Baahshaho is set in the backdrop of 1975 when the emergency being declared. The move stars with the introduction of Ileana D’Cruz when she gets arrested and jailed. At the same time, Ajay Devgn too gets jailed for a petty crime. This is followed by a flashback of events, which mirrors the past relationship that Bhawani (Ajay Devgn) and Gitanjali (Ileana) had shared with each other.
Thus follows a ‘fool proof’ plan by Bhawani 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 which turns the course of the film in totality.
The story is written by Rajat Arora who previously wrote story like Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, The Dirty Picture, Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Doobara! Kick, Gabbar Is Back. But this he failed create those magic.
Ajay Devgn is one of the major reasons to watch the film. He is followed a close second by Emraan Hashmi, who looks his part to a ‘t’. He looks ‘con-vincing’ in his role of a thief who places friendship above wealth.
As for Esha Gupta, she does not have anything much to do. Her role looks as same or similar to her previous films. For those expecting the oozing the glam-quotient of the film from her will be tad disappointed. Ditto for Vidyut Jamwal, who, after doing initial rounds of action, seems to fall flat in front of his character. Then, there’s Ileana D’Cruz does a decent job in the film. The ever-reliable seasoned actor Sanjay Mishra is good on his part. Rest of the actors help the film move forward.
Milan Luthria who directed the movie, has done a decent job as always but the script of the movie is the reason for not to connect with people.
Final Verdict :
Baadshaho will have viewers watching it purely for the same, with an expectations of being treated with the duo’s one liners. We will give 2.5 stars out of 5.
