Normally, I watch movies on the first or the second day of its release and thereafter, give my views. I watched Baaghi 2 on the 2nd day, but for this one I was holding back as I wanted to rematch a Hollywood oldie which I had watched a long time back ( I'll tell you the reason later). I don't want to waste anybody's time including mine and just to sum Baaghi 2 is a blatant copy of a Telegu hit Kshanam. Ok, so what Ahmed Khan the director had done differently is added more spices to the recipe for the Hindi audience and served it hot but garish. Let's look at the masala's ingredients.
We have a strapping Six pack abs Tiger Shroff who can merely act. Mimicking scenes from Ghayal ( Lock up scene in the police station enacted wonderfully by Sunny Deol) and Rambo movie in his own tantrums ( craved by masterly excellence from Sylvester Stallone ). Disha Patni the lady looks gorgeous but seriously need acting lessons or else people she will be vanished as they have overlooked Neha Sharma who started her carrier earlier than Disha (lookalikes). Manoj Bajpayee such a talented actor wasted and can be seen hamming on occasions. Randeep Hooda goes over the top and lacks authenticity of the charachter. Prateek Babbar is given a chance after long but misses out and is too loud and overacts. Darshan Kumar and Deepak Dobriyal wasted.
Ahmed Khan had a wonderful script copied from Kshanam he ruined by adding the extra masala. Dejectedly, this is the best he could offer with some scatterbrained music and catastrophic Madhuri's dance number by pokerfaced Jaqueline.
The Telegu version was subtle and more gripping as a thriller combined with some excellent acting from the star cast. In contrast Baaghi 2 even after lifting extract by extract is no match and fails miserably. Flipside Indian audience has made it in 100 crore club in the meanwhile. So whom I too complain.
Also, FYI the Telegu Movie Kshanam also seeks inspiration (appropriate to describe). Yes, friends this is also not the original script but the writers have used their brain and have carefully crafted the script. Kshanam is stimulated by the awesome Hollywood flick Bunny Lake is Missing and Gone Baby Gone. ( I wanted to watch Bunny lake is Missing again as I mentioned initially the reason for delay as could not get time to rewind)
But my humble request to all the Indian directors if you are remaking, plagiarizing getting inspired and what not, do it decently. ( Brutally Plagiarized)
