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. Junior NTR's performance is the main attraction in it. Srinu Vaitla's interesting narration, S Thaman's rocking music, excellent picturisation, Gopimohan and Kona Venkat's punch dialogues and funny one-lines, Brahmanandam and MS Narayana's rib-tickling comedy, exotic locales and beautiful costumes are its other highlights.
However, Baadshah has received rich and generous ratings from film critics. The movie has been rated an average of 3.25 out of 5. Continue to read film critics' verdict in slide show.
