While some say it has been superb and called it a complete entertainer, others stated the movie to be an average with a poor climax.
Reviews by the leading critics of Bollywood Industry
According to Meena from Times Of India, a heist thriller movie like Baadshaho should have calculated moves and movements. But this movie hardly offered any novelty and had ridiculous and soft introductions of characters. According to her, if you are not inclined to any 1 actor and like action movies, this is the movie for you.
According to Bollywood Hungama, Baadshaho is a nice package of all the elements, ranging from great dialogues, amazing visuals, efficient direction, wonderful performances, exciting action to engaging tension-filled drama. It is hopeful to grow over the weekend and show good performance at the box office. Bollywood Hungama recommends you to watch this film if you are a fan of thriller, action and masala movies.
Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV did not like the movie at all. The only thing he liked was the performances of Emraan Hashmi and Sanjai Mishra, which made the movie somewhat tolerable. But since there are too many people, the movie gets a little clumsy. The actresses just act as lifeless mannequins. Overall the movie was a little tolerable, nothing more.
Overall the movie received very mixed reviews. BOTY would recommend you to go watch this movie if you enjoy multi starrer action thriller films. Baadshaho is clashing with Ayushmaan Khurana’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan at the box office. Let’s see how does this clash affects these 2 movies.
