It seems Bollywood is improving its track record of destroying Telugu hits films year after year. The trailer of Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani starrer upcoming film, “Baaghi 2” has just been unveiled, and it comes as a shocker to Telugu film lovers to learn that the film is an official adaption of successful Telugu mystery thriller, “Kshanam”.
The trailer has mainly showcased Shroff’s agile kicks and punches. It is apparent that the soul and suspense in ‘Kshanam’ has clearly been sidelined to give space for the chiseled hero’s super-heroic stunts. In fact, Tiger has been projected as a “one-man army” in the film unlike Adivi Sesh’s character from the original, of a failed lover, which was desperate to help his ex-girl friend find her kidnapped daughter.
Disha Patani reprises the role of Adah Sharma in the Bollywood remake. More than the remake of ‘Kshanam’, ‘Baaghi 2′ appears to be the Indian version of “Rambo”. If the makers intended to make an out and out actioner, why not remake a Hollywood film instead of killing the soul of a critically acclaimed suspense thriller, opine movie buffs.
For the unknown, the first film, Baaghi, that featured Tiger and Shraddha Kapoor, was the remake of Prabhas’ “Varsham”. Even in that remake, the action part dominated the ‘romance’ quotient for which the Telugu blockbuster has attained cult status for. #KhabarLive
