Baadshah for fans. Not so ‘Bad’shah for others.
What is “Baadshah” about?
Baadshah (NTR) is the son of Ranjan (Mukesh Rishi) who works for a mafia don, Saadhu Bhai (Kelly Dorjee). Baadshah’s shrewdness push Saadhu in to shell and finally he joins hands with other dons, Crazy Robert (Ashish Vidyardhi) and Violent Victor (Pradeep Rawat) to eliminate Baadshah and his family. On the other hand, Baadshah with the help of Janaki (Kajal) and her father Jai Krishna Simha (Nasser), a police commissioner tries to foil Saadhu’s terrorist attack plan. Rest of the story involves several twists which also forms the actual story.
How is NTR?
Baadshah irrespective of what its result is and how it is going to perform at box office, is the dream of every NTR fan. Vaitla seem to have done his homework on how fans love NTR to be on screen. His looks, styling, body language are all too good. Importantly, his body shape looked consistent through out the movie. His acting and dialogue delivery is immaculate as always. He had also shown the depth of his comedy timing once again after Adhurs.
What about Mahesh Voice Over?
Mahesh’s voice over come at various junctures in the first half of the movie introducing the characters and keeping audience engrossed in the story. This will definitely be an added value to the movie.
How is Srinu Vytla direction?
The story first of all has no novel element. It looked like an amalgamation of several of his past movies. Like every movie of his, the screenplay and dialogues did the trick. He concentrated on few tracks i.e., Brahmi track and MS Narayana and delivered his best through them. He also touched the emotional side of fans with episodes like Justice Chowdary and NTR dancing for his grand father’s hit songs. Screenplay and dialogues by Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan deserves a standing ovation. They are the pillars of the movie’s outcome.
What about Kajal Suhasini, Brahmi and others ?
Kajal Agarwal got a role with substance in this movie. She played Janaki who is an interior designer in Milan. She has got some fantastic one-liners and her Banthi philosophy evoked good laughter. Her dubbing is too good but makeup looks odd at some places. Suhasini is good. Brahmanandam as Inspector Padmanabha Simha, M.S. Narayana once again gets a superb role as film director Revenge Nageswara Rao (resemblance to Ram Gopal Varma and Rajamouli) are the main assets of the movie. Vennela Kishore’s comedy helped in the first half. Navdeep is good as an evil cop but had little scope for action. Hero Siddharth did well in his small yet crucial cameo role. Nasser, Ashish Vidyardhi, Pragathi are good. Jayaprakash Reddy, Brahmaji, Tanikella Bharani, Master Bharath, Chandra Mohan and Thagubothu Ramesh are wasted in insignificant roles.
How is Music, Songs and Dances &other departments?
Thaman’s Rerecording added value to several scenes. All the songs are chart busters and will enthrall fans in theaters also for the excellent taking. NTR’s dances are too good in Rangoli Rangoli song.
Several cinematographers worked for the movie. Guhan however did the major part. The difference in their styles is not visible on screen, The entire screen in bright and colourful. Editing by MR Verma could have been better especially in the first half. Art work by AS Prakash is good. Production values are very high.
1. NTR’s performance & Telangana Accent in Second Half
2. NTR’s Dance in Rangoli Rangoli song.
3. Comedy tracks by MS and Brahmi
4. Dialogues and Screenplay
5. Justice Chowdary track & NTR dances for Sr. NTR songs in Sangeeth.
6. Mahesh Babu’s voice over.
1. First half is not up to mark
2. Not so fresh story
3. Kajal’s Make up.
What about its box office prospects?
The first half of the movie is strictly average. There is a lag towards interval which irks the audience a bit. But the second half is thoroughly entertaining. As every Srinu Vaitla’s movie, comedy and one-liners take the center stage.These things will rope in the families and A centers crowds repeatedly. The movie is a right bait for Nandamuri fans who are longing for a big movie. We will have to wait for see the extent of success!
