“The action in the film deserves a standing ovation” - Ananya Bhattacharya, INDIA TODAY
A 23-year-old rebel, Ronny gets shipped by his father to the Kalaripayattu Academy in the quiet town of Kerala, where he wants him to learn to control his erratic temper. On his way there, he meets Siya, and chemistry soon starts to blossom between them. Things get complicated when Raghav, the popular kid in school, also falls for Siya’s charm. Time goes on, their paths diverge, and Ronny dedicates his time to mastering the art of fighting. When he learns of Siya’s kidnapping in Thailand, he races to her rescue. Lost in a big city, he relentlessly seeks any clue that could lead him to Siya’s location. His investigation will lead him to his old enemy, Raghav. This time, there’s no way he’s leaving without the woman he loves.
BAAGHI is the second collaboration between director Sabbir Khan and the very charismatic Tiger Shroff, who made heads turn with his athletic performance in HEROPANTI. He pushes the limits even further with this latest production. Training very hard for the part, Shroff has perfected his abilities by working with the best stuntmen out there. The months of preparation paid off as he brilliantly executes an endless series of impressive stunts in BAAGHI. And what can we say about his collaboration with the talented Shraddha Kapoor! Together, they tear up the screen. Khan gives us a picture that perfectly balances action, romance and drama. The fighting sequences are particularly abundant in this cinematic spectacle that is sure to lift Tiger Shroff towards the highest heights of stardom. Fantasia is always on the lookout for fresh talent, especially when it comes to martial arts. Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais have all impacted the festival in their own way. Today, it’s Tiger Shroff’s turn to leave his mark.
