After the disappointments of Munna Michael and A Flying Jatt, Tiger Shroff resumes work with Baaghi 2. It is the indirect result of the huge surprise success released in 2016. On the cast, Shraddha Kapoor is replaced by Disha Patani. But it's mostly the supporting cast that has something to impress with Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda, and Prateik Babbar.
With Ahmed Khan at the helm (whose last work is to have produced Ek Paheli Leela), Baaghi 2 wants to start an action franchise. Forget the nice shameless plagiarism of The Raid for the first part, this second opus promises more action, more explosions, more bad guys and more big differences for a Tiger Shroff who after 5 films still has not learned to change genres.
So is the trailer up to the hype created by producers in recent days? Will the film regain the success of the first opus, or even do better? Let's try to know a little more about the trailer:
Tiger Shroff continues his momentum. He is a hybrid cross between the physical and the dance skills of Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan. Just like Salman, the young "actor" always thinks that to give emotion to his sentences consists in speaking lower, at the limit of the whisper. Fortunately for him, Tiger has a certain sympathy and is really committed to having credible action sequences. Will he be able to save the film?
Yes, Baaghi 2 seems to have impressive action sequences. Yes, it has incredibly charismatic side actors. But is that enough to hide the indigence of a story that is nothing more than a vulgar excuse to glorify a hero in "one man army" mode? Disha Patani seems completely transparent in her role as a damsel in distress. Anyway, nothing is expected of her, except to be a beautiful eye candy waiting to be saved by our muscular hero.
Finally, it seems that Tiger is trying to express anger. But even with his haircut he still looks like a young child stuck in a body of a hunk. In short, Baaghi 2 could be less indigestible than the first. The sequence of the helicopter will have at least something to entertain us. The film indeed seems so over the top that if it is not a great action film, it will surely be an involuntary entertainment.
