Tamannah and Raashki Khanna's Baak Movie Review

Movie: Baak

Cast: Sundar C, Tamannaah Bhatia, Raashii Khanna, Kovai Sarala, Vennela Kishore, Sreenivas Reddy and others
Director: Sundar C

Shiva Shankar, portrayed by Sundar C, is a dedicated lawyer. His world is turned upside down when he discovers that his sister Shivani, played by Tamannaah, has tragically taken her own life, and her husband meets a mysterious demise in a forest. Unable to accept that his sister would resort to such drastic measures, Shiva Shankar embarks on a quest to unravel the truth behind the deaths of Shivani and her husband. The rest of the movie follows Shiva Shankar's quest to uncover the secrets. 


Sundar C was good in the lead role. Tamannaah Bhatia played a crucial role, and though her screen time was limited, she could make her presence felt with an appropriate performance. Raashii Khanna was decent, while Kovai Sarala, Vennela Kishore, and Sreenivas Reddy were able to provide only a few laughs. Ramchandra Raju played a crucial role effectively.

What Worked For The Film:

Director Sundar C has taken a bold leap by introducing a fresh element in Baak. In contrast to the previous installments of the Aranmanai series, this movie presents a unique concept known as Baak, a supernatural entity that feeds on human flesh and possesses the ability to change its form. This eerie spirit relentlessly torments the main characters throughout the film. This new backdrop and the backstory of Tamannah's character, which is linked with the history of Baak, worked very well for the film and provided several thrilling moments. The Pre and Post Interval Parts were bang on with perfect impact, and though an unnecessary song at the climax hampers the flow, the divine angle at the end worked well and brought the much-required emotional implications. The VFX and background score also complement the film's narrative. 

What Did Not Work For The Film:

In numerous scenes, the silly and loud comedy fails to deliver, resulting in annoyance. These humorous moments appear entirely out of sync and diminish the overall effect. Except for the Pre climax, the comedy track of Vennela Kishore and Sreenivas Reddy does not resonate much. Like the other films in the Aranmanai franchise, Baak follows a predictable formula in a few places. The Climax part appeared a little dragged. 

Baak Review And Verdict:

Baak is a Passable Horror Thriller. A new backdrop and well-placed twists back up the regular plot. The thrilling elements work well, while the over-the-top comedy scenes considerably reduce the impact, as they hinder the film’s flow and do not add any value to the plot except for the pre-climax. The Climax episode appears a little dragged out. The VFX is good, and the background score is also effective.
