Synopsis

A battle-hardened army officer goes in search of his ex-lover's child who is mysteriously kidnapped. Neha reaches out to the only person who can help her with her plight, Ronnie. He goes deep into the underbelly of Goa, facing off against drug lords, menacing Russian henchmen, and blood thirsty animals. Daring stunts, chase sequences, air strikes, bomb blasts and other large-scale action sequences will be done with a bona-fide, larger than life approach, truly making it a spectacle.Wikipedia

But any and all promise is ultimately short-lived, as the script comes undone in the end with a twist that is underdeveloped and underwhelming to say the least. It’s so lazy, in fact, that it’s not even true to the film’s own logic.It’s got its moments, but that’s all there is.

The trouble with a full-on masala film going in search of a plot is evident in the way the film unspools. The bare bones are borrowed from Telugu thriller Kshanam, but the fillings are all strictly Bollywood.

This remake of a 2016 Telugu thriller Kshanam, is an improvement on the generic Tiger Shroff action movie. At least the action is grounded in some emotion...

I suspect I will be reviewing Baaghi 8 in the near future. Perhaps by then, Hindi cinema will have moved on from believing that the Indian Army is composed of heartbroken college boys who decide to substitute women for country.

Baaghi 2’s plot is simple. It’s also a copy. And yet three writers were required to collaborate on its screenplay.

The best thing I can say about Baaghi 2 is it does have its moments of 'so bad it's good' gratification in Prateik Babbar's hammy dope head, the babyish wailing of a constable assisting Hooda and Tiger's bizarre boss, the guy could put caricatures to shame with his 'The war is over' solemnity.What a circus!

At 2 hours and 25 minutes Baaghi 2 seems a little too long. With better editing and a taut screenplay this one could have packed a stronger punch. Nonetheless, folks who enjoy mindless, stupid and impossible action could watch this film to kill time.

If you’re game for action and a fan of Tiger Shroff’s stuntbaazi, then you should give this film a shot.

Some movies are just made with the purpose of serving entertainment and Baaghi 2 is one of them. When we as the audience can enjoy something like John Wick (It is an outstanding film & I am not comparing, please consider this before bashing me) we should not have a problem with this one.

If you enjoy videogames where all your favourite character does is beat the opponents to a pulp then you will definitely like ‘Baaghi 2’. I didn’t. Obviously, I enjoy good cinema more than I enjoy a good videogame.

Baaghi 2 surprises you. It's not a well-structured film, and the story has many loopholes; the performances are over-the-top and the plot points convenient.

Baaghi 2 has abun­dant action but lacks in other ingredients of an entertainer. It has taken a flying start (because of great action, fantastic promotion and the Good Friday holiday) and will, therefore, keep its distributors safe. The producer, of course, has made a huge profit under-production.

Hollywood gave us Rambo and his ilk in the late 80s. Bollywood seems to be still stuck there. Baaghi 2 is pure homage to these bad action flicks. It's full of corny manufactured situations and characters, and dialog that make you choke on the cheese nachos. So bad, it's good.

Baaghi 2 is a few notches better than its predecessor, which is saying a lot. And the only saving grace we could argue is that Ronnie joined the armed forces to vent the rebellion born out of his failed love story, which in the narrative is taken for granted.

Baaghi 2 desperately hopes that slow-mo shots of the hero’s abs and his stunts, set against blaring background scores, can uplift a dull narrative. Unfortunately, the audience today is far more discerning than that.

Overall Baaghi 2 is a one-time watch film and you will surely enjoy it on silver-screen.

    There is a lot happening in these 140 minutes, and in an attempt to look intelligent, director Khan goes overboard with his hide and seek. The non-linear narrative helps him hide important story arcs from us, which when revealed make you go "wow", but the wowness only stays for a minute because the next wow factor is on its way. This is the reason why Baaghi 2 is not great. Some crisp editing and a faster pack-up would have made it a tighter and more relishable recipe. As it is, Baaghi 2 is engaging and worth a shot to quench your action genre starvation. TN.

    This is also one of the action centered movie wrapped around a loose script. The movie is full of waste kidnapping mystery and ended up with a disappointing climax.
    Great actors Manoj bajpai and randeep hooda didn't able to save the movie.
    Randeep hooda done a great job in character of police officer dressed up in jack sparrow like costume named LSD.

    Overall the movie is good for people looking for action but if u r looking for good movie this will be disappointing.
