Storyline

Born in violent Amanganj, Uttar Pradesh, Mohammad Baabarr Qureshi watches his eldest brother go to jail for killing Kale Pahelwan. He watches and learns from his other brothers, seriously injures another boy, and after acquiring a gun, kills the boy's father. He grows up to be a much-feared gangster in an area where the police themselves fear to venture. While S.P. Mrityujain Dwivedi would like to arrest him, he holds back and instead encourages Baabarr's rival, Tabrez Alam, to gain more ground and enter into an open conflict with the former. Things escalate to such an extent that Baabarr is forced to flee to his wife, Afreen, in Kolkata, where he is eventually traced and brought before the courts. This is where the Uttar Pradesh police will experience frustration when the court holds Baabarr in judicial custody forbidding the police to even lay a hand on him. With over 200 incidents, virtually no witnesses nor evidence to tie him to any crime, it does look as if Baabaar, who has ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Masterfull..... A Fantastic Film!
18 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ashu Trikha has made fantastic cinema in 'Baabarr', a brilliant film.

An outstanding effort, a film that talks about crime. It says, Crime Never Dies, It Only Chances Faces...

Yes, 'Baabarr' is gory & abusive, but that's works in it's favor. This film promises to be hard-hitting, and it lives up-to the mark completely.

Right from the beginning when a teenager takes us to the world of these corrupt, evil people, your sucked into this violent world. Plus the culmination takes you by surprise... it leaves you awe-struck.

Direction wise, Ashu Trikha does a brilliant job. He delivers one of the most powerful films of recent time. Dialogue are brilliant as well, so is the Cinematography. Music by Anand Raaj Anand is good.

Performance-Wise: Mithun is fantastic. The style this man has is untouchable. Om Puri is first-rate as the corrupt cop. Soham as Baabarr, is very good. Playing a complex/conniving character with great understanding. He's here to stay. Sushant Singh is competent. Tinnu Anand is excellent; especially in his death scene. Mukesh Tiwari impresses, yet again. Shakti Kapoor is effective in a brief role. Urvashi Sharma looks pretty and delivers a fine performance. Govind Namdeo, Vishwajeet Prdhan & Pratima Kazmi, are good.

On the whole 'Baabarr' is a powerful film. Violence can be ignored, watch this masterstroke.
