Baadshaho kickstarts with a historical background of Rani Geetanjali, played by Ileana D’Cruz while taking you through a series of incidences that change her life forever. This bold, sexy, and beautiful Maharani will surely make your heart skip a beat whenever she appears on the screen. Sunny Leone’s dance performance is whistle worthy, and that’s the only song which will entertain you till it ends.
Geetanjali is arrested for hiding a huge pot of gold behind a secret door, which is later confiscated by the government out of a personal rivalry. To give Geetanjali her entire Amanat, Bhawani, her old bodyguard teams up with Emraan Hashmi (Dalia), a part-time lover-boy and full-time chor, Esha Gupta (Sanjana), who does this out of a favor to Maharani, and Sanjay Mishra (Tikla), a lock-breaker, join the bandwagon. These thieves come up with an amazing plan, which is further interrupted by a police officer Durjan Singh, played by Sharad Kelkar. To make their theft a bit difficult, Indian army officer puts Vidyut Jammwal to a task, further making their journey more miserable.
The entire story revolves around a dog and the bone game, who wins the race with a weird climax will leave you thrilled.
Baadshaho will give you all 1970s feels; there’s action, khajana, a villain, corrupt officials, a hero, and a plan to get along with the gold. Bold dialogues will keep you hooked till the last frame, but this slow film has nothing else to give you apart from a predictable storyline. The actors have done a pretty well job, but this one could have been better with a strong plot. Spectacular cinematography and great sound design make this one a good celluloid experience.
We give Baadshaho 2.5 stars with a kink! Brownie points to Sunny’s performance.
