Movie review: Tiger roars again in 'Baaghi 3'
Fans as in a treat as the movie is packed with high-octane action and drama.
Baaghi 3 is a thrilling entertainer for action fans. With Tiger Shroff, Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles, the film is a typical story of sibling love.
Vikram (Riteish) and Ronnie (Tiger) are orphaned at a young age after their father (Jackie Shroff), who is a police officer, dies during an encounter with goons. But before his death, he asks his younger son Ronnie to look after his shy elder brother. Obeying his father's last wish, Ronnie looks after Vikram throughout his adolescence and keeps him out of trouble. Their father's colleague brings up the siblings.
Ronnie wants Vikram to follow in their father's footsteps and become a police officer. He cannot join the force as he has several police cases against him. Ronnie tells Vikram to be brave and promises he will help him carry out his job. While Ronnie single-handedly fights goons in the city of Agra, making it almost crime-free, Vikram receives all the credit for it. Following this, Vikram is sent on a major mission to a Middle East country. The biggest gangster in the city, nicknamed IPL, has been arrested in the country and Vikram has been given the task of proceeding with the extradition process. Ronnie once again comes to his rescue, convincing him that it's a simple documentation procedure.
Vikram then goes to the Mid-East destination but militants connected to IPL kidnap him. Following this, Ronnie takes Siya (Shraddha) and goes on a mission to rescue his brother. While there, they meet Akhtar Lahori (Vijay Varma) who helps them in the unfamiliar territory. Ronnie also meets militant chief Abu Jalal (Jameel Khoury) who offers him to help find his brother.
After a long sequence of thrilling action, Ronnie finally locates his brother in Abu Jalal's den. He rescues him, but in the process, gets stabbed in combat. Seeing this, Vikram musters courage and fights the militants to protect his brother, and also manages to kill Abu Jalal.
Besides the heavy action, Baaghi 3 also has several light, hilarious moments, especially when Vikram and Ronnie meet Siya and her sister Ruchi (Ankita Lokhande) who later marries Vikram.
Fans of Tiger Shroff are in a treat. They can catch their six-pack abs hero, with pumped-up muscles, performing super-heroic action scenes as he single-handedly destroys the most notorious criminal terrorist den in the world.
In the end, the film is about selfless love between siblings. If you want to call me a rebel, so be it, says Tiger in the last scene.
The songs in the movie are choreographed in a fun way to capture the light mood of the film.
