It comes with a cliched script of a one-sided love becoming the thorn in a rosy affair. What is weird is, the inclusion of the whole Karate kid style training angle in it. To start off, the script fails to establish its characters properly. Ronny does not have any background, he is just a rebel. Sia seems to smoking some substances which may cause her character

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4/10
All stabs at a stale plot are abandoned, as staler formula takes over: the good guy clashes with the bad guy over the ‘bubbly’ girl who dances, wetly, in the rain ( she loves ‘baarish’, see?), is saddled with a father who is more joker than responsible dad (played by TV comic Sunil Grover), and a mum and grandma who hover uselessly in the background. A couple of comedians show up and bumble around annoyingly, slowing the pace.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Mehul S Thakkar Rating-3/10
Overall, the film isn't a let down because of the output by all the actors. Tiger and Shraddha show no signs of playing their parts with any disbelief. Their chemistry is also appealing. But it is the shoddy execution of the story, which doesn't hold you throughout the film. It almost feels like the director tried to put in a lot of elements, but found it difficult to put it all together while editing the film.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Network Rating-7/10
On the whole, BAAGHI is a typical masala entertainer which scores high on action and performances from the lead cast. With focus on entertainment, the film is, without a doubt, the best action film to come out of Bollywood in recent times. It has all the merits to hit the jackpot. At the box office, it will be lapped up by the masses on the account of its masala quotient. Highly recommended.

  • DNA | Review By -Sarita Tamwar Rating-6/10
The screenplay is predictable and leaves behind an incomplete mark as the film progresses. Portions of Ronnie's action sequences are taken straight out of 36 Chambers Of Shaolin and The Karate Kid but they're too hurried and scattered to even register. Secondary characters are sketchy, incoherent and irritating (Sunil Grover and Sanjay Mishra). The music is a major letdown and hampers the pace.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3/10
Without a credible screenplay to hold it together, this 140-minute action film can only heap endless misery on moviegoers who detest meaningless bone-crunching. Watching an irate but purposeless combatant single-handedly demolish all his adversaries from Kollam to Bangkok is excruciatingly monotonous. The protagonist, an angry young rebel, is trapped in a script so fluffy that it can carry no weight at all. It moves only in fits and starts, and aimlessly at that.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-4/10
The saving grace is the exotic locales, from Kerala’s backwaters to Krabi, there’s plenty eye candy to soothe the sore screenplay. But you still have to deal with the ugly bones being broken in the 133- minute film. In short, The Karate Kid enters Bloodsport and appears in a hurry to become Ong-Bak without losing the essential Bollywood qualities. Baaghi shines only in patches.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7/10
'Baaghi' as a movie is not a classic by any standards, and there are some obvious flaws staring at your face. It also seems to be inspired by a lot of action-packed films that starred Bruce Lee and the ilk. But, even then, the credit goes to the director Sabbir Khan for getting the milieu right and making it a thrilling watch. Also, looks like he's given full freedom to the action director, the grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj (who also plays a significant role in the film) to turn most action scenes into a work of art.
