Srinu Vaitla's latest directorial venture Baadshah starring Junior NTR and Kajal Aggarwal in leads is an action masala entertainer and it has garnered positive reviews from film critics, who have praised NTR's performance, Srinu's direction and Brahmanandam's comedy as the main highlights of the movie.
Baadshah has simple story, but the presentation of the
subject on screen is superb and grand. Baadshah (NTR) is an
intelligent and aggressive guy, who works under international don
Sadhu Bhai (Kelly Dorji). His father Ranjan (Mukesh Rushi) is a
trusted aide of Sadhu and he operates a profitable casino in Macau.
How he rebels against Sadhu, when the latter plans to finish off
him and his dad, will form the crux of the story.
The movie has all the commercial elements to rock the mass.

What works in favour of the film, besides comedy, is NTR's
energetic performance. He has good screen presence and is in top
form. Kajal Aggarwal as the do-gooder, always ready with moral
science gyaan is fun to watch. Tanikella Bharani, Nasser, Navdeep
and Suhasini are convincing in their parts. Mahesh Babu's voiceover
in the opening scene is an added attraction and so is Siddharth's
cameo. Don't go expecting something new and don't try to analyse
and the film will entertain you, in parts.
Writer Kona Venkat has penned some interesting comic-one liners
and powerful punch lines, but that's not enough for this
much-awaited film to live up to the big expectations. Even though,
the famed director-writer duo have many hits in their kitty, it's
high time, they discover a new winning formula since all their
films are beginning to look alike.
Baadshah is a film that serves you with Seenu Vaitla
kind of entertainment using NTR and Brahmanandam in an effective
way. NTR has got a film with good Box Office potential after a long
gap. It's up to the star power of NTR and brand value of Seenu
Vaitla to take it further.
The story is no different than a usual Sreenu Vaitla film, but
it is highly entertaining despite glaring loopholes and cliches.
Sreenu stretches a simple revenge drama to the edge by greatly
relying on comedy and high-octane action sequences. Not only does
he succeed in this attempt, but also proves once again that his
formula of filmmaking is error-free.
Baadshah will please NTR fans and it is sure to mint
big money at the Box Office due to season advantage. Brahmanandam
and NTR comedy is going to be the major crowd pulling element for
this film. This film has potential to score a hit and it is up to
NTR's star power to take it to the next level.
Baadshah is a super feast for all NTR fans. A stylish
looking NTR and some hilarious comedy is a major asset for this
film. Go watch this film with your complete family as
Baadshah is a breath of cool air in this hot and humid
summer. A Must Watch.
Bramhanandam is the HERO of the film after NTR.... I am Fire...
I am the Fire would be heard on road ways, corridors for few more
Baadshah would be a light movie to catch after a hard
