Baabarr (2009)

null
For those still not tired of films about gun-toting goons, tobacco-chewing gangsters, power-hungry politicians, humourless encounter specialists and, most importantly, corrupt cops, here’s another addition to the genre – Baabarr.BAABARR is the story of crime set with Lucknow as the backdrop. It is also the story of how crime is nurtured for political gains; how vote banks are developed and protected and of the good cop and bad cop.

Cast: Soham, Mithun Chakraborty, Urvashi Sharma

Shot in the by lanes of Uttar Pradesh, this crime fest is loaded with gunshots and dead bodies.You lose count after the first reel.It is also the story of a 12-year-old boy who fires his first shot to save his brothers from being killed.There on, at age 22, he roams the streets fearlessly, protecting those who pay their ?protection fee’ and eliminating those who refuse.As expected, there is violence galore.But our hero Baabarr (newcomer Soham Shah) looks more a lover boy than a killing machine.There is no meanness in his eyes and his body language is that of a teenager who has just set his hands on a revolver; not that of a seasoned killer.

Though heavily bearded, he is allowed to enter a school dressed in a uniform.He is there to assassinate the Chief Minister’s brother.At another instance, he dresses up as the groom and sits besides the bride’s father! Even when he is shot from a point-blank range with the gun placed at his temple, he survives with a scratch on his cheek. What cheek!

Though Soham has a screen presence, his choice to play the lead was a bad one. In fact, Tabrez, Baabaar’s rival, portrayed menacingly by Sushant Singh has enough fire in him to give Soham a complex.There are also shots of Baabarr’s elder brother Sarfaraz (Shakti Kapoor) making frantic calls to a Mayawati lookalike from his prison cell when Baabarr has been captured. What one cannot understand is how Sarfaraz became so powerful in prison.He was sent to jail when Baabarr was 12 years old.Sarfaraz then had accidentally killed a goon in a fight, which got out of hand.
