"Baabarr"is the movie in which violence rules the roost. Amanganj, the locale, very much paradoxical to its temperament, is meant for brutality. Baabarr is the youngest of five brothers, butchers by profession, initially display to live in relative harmony. But, an ill-feeling comes to pass with a neighbour called Pehewaan resulting the two parties at dagger's drawn. Baabarr( new comer Sohum Shah) grows up by the gun, of the gun and for the gun. His eldest brother (Shakti Kapoor) is a "don" who operates a racket from gaol. Sushant Singh, a deadpan killer, is Tabrez, who rivals Baabarr in every quarter. Vote bank politics brings forth the police, headed by SP Dwivedi (Mithun Chakroverty). The wild geese chase is on, but the chief of the cops proves a foil to humble the two killers. OmPuri, a creepy cop is a bad use.
There are twists and turns in the story of brutality between the cops and the killers. The tension, of course, takes you to the post-intermission, when you may expect some sanguinary catestrophe. The local dialect in UP has authenticated the rustic flavour, though it is in reminiscent with "Gangajal","Apaharan""Shool" and "Satya".
The dirctor Ashu Trikha is innovative in his enterprise but, eventually, has fallen in the line. Back-ground music could have been toned down.Sohum Shah in his debut has done a brilliant job. Sushant Singh, Tinu Anand and Urvashi Sharma have done justice to their respective roles. The movie is not merely playing to the gallery and , therefore, worth watching.
