Baadshaho Review: Script Analysis
The script of this film is been written by very famous writer Rajat Arora, whose scripts are enough capable to make some big numbers at the box office. It wasn’t the same case with Baadshaho. Rajat Arora, who has always been famous for giving fantastic movies, failed this time to create any magic with this film.
Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Gabbar is back, The Dirty Picture, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! Kick are some of his memorable films. Sadly, Baadshaho fails badly to even come close to any of the above-mentioned films. The script is so amateur and confused that you will feel that the film has nothing to show you except the main cast in it doing worthless things without a reason. From the dialogues of the film to the story, it is extremely boring and unimpressive.
Baadshaho Review: Star Performances
In an ensemble cast film like this, which is filled with the superstars, it becomes difficult to take about one particular performance of an actor. In Baadshaho, where one just can’t find out the script as that’s the weakest part of it, you just can’t blame the failure of such a film on one actor’s shoulders. If you have to find a good reason to watch this without a scripted film, then Ajay Devgn is the only reason to bear it. His dialogue delivery makes you feel good and gives you the reason to watch the film. I won’t say that Ajay Devgn gave an amazing performance, but yes, he gave full justice to his role. He is one of the major reasons to bear the film.
Coming to the performance that comes close second following Ajay’s work is of Emraan Hashmi. His cool avatar may attract the masses and he looks quite cool and playful in his role. There is nothing too deep about this role, so you’ll get focus on him as there’s nothing else better in the movie. Talking about the Esha Gupta’s role, it looked like she’s playing same roles again and again. There is no difference that you will admire in Esha’s role from her previous films.
The role of Vidyut Jamwal looks very powerful and dashing, but sadly, it fails miserably after some starting scenes. There is nothing much to like about his role. I personally liked the way Ileana D’Cruz gave justice to her role. There is nothing extraordinary for her to make an impact in front of big superstars like Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, but she played her role quite decently.
Baadshaho Review: Direction and Music
The direction of Milan Luthria, who’s famous for directing big hits like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai and Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara, failed to reach the expectations of the audiences. Even though his direction is fine, but due to the sad script, you won’t be able to tolerate anything about the film. You will find many glitches after every 10-15 minutes of the film. It looks like that the makers were not serious about making this film and took the audience for granted. Coming to the second half, it was a disaster in just one word. The movie is too stretched in the second half for no reason and there’s no story to watch out in the second half.
Coming to the music of the film, the movie’s background score is really impressive. There are some songs in the film that are already topping the musical charts like ‘Mere Rashke Qamar’ and ‘Socha Hai’. These two songs are way better than the whole movie.
