Director: Ahmed Khan
Distribution: Tiger Schroff, Shraddah Kapoor, Ritesh Deshmuch, Jackie Schroff.
Indian fans don’t like their heroes being beaten and kicked. If you’re India’s leading action star, Tiger Schroff, punches can take your movie from a hit-and-run. The actor told the audience how his sophomore students had been teaching the audience. year, and said he’s seen as a one-man army and that his fans can’t bear to be beaten by the college’s tough guys.
Baaghi 3 seems to be a direct answer to this idea. In the third iteration of the Baaghi franchise, the Tiger beats anything that can be torn or crushed – men, cars, tanks, helicopters, his shirts. He bounces off buildings, rises through the air, kicks three times and does destructive things with his hands and feet. But somewhere in between, by destroying helicopters and blowing up tanks, my detachment from my faith is broken; and believe me when I say that I have trained well in the Hindi cinema.
Tiger Schroff, who brought some bad guys to their knees in the Baaghi franchise, stands up to the nation, something the film never lets you forget. As soon as the tiger lands on his doorstep at the highest point of Baaghi 3, the rugged warlord wonders whether he will be defeated by the United States, Russia or Mossad.
If we clean up on the Baaghi 3 test scale, Baaghi 4 will need at least one army of three-eyed aliens to send the Tiger into space: Lone Vengeance. In fact, Baaghi 3 would make sense if the superhuman power of the tiger came out of a scientist’s test tube or because in his spare time he is a genius, a billionaire, a playboy, a philanthropist.
In any case, Tiger’s victory is due to the fact that director Ahmed Khan seems to have thought to the smallest detail and has absolutely nothing to do with the other aspects of this film. The story itself creaks with age – younger brother Ronnie (Shroud of the Tiger) always promises to take care of his older but shy brother Vikram (Deshmukh Ritual). Nervous Vikram was forced to become a police inspector in Agra because his brother promised him that he would always be there to help him.
Ronnie makes a difficult climb while Vikram is there to receive the medals. However, when they clean up the city, they fall under the influence of a local criminal PLI (Jayidep Ahlawat), which has ties to an organization similar to Syria’s ISIS, which, interestingly enough, is called Jayish-i Lashkar. Vikram is sent to deliver the IPL, but he is kidnapped and forces Ronnie to cross the country.
Before drawing conclusions, it must be said that Baaghi 3 has absolutely nothing to do with geopolitics or, for that matter, common sense. Ronnie’s being hunted by a nation and an army, but they’d rather be killed than shot first. The reason why people are abducted in South Asia and sent to Syria is because of the cellulose. The Pakistani character Vijay Verma has an accent that comes from Hyderabad.
The film’s jokes are as silly as the story. IPL stands for Indian Paeli Lamba and he loves riddles; Police Commissioner Satiš Kausik is called BMK, alias Bhookelal Moohpe Chatore – you get the picture.
Even the dialogues about parity and the five at least 30 years old are too old for today, as is the clumsy message about community harmony. As strange as a message, India bhai bhai is part of the same movie that shows extrajudicial executions and does the dishes of such a wise one-liner – Agar bad granted apne lieie granted rah sakte hain police waale kion nhah sakte? However, I assume that the damage will be limited, because Baaghi 3 is just as incompetent on this point as on any other.
Perhaps the actors, who are aware of the limitations of his film, offer him an addition – it seems that everyone likes to put it to music. The tiger is limited in his emotional scenes, Shraddah Kapoor can’t do much but has fun before the break and the bronze afterwards, the Nambi-Pambi ritual is repeated, and Vijay Varma and Jadeep Ahlawat sleep merrily and walk in their roles. It’s been 140 minutes, and luckily the tiger is kicking and stomping most of the time.
