The third instalment in the Baaghi universe starring Tiger Shroff, Shradhha Kapoor released today. The story is based on Ronnie (Tiger Shroff) who goes after a dreaded terrorist group in Syria to save his elder brother Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh) from whom he is fiercely protective.
Ronnie – the handsome hunk whose only job is to magically appear whenever his elder brother Vikram is in trouble. From a second, you see him from bashing up the bad guys to going back to minding his own business.
But in a sudden twist, Vikram is kidnapped by a terrorist group called Jaish-e-Lashkar in Syria and Ronnie sets off on a rescue mission.
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 machoism, he did succeed in the action part but yet delivers a mindless entertainer.
On the performances front, Tiger Shroff’s perfect body and attitude make all the stylized action look real. However, he falls short in emotional scenes and comedy. On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor looks glam and brings in some good comic relief in the first half. But her character isn’t very crucial to the story and hence she doesn’t have much scope.
Ritesh Deshmukh has an important role, but there is no explanation about why he acts like a slow man-child and why he needs to be constantly protected. In fact, there are quite a few such loose ends in the story that make it far less convincing.
While the Syrian setting brings in a terrifying feeling, most villains are not taken so seriously except one Abu Jalal (Jameel Khoury). He looks the part and his performance is chilling. The film’s music is quite average but thankfully, there aren’t too many songs.
Overall, despite the good action performed in the film, it can’t rise beyond a weak script that doesn’t go for the kill. So, the film is strictly for Tiger Shroff’s fans and the rest of them can go and watch by keeping their brains at home.
