Plot: The movie has a typical Bollywood plot which revolves around the love story of an army officer. In the opening of the film, we see Ranveer Pratap Singh alias Ronnie(Tiger) is a Special Force Army Officer in Kashmir. Meanwhile, we see Neha ( Disha Patani) is attacked brutally by two masked men.
Later, we see our brave, fit and uber-macho man Ronnie beat up the terrorists and establishes his nationalism in front of the audience. As a bonus, we get a scene in which the movie picks up steam and plot gets on track. Neha, the college sweet-heart of Ronnie, calls him from Goa and asks him for help after she is attacked. Her daughter Rhea, is also kidnapped who needs to be rescued by him.
Much efforts are put up in the film to establish Ronnie as a hardcore army man. The movie has a cookie-cutter approach to the audience as any other action film.
Movie Review: The movie can be fairly divided into two parts -one part for romance and other for action as a blending of these two is not visible in the movie. The hero (Tiger) appears to be a rebel in the movie.
The heroine(Disha Patani) is a helpless woman whose child has been missing and she has nobody to turn to, so she decides to take help of her ex-boyfriend and invites him to Goa.
While penetrating into the heart of underworld of drugs hub- Goa, the hero deals with the drug dealers, Russian ruffians, and uncooperative cops. Here, Tiger gets a full chance to perform stunts in the movie.
Baaghi 2 has some fabulous stars like Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hudda and Deepak Dobriyal, but their acting talent is underutilized in the movie. The best scenes of the movie are between the DIG (Manoj Bajpayee) and LSD (Randeep Hooda) as they share humorous conversations.
The dialogues are somewhat crisp and corny but due to the loose plot and unsatisfying screen-play, the movie is unable to cast a spell upon its viewers.
Our verdict: The movie is a one time watch overall, but if you are a fan of Tiger, Disha and action then only you should go to watch this movie. Deepak Dobriyal is the best performer in the movie but Disha’s character is infused with so much confusion that it diverts the attention of a viewer so watch this only if you want to see an action movie with the added spice of romance.
