Baabarr – Movie Review
Baabarr is a good movie, than what I expected. Ashu Trikha is old figure in industry but not having hit movies named to him as director. I believe this movie will definitely help him. First of all to view this movie you must have a taste of real life crime / political crime stories. This movie is talking about the story of underworld and involvement of police and political leaders taking UP (lucknow) in focus.
Movie is about Baabarr, who killed someone at a younger age to save his brother and then started moving on the road of crime. He became terror for common man, politicians, industrialists, other gangsters and even to police. SSP Dwivedi, an encounter specialist is given task to arrest or kill baabarr, where he faces the problems due to nexus of police, politicians & criminals. With the help of his corrupt police inspector Chaturvedi, Dwivedi uses another gangster and rival of Baabarr to kill him.
“I haven’t been promoted in 10 years, but also not got transferred” – this dialogue of Om Puri dialogue as SHO Chaturvedi reminds the interference of political leader and criminals in police system as his boss SSP was transferred because of an encounter of gangster.
Actor Soham Shah is playing the lead role with an expressionless face. But I think still he is better than many actors of Ramgopal Verma. Other co-stars like Mithun was good as SSP Dwivedi. Sushant Singh as Tabrej did a good job. I rate him higher than Soham Shah. Sometimes by his acting I feel he is really a gangster. Urvashi Sharma looked beautiful as girlfriend of Baabarr.
Last but not the least Om Puri was excellent. He was the actually the key player in story and maintained his excellence till end of movie. It’s a chance 2 days back I was watching his movie Ardhasatya on DVD. It was great to see him as a cop who want to fight against corruption in Ardhasatya, and as corrupt politically active cop in Baabarr.
You can watch this movie once. If you don’t like songs to interrupt the speed of movie, then your wish is taken care here. There is too much of Violence so under 18 are not allowed. I rate this 2.5 stars.
