What’s particularly disappointing about this film is that even the dialogue has a recycled feel to it, although it’s the work of Rajat Arora who has powered many a mediocre film with his clap-trap lines. 15 years ago Baadshaho might not have been an awful film, but today it feels sexist, formulaic and completely outdated. It’s a waste of both time and money. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five.

The weakest part in this so-called heist film is the heist itself. In fact, it’s one of the easiest heists in cinematic history where the people in charge of protecting the gold truck are the most clueless. The authorities get hold of everyone except the most obvious suspect. Baadshaho has too many ordinarily written characters jostling for whistle-worthy one-liners for 136-minutes. Eventually they run short of the steam and Baadshaho becomes a rehashed ‘90s story with some gloss and a lot of disappointment.

Because it’s the old masala entertainment genre, we sit back and enjoy a few familiar guilty pleasures — the item song (Sunny Leone shaking it), the ‘seeti-maar’ dialogues (the deep-seated misogyny in a few make you cringe, even as you hear, without a shred of surprise, bunches of young men guffawing), the cheerful absence of logic (what’s that), and coherent plot points.

On the whole, BAADSHAHO is a nice package of great dialogues, amazing visuals, efficient direction, superlative performances, exciting action and tension-filled drama. At the box office, the film is bound to grow over the weekend and it will also benefit on weekdays due to post-Eid celebrations. If you are a fan of thriller, action and masala movies, you shouldn’t miss this one.

On paper, Baadshaho may have seemed to have the merit of a Hollywood heist thriller like Ocean’s Eleven. This is perhaps why Ajay Devgn even agreed to be a part of this mutli-starrer, which attempts to make immoral con men look good. But the execution offers zero novelty. For a heist-thriller to work, the moves and movements of the crew should have been calculated and executed to precision. Instead, here you have buffoonery and indulgent character introductions If you’re an action junkie who has no loyalty to any particular actor, this could be your big-ticket ride.
