Saajan is a college youth, enjoying his life, meets with Kajal the girl of his dreams at a brothel. Kajal is an innocent victim of Dhanraj, who runs this brothel. Saajan eventually falls in love with Kajal, but this love affair is not acceptable to the society, which includes his parents Mr. and Mrs. Sood. Saajan's dad Col. Sood wants his son to join the Indian army. On the other side, this relationship of love is also not acceptable to Dhanraj, since he doesn't want any of his brothel girls to go into normal respectable society. Trapped between both, Saajan, along with his friends, rescues his love from the brothel. But the question remains: Will Saajan's parents accept him along with Kajal or Will Dhanraj's evilness overcome the couple's love? Written by gavin (

Salman's First Official Action Film, A Hit Film
19 April 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Salman Khan debuted from 1989 super hit romantic film with bits of action Maine Pyaar Kiya. He then moved on to his first action film Baaghi. This film is about Salman Khan who loves Nagma the heroine but her parents don't accept(typical) as she doesn't come from a respectable family and her status isn't any good. But, there are other problems too. Her boss and the antagonist of this love story switches the genre to action. The fights are realistic and there is not tamil action like nowadays in most Salman films. It is also realistic in terms of strenght as Salman doesn't do a Sunny Deol and bashes 5 people without getting hurt which is unrealistic. He tries to fight, he fails, he gets cut and he goes to the hospital. This is actually reasonable and realistic. The romance is typical and this is the same bland romance that has been carried from Raj Kapoor films from the 60's and 70's. Overall, a decent film though not as good as most action films but still not that bad.
