Baaghi 2 Story: Ronny gets a mysterious call form Neha four years after they parted ways, asking him to help her find her missing daughter. Things , however are not how they seem. Is Neha telling the truth? Review: We dive right into a world of rebels, drug addicts and vulgar corrupt police officers and are taken close ( a bit too close) to the hub of everything illegal ,Goa. According to the film, in Goa you are either a drug smuggling murderer or a shell shocked victim, there is no in between. Baaghi 2 makes an effort to create a story which is a good thing though I'm not sure how successful they are. The story gets carried away and in an attempt to look stylish and slick it ends up looking illogical and frivolous in places. Also I would like to know what was going on in the minds of whoever developed the characters in this remade version of Telugu movie Kshanam. There is a braid making , selfie clicking absolutely absurd police officer played by Randeep Hooda and a totally "high" and reckless Prateik Babbar. There is also a not so classy rendition of an old classic picturised on the brazen Jacqueline Fernandez. Despite all this the movie does manage to remain somewhat entertaining. The cheesy dialogues between the hero and heroine in the first film are not present here .. well maybe because there was hardly any romance between the lead pair in this one. There are a few twist and turns in the plot. Some of them are predictable but still bang on! We have Tiger Shroff taking down a whole army of trained men all by himself ,some say it's not plausible but if Salman Khan(the reel tiger) can do it then why not Tiger Shroff who looks much more believable. Tiger has improved his acting .. slightly and his new look is working wonders for him. Every time he comes onscreen or packs a punch the whistles just don't stop! Competition alert for the existing talent in the industry. Disha Patani is .. uh well she's okay. Randeep Hooda is .. uh well he does a pretty good job to be honest and Prateik Babbar , Deepak Dobriyal lend the necessary support. Manoj Bajpayee seems a bit out of place. This film is a one time watch because despite all the hooliganism, lunacy and blunders Baaghi 2 is all heart!

Mystery, thriller, romance, dance and action makes a typical Bollywood movie. All elements included in Baaghi 2 takes it a notch higher in fact its actually a preview to how talented Tiger shroff is. The movie rests truly on his shoulders. As we all are aware that he is capable of incredible action and dance sequences. Somehow he has always been underplayed with movies like Munna Michale, Flying Jatt etc. With Baaghi 2 Tiger Shroff brings in class action and good acting. He playes an Army Jawan special forces named (Ranveer Pratap Singh urf Ronnie). Thus the military hair cut changes his looks to a dashing young man and his sizzling abs add to his action hero image.
The movie falls short in many domains like direction, editing, screenplay, dialogues. It is quite flawed that one doesn’t feel the connectivity as well as the feeling of watching something new and fresh. Except for the action sequences the script and dialogues are dull nothing that we haven’t had heard before. Editing puts huge dent as different shots are clearly visible with poor connectivity from one frame to the other. Songs are dispensable and are too close to each other in the first half and why o why! Was there a need to take Jacqueline Fernandes to recreate Madhuri’s “Ek do teen”. The legendary song’s recreation is utterly bosh in terms of music and choreography. They should have put an original item song instead of a recreation. I feel sometimes song recreations in films are just to fasten the movie completion in absence of creativity. Some characters like Prateek Babbar are being wasted. He is a good actor and his negative role should have been enhanced more. The comic timing of Randeep Hooda gives us those laughter moments.
So watch this movie for Tiger shroff and its first half that goes well in creating the mystery and second half for Tiger’s action scenes. He is here and he has arrived. We surely will see him in amazing action movies in future that can blow our mind. Baaghi 2 will leave you asking for more of Tiger Shroff. The challenge while watching it is to ignore the rest. I will surely recommend this movie to go watch in cinema halls.

Baaghi 2 marks Tiger Shroff’s return to the big screen post the failures of A Flying Jatt and Munna Michael. Though his first 2 films set the box-office on fire and made him one of the hottest young stars across the country, the failure of his last 2 outings made people skeptical about his power as a box-office draw. While his competitors have dabbled in multiple genres since their debut, Tiger has mostly stayed in his comfort zone i.e. action. The film also marks the return of choreographer Ahmed Khan back to direction after directing duds like Lakeer and Fool & Final. Baaghi is an adaptation of Telegu movie Kshanam and Tiger would be hoping it turns out to be a hit. Sadly, the film is plagued with multiple issues which never let the audience stay invested in the story or characters in particular. Tiger Shroff tries very hard to salvage the film but is let down by a poor script. The film starts off with a kidnapping which brings our army man Ranveer Pratap Singh into action as he’s contacted by his ex-girlfriend to help look for her kidnapped daughter. You will want to know why she has contacted him after all these years and why she isn’t telling him the whole story. Too bad for you, you will have to sit through the whole 144 minutes of the film’s runtime to get to the bottom of the plot. The film is filled with unnecessary subplots which serve no purpose to the film. Baaghi 2 also includes some real-life incidents which serve as an over the top politically correct acknowledgments to some institutions. The film is filled with clichéd dialogues about the army and the police and it will make you wonder whether the script was written in the 90s. I am still wondering why Prateik Babbar was even in the film. Randeep Hooda and Manoj Bajpai do what they do best, shine in an otherwise bland film and both actors do great with whatever little material they have been provided. Randeep Hooda as the hippie Inspector does go over the top sometimes, even in the scenes where it’s not required. Tiger Shroff performs the action scenes quite well and in some scenes you see him try really hard but the script doesn’t allow him anything else rather than flexing his muscles. Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff look good on screen but a film is much more than that. Disha Patani is again unable to survive the first half of the film and it will make you wish she signs her next project in which she gets to feature for the whole length of the film. Baaghi 2 will surely do better at the box-office during its initial days and it all depends whether the audiences can look aside from the flaws, that is the only for the film to score big at the box-office. Rating- 1/5
