The Baaghi trailer was launched in Mumbai this evening amid cheering little fans of young stars Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor, and we were as impressed with the trailer as the little karate kids present in the auditorium. Tiger Shroff looks and feels like a new action star is born! That feeling is much more in Baaghi than in his first film Heropanti, which was like a glimpse of Tiger. Baaghi, coming two years after his first film and with the same banner, is like ‘coming of age’ for Tiger in Bollywood. He will definitely be taken very seriously as an action star after Baaghi! And his idol Hrithik Roshan sure will have ample competition to fear now.
Shraddha Kapoor, too, has done some good action in Baaghi. But apart from that, we think she is just a damsel in distress. And guess what, in the trailer, there is just a sneak peek of the kiss between Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor – the kiss they were so comfortable shooting. To see more, you gotta hit the theatres the moment it releases on April 29!
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Baaghi is directed by Sabbir Khan, who had also helmed Tiger’s debut film Heropanti. From the trailer of Baaghi, we could see that Sabbir has managed to get out a lot of good talent from Tiger. The director also confessed that they had to raise the level of action in order to match Tiger Shroff’s killer potential!
And killer it is that he is seen playing in Baaghi, from what we saw. Tiger trains in Kalaripayattu in Baaghi, the shots of which reminded us of the 36 Chambers of Shaolin movie. But what Tiger Shroff can do, no one else can – as Shraddha Kapoor said. His action is mindblowing and audiences will lap it up! With Baaghi, Tiger Shroff will emerge as a huge action star in India – or shall we say, from India? Since most youngsters these days are heading straight to Hollywood while their predecessors just talked about it.
But the villain in Baaghi, the man who falls in love with Shraddha’s character and kidnaps her, is as strong an actor if not a physical match to Tiger. Also, at the heart of the action is a love story. So, this movie has a lot to offer and will provide wholesome entertainment to viewers, we feel. Watch the trailer of Baaghi here – we are sure you shall hit the Replay button after seeing it once!
