Tiger Shroff is back as the one-man army and he doesn’t disappoint in this Ahmed Khan flick. His character is a mixture of those from the universe of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The action sequences also look like from the world of Salman Khan and the reason why the film managed to do well all over the world is that it gives you a chance to use your brains somehow, especially during the scenes where Tiger’s character is in the detective mode.

Baaghi 2 is about Ronny (Tiger Shroff) and Neha (Disha Patani) who were college sweethearts but couldn’t get hitched due to some family issues (the same old Bollywood stuff). A few years later, after Neha’s daughter is kidnapped, she asks Ronny for help who takes a leave from the army to help his ex. Unknown to him, influential people are involved in the kidnapping but he comes out as a hero (like every Bollywood’s main lead) and saves the girl. There are eccentric cops on his tail – Manoj Bajpayee and Randeep Hooda – along with those who have stakes in the bigger game. Do Ronny and Neha finally have a reunion or do the bad guys have the final say, watch Baaghi 2 for the answers.

The movie also features the once-mighty Prateik Babbar and the talented Deepak Dobriyal and has been shot mostly in Goa. However, Tiger Shroff’s mature acting is what makes this film worthwhile. He looks every inch the army man who others should fear and who would go extra miles to get things done in his favour. Thanks to the dialogues, he doesn’t have cheesy one-liners like he had in his earlier films and maybe that’s the very reason he is bearable here. Disha Patani is already a known face in Pakistan due to her presence in TVCs and with this film, she proves that she can be a film actress too. Randeep Hooda’s LSD is shown as a happy-go-lucky cop who loves to apprehend the bad guys and plays an important role in the flick.
