'Baabarr': Thoroughly engrossing!

'Baabarr' is a captivating and powerful tale. Sure, there's excessive violence, but there's a reason behind it and that works in its favour.

Review of 'Baabarr'


'Baabarr' shows how people, even kids, live by the gun and die by the gun. It tells you that crime never ends, it only changes faces. It tells of the wicked nexus between cops-politicians-gangsters and the deterioration of the law and order machinery. Also, this one's not Mumbai-centric, but is set in Uttar Pradesh.

'Baabarr' isn't just bloodshed, but at the same time, isn't for the faint-hearted either. There's violence galore, in fact several sequences are brutal, and chances are a section of the movie-going audience [read families/ladies] might shy away from this experience.

Yet, what makes 'Baabarr' a must-watch experience is its story, the strong script [Ikram Akhtar] and the deftness with which director Ashu Trikha has narrated the story. Without a shred of doubt, 'Baabarr' is one of the most powerful films to come out of Bollywood in 2009.
