Synopsis : All in all it's the sort of movie that offers some asinine entertainment whose USP is the utter predictability it offers - mundanely amusing!

Movie Review : Roger Ebert, the Pulitzer Prize winning film critic - widely regarded as the most influential film critic ever - passed away on Thursday. Don't know how many Telugu films he reviewed but he would have struggled to make sense of the best jokes in Baadshah. For this movie is all about the gags, but you would need to have the IQ of the venerable Nandamuri fan to appreciate them.

For the non fans we have MS Narayana playing a very Ram Gopal Varma inspired character - Revenge Nageshwar Rao - in the first half and Brahmanandam getting slapped countless times in the second half. There some funny references about Dil Raju, Siddharth, and some banal Telugu movie trivia as well. Its slapstick comedy at it's loudest, the filmmakers have thrown in everything except laugh tracks! Looking at the way we are going it might just be a matter of time before we see them as well.

The acting equally over the top and NTR creams it, however his straightened hair might just have overshadowed everything else. The straight hair we're afraid just isn't macho enough, never mind the designer suits and sunglasses. Kajal Aggarwal looks her best flaunting her navel while dancing in the back drop of snowcapped peaks of Italy and Switzerland. There are just too many villains try to out scream each other - except the wooden Kelly Dorjee - and none of them register.

The film's musical score is passable at best save a couple of peppy numbers. Also there is too much of Dookudu hangover in this movie. The packaging is all the same, but somehow it just doesn't come together as well. After a decent first half, the film loses the plot in the second half, especially towards the end.

All in all it's the sort of movie that offers some asinine entertainment whose USP is the utter predictability it offers - mundanely amusing!

Note : Try to erase all memories of Dookudu to enjoy this one, the more you forget the more you will enjoy this.
