Movie Review: Baadshaho | Badshaho movie review – Bollywood News in Hindi

Generally, calamities and tragic events play an important role in producing many movies like World War, 1992 Mumbai riots, 2002 Gujarat riots, East and West Germany feud, 9/11 etc. But surprisingly, keeping in mind the post-independence dark period, very few films have been made on the Emergency. Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, which released 12 years before Indu Sarkar, which released in July this year, made a film on the subject. Badshaho is a political film but it depicts a terrible aspect of this century. But more or less, the film is an action adventure film inspired by real life stories. So, will this film turn into a thrilling film or will prove to be a horror like Emergency, let’s review.

Badshaho is the story of a group of robbers who try to rob a truck full of gold. This story is from the period of Emergency of the year 1975 when the government was taking possession of the entire property of the royals of Rajasthan. The year 1975 has been declared a state of emergency and the government has targeted the royal families of Rajasthan, alleging that they did not declare their wealth after the secret purse ended in 1971, so their property would be taken over by the government. . Geetanjali (Ileana D’Cruz), a royal princess, is arrested. His palace is looted and his treasury confiscated by the government which is taken to Delhi. Geetanjali wants to stop this legal plunder of her money and hence she asks her boyfriend Bhavani Singh (Ajay Devgan) for help. Bhavani enlists a team of miscreants for the task, which includes the bubbly Dalia (Emraan Hashmi), the drunken flawless Guruji (Sanjay Mishra) and Geetanjali’s sexy loyalist Sanjana (Esha Gupta). Under the orders of Major Sehar Singh (Vidyut Jamwal), a mission is assigned to intercept and rob the truck carrying Gitanjali’s treasure. They have a distance of 96 hours and 600 kilometers of open desert. How the gang of gangsters succeed in their mission, it is known only after watching the rest of the film.

Badshaho begins on a great note. The opening party sequence doesn’t look that significant but its relevance is revealed in the later part of the film. So you should not miss its opening scene at any cost. Soon after the setting of the story, the miscreants are presented in a different style. The looting starts just before the interval. But after that, the film manages to keep the audience hooked with its dialogues, drama and direction. The two scenes that stand out are the chase sequence of Dalia and Sehar and how a group of miscreants plan to steal a truck full of gold. Watching this sequence and how it is shot will surely surprise you. Interval is a very important place and the twist in the story comes here and opens which takes the film to a different level. This madness persists even after the interval. Dalia would be commended for infiltrating the police station with the armored truck. However, the film is confusing and ends on a casual note. There is a lot of smoke in the scenes, and it becomes difficult to know what is actually happening.

Rajat Arora’s story is interesting. Rajat Arora’s screenplay is effective in the first half but becomes overwhelming in the second half. Rajat Arora’s dialogues are classy and add a dash of entertainment to the film. Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, The Dirty Picture, Kick, Gabbar is Back and now Badshaho, Rajat really takes the film to a different level with one-liners. Milan Luthria’s direction is simple and he presents the proceedings of the film without making it complicated. He understands that it is a strong story and hence it should have the power to pull Indians. And in this case he wins. But like the script, the direction also goes awry towards the end.

Ajay Devgan gives first class performance. His character is not afraid of death and is ready to take on every challenge. Ajay plays his character well and suits his character very well. Emraan Hashmi looks very cool and it is great to see him in such a strong, ‘Chhichhore’ role, and this role will get him the first place in Bollywood. But the desire to see his funny side in the second half also remains unfulfilled. Ileana D’Cruz looks like an aristocratic queen in trouble. She presents herself very well and easily manages to get into the first half. Esha Gupta looks confident, but alas she doesn’t have much to do. Her character isn’t really well established, like who is she and where did she come from? Had her character been more sexy and attractive, she could have been even better. Vidyut Jammwal delivers a fine performance but gets lost in the presence of many great performances. Sanjay Mishra gives the best performance from all the actors. He plays his character and speaks dialogues quite gracefully and with style. Sunny Leone looks hot as always. After Neil Nitin Mukesh’s Sanjay Gandhi avatar in Indu Sarkar, Priyanshu Chatterjee (Sanjeev) in Sanjay Gandhi’s avatar in this film becomes useless. Denzil Smith (Rudra Pratap Singh) and Sharad Kelkar (Duranjan Singh) look great.

Songs do not play some good role in the film. Two out of the three songs are played in the background – ‘Mere Rashke Qamar’ and ‘Hoshiyaar Rahana’ – and both of them are foot-tapping. ‘Piya More’ is very good and well shot. Jon Stewart Eduri’s background score is a big highlight of the film. This adds to the thrill of the film.

Sunita Radia’s cinematography is terrific. The barren land of Rajasthan has been shot very well. Payal Saluja’s costume is noteworthy, especially the one worn by Ileana D’Cruz. Shashank Tere and Saini S Johari’s production designs are authentic and absolutely accurate. Arif Sheikh’s editing is improvised, while Ramzan Bulut, Javed and Ejaz’s action is decent.

Overall, Baadshaho is a package of great dialogues, amazing visuals, skilful direction, great performances, thrilling action and tension packed drama. The film is bound to grow over the weekend at the box office and will also gain on weekdays due to the post-Eid celebrations. If you are a fan of thriller, action and masala movies, then you must not miss this movie at all.
