Continuing in his two year cycle Ahmed Khan is coming back with ‘Baaghi 3’. The action thrillers starring Tiger Shroff keep getting bigger, wilder and more extreme in action as this instalment sees Shroff going to war with a whole country! The indestructible Shroff makes quite an impression in the film trailer as he heads to Syria to save his brother and is joined by Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor in the third instalment. While one can expect great action and visual effects in this movie, the music expectations are rather mediocre from this film. The past two movies cannot boast of a proper soundtrack and typically have had one or two big item dance numbers to break the action monotony in the movie. With Shroff’s dancing skills the range and variety of music is limited to dance numbers that hold the music flag up for the ‘Baaghi’ series.
The first single release is as expected a dance remake of the hit from the movie ‘Dus’ (2005). Dus Bahane 2.0 has been refreshed by the original composers Vishal – Shekhar and that is perhaps why one can’t seem to find something unique and different in this remake. Except for adding some additional music bits and sound effects the overall sound of this remake is exactly the same. There is a break dance drop added in for Shroff to deliver a solo showcase and that’s pretty much it on the music front. The lyrics are the same as the original as well and so are the vocals as KK and Shaan sound as the original. They could have just used the original 2005 vocal tracks without any need to rerecord with the singers. The only difference is the new bit of lyrics by Prachi Jalonvi in the last minute of the song with a new stanza and female vocals delivered by Tulsi Kumar. She does a fair job but it is nothing to boast of as she has much better vocals to her credit. The lyrics are fairly average and cleverly placed at the end as the original stanzas are just too strong and well known. Even the video is disappointing as Kapoor is given the role of looking sexy while Shroff takes the dance focus. There is not much dance choreography with a bigger focus on location and production. Overall this is quite disappointing as it is not really a remake but a glorified remix or a photocopy of the original. 2.5/5
