In the entire story, half a dozen bad men are chasing a black box, and are being chased by police including undercover cops like Ashok (Prabhas) and Amrita (Shraddha Kapoor). Amongst numerous gangs in a futuristic city of Waaji, one is led by Roy (Jackie Shroff). He dies (or is killed) in an accident post which all of the gangs unite to get that black box.
By end of the first half, Ashok is no more undercover, he falls madly in love with Amrita, villains have their cameos and audience is officially confused about what the makers want to establish. In this chase of what’s said to be 2-lakhs-crores (lol), the gangs of Waaji, amidst very ordinary twists, fight each other to know what was in that Black box. Who got it? What is contained? Was it really as important as introduced?
Prabhas’ performance somewhat intrigues you in watching what’s going on. Though his Hindi is horrible, and his original dubbing artist should’ve done that job for him. He’s styled well, but so is Chunky Pandey. Shraddha Kapoor’s track is the most unwanted thing in the film, of course after the fact of this story getting such humongous backing. She looks as she’s in her other movies, has a couple of unwanted action sequences, that’s about it.
It’s a 350-crore worth of opportunity lost! You can watch it for the visuals. It will surely create history in the Box Office with credit to Prabhas being the star of the Baahubali franchise.
