SYNOPSIS
It was 1975. A time when they say India fought for its second independence. It was a time of turmoil, a time where destinies could be made or destroyed, and fortunes stolen or lost. A time when power was absolute. In a time like that, the quasi government went after royal families all over the country especially in Rajasthan, claiming that they had not declared their wealth in 1971 when the privy purses were abolished.

It claimed that several crores worth of antiques, gold, jewellery and treasures were concealed by the royals. Most of these raids were conducted in Rajasthan, and Baadshaho is the story of one such raid.

Verdict: A period drama packed with action, thrill and romance. Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, and Milan Luthria have worked together for the period thriller Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai and the trio hits the screen again in another multi-starrer that will leave you starstruck. The film starts with a royal evening hosted by Rani []... ...Read full review
On paper, Baadshaho may have seemed to have the merit of a Hollywood heist thriller like Ocean`s Eleven. This is perhaps why Ajay Devgn even agreed to be a part of this mutli-starrer, which attempts to make immoral con men look good. But the execution offers zero novelty. ...Read full review
The film starts off in the year 1973 in the deserts of Rajasthan with the introduction of Ileana DCruz as Rani Gitanjali Devi. This is followed by Emergency being declared during 25th June 1975. Back then, Gitanjali gets arrested and jailed for possessing a massive ancestral wealth, which the government takes under its sway. ...Read full review
Director Milan Luthria`s fourth collaboration with star Ajay Devgn, Baadshaho, a heist thriller devoid of the sort of highs that could be talked about, is anything but the emperor of all it surveys. It is packed with high-voltage action sequences, fist fights, shootouts and explosions staged to the accompaniment of ear-splitting background music, but the Rajat Aroraa-authored screenplay lacks the meat to lend the onscreen derring-do real muscle and hold all the flab in place. ...Read full review
Dont get fooled by the set during the backdrop of the Emergency thread in Baadshaho. That and few other elements are just window dressing in Milan Luthrias cops-and-robbers tale, which plays out in one his favourite locations: Rajasthan. ...Read full review
Things get truly down and dirty towards the end. Which is to say the concluding 20 minutes of Baadshaho are so hazy and dusty, I found myself mentally vacuum cleaning the screen. I wish to do the same to the memory of this movie. ...Read full review
The team of writer Rajat Aroraa and director Milan Luthria who partnered on The Dirty Picture and Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai present their trademark brand of glib one-liners and needlessly pumped up bravado in Baadshaho, an action thriller. ...Read full review
The year is 1973. A Rajasthan princess thwarts the advances of a powerful politician, who has an uncanny resemblance to Sanjay Gandhi, by pointing a sword at his heart. The animosity between the two takes two years to culminate when the government declares the Emergency. ...Read full review
Director Milan Luthria marked his directorial debut with the multi-starrer Kachche Dhaage (1999) and no one thought it was good back then. Later, he went on to direct films like The Dirty Picture and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, which not only gave him the tag of a great storyteller but also a commercially viable director. If one notices, Milan has always made period films and Baadshaho too is one of them, which is set in the time of Emergency. But this time, he completely loses the plot and fails to even entertain. ...Read full review
Whats particularly disappointing about this film is that even the dialogue has a recycled feel to it, although its the work of Rajat Arora who has powered many a mediocre film with his clap-trap lines. 15 years ago Baadshaho might not have been an awful film, but today it feels sexist, formulaic and completely outdated. Its a waste of both time and money. Im going with one-and-a-half out of five. ...Read full review
