Yes, it’s the best day of the week for me, Friday and it brings us to the Honest Review of Baadshaho.
This film is based on some real life incidents that happened during emergency ie from 1975 to 1977. Baadshaaho is directed by Milan Luthria and written by Rajat Arora, and this duo has earlier entertained us with films like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara, Dirty Picture etc. Here we see Ajay Devgan, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D Cruz, Vidyut Jamwal, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra in pivotal roles. The music of this film is handled by Ankit Tiwari, John Stewart and Tanishk Bagchi.
This film is a typical Milan Luthria masala entertainer. By the way, Baadshaho and the previous 3 films Mr Luthria has directed , have been based on historical events (Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara and the Dirty Picture). The trailer of this film had created a lot of anticipation. However, as the film starts, it seems to be a little slow, but gradually it gains momentum , brings interesting twists in the story, one after the other and leaves the audience amazed and applauding. The dialogues looked outstanding in the trailer, but they could have been better used in the film. Ajay Devgan once again has left the audience spellbound by his performance. Emraan Hashmi has done full justice to his character and seems to be quite lovable in the film (I loved him!). Ileana D Cruz for the first time is seen in a character with multiple shades and boy, she has handled it brilliantly. Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jamwal have done a good job, though I would rate Vidyut better for looks than acting. Sanjay Mishra is funny as always, though I feel he could have been used better in the film.
The action sequences and stunts of this film will leave you on the edge of the seat. The stunts are designed by a German action director , Ramazan Bulut and I have to say that its been a while after which that the audience has gotten to see such stunts !
The music of the film is being loved by people, with mere Rashqe Qamar and Piya More topping the charts.
This film is not to be missed and deserves 3.5 out of 5 stars !
