Milan Luthria’s directed film ‘Baadshaho’ has been released in cinemas. The film is based on the emergency period of 1975-1977.
Story of the movie: The film starts off in the year 1973 in the deserts of Rajasthan with the introduction of Ileana D’Cruz as Rani Gitanjali Devi. This is followed by Emergency being declared during 25th June 1975. Back then, Gitanjali gets arrested and jailed for possessing a massive ancestral wealth, which the government takes under its sway. The government seizes the gold and decides to transfer it via road to Delhi in a truck with officer Singh (Vidyut Jammwal).
At the same time, Bhawani (Ajay Devgn) too gets jailed for a petty crime. This is followed by a flashback of events, which mirrors the past relationship that Bhawani and Gitanjali had shared with each other. Thus follows a ‘fool proof’ plan by Bhawani (at the behest of Gitanjali) in order to smuggle the priceless wealth to the Rajasthan border. The accomplices in the game plan include Dalia (Emraan Hashmi), Sanjana (Esha Gupta) and Tikla (Sanjay Mishra). The roadblock in their whole plan is in the form of the police inspector Seher (Vidyut Jammwal). What follows after that is a series of twists and turns and for this you have to watch the film.
Star Performance: Ajay Devgn and Esha Gupta delivered a brilliant performance. Emraan Hashmi is seen in a different style in the film. While, Vidyut Jammwal and Sanjay Mishra are fine with their performances.
Music Direction: The film’s music (Tanishk Bagchi, Ankit Tiwari) is decent with songs like ‘Mere Rashke Qamar’ and ‘Socha Hai’ already topping the musical charts. Also the background score is quite good.
Direction: The film’s direction is good as well as the camera work is awesome. As the film was shot in Rajasthan, its palaces and location are seen beautifully. The film story is quite weak, more work could be done on this. Good production could have made it a more bearable watch. It does not.
Watch Or Not: You can watch it once.
