Baabarr


killing machine A scene from the film Baabarr..

Fear struck the entire world on 11th September, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. Exactly eight years later comes Baabarr, who too wants to spread 'fear' among the people through his illegal activities. Baabarr is a story of a 12-year-old boy who fires his first shot to save his brothers.
In the next 10 years he turns into a dreaded history-sheeter, who roams the streets of Amanganj fearlessly protecting those who pay their protection fees and eliminating those who refuse.

Having seen all the crimes in his early stage, Baabarr (Soham) gets involved in his 'family business' of kidnapping, murder and other illegal acts. When the Baabarr menace reaches its peak, SP Dwivedi (Mithun Chakraborty) is given the task of capturing the dreaded criminal, dead or alive. His aide A N Chaturvedi (Om Puri) is a corrupt cop who feeds on the excesses of Baabarr and his brothers.

Then starts the chase and miss drama. The police keep chasing Baabarr, but somehow he manages to escape everytime. What one cannot understand is how the cops are not able to capture Baabarr when they know his whereabouts. The film clearly draws its inspiration from the cult classic ‘Satya’. With stars like Mithun Chakraborty, Om Puri, Urvashi Sharma (Zia- Baabarr's girlfriend) and Sushant Singh (Terbez- the criminal’s enemy), a poor storyline and weak direction leaves Baabarr nothing short of a shabby flick. In other words Baabarr is a remake of Satya sans Mumbai and Bhiku Matre.
Newcomer Soham looks more a lover boy than a killing machine as his body language is that of a teenager. Mithun Chakraborty, Om Puri and Sushant Singh make a solid statement with their roles.
