#Baadshaho starts on a SOLID NOTE... Fri 12.03 cr. India biz... Biz should only grow stronger on Sat and Sun.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) September 2, 2017
In the film, Ileana D'Cruz features as princess Gitanjali, who decides to fight for her wealth which is being returned to the government. She seeks help of a gangster, Bhawani (Ajay Devgn), who is joined by Dalia (Emraan Hashmi), Sanjana (Esha Gupta), Tikla (Sanjay Mishra) and Seher (Vidyut Jammwal) in planning a heist.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote that Baadshaho is 'more a like a king without a kingdom.' "The heist thriller is devoid of the sort of highs that could be talked about. Rajat Aroraa's screenplay yields no end of high-voltage action sequences, fist fights, shootouts and explosions staged to the accompaniment of ear-splitting background music. But it lacks the meat to lend the onscreen derring-do real muscle and hold all the flab in place," wrote Mr Chatterjee.
"Baadshaho has no climax worth the name. It ends. Just like that. Seriously. We rarely, if ever, see a Bollywood action flick fizzle out so tamely. It's either a radical departure from norm or plain daft: make what you will of it. For this critic, it's the latter," he added.
Sunny Leone makes a cameo in the movie.
Baadshaho clashed at the box office with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar's Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
