Baa Baaa Black Sheep Review & Rating
Baa Baaa Black Sheep marks the directorial debut of actor Vishwas Pandya, who pays homage to the films he grew up watching. The film stars Manish Paul, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Manjari Fadnis and Kay Kay Menon in pivotal roles. It tells the story of a happy go lucky boy living in Goa named Baba (Manish Paul). On his 25th birthday, Baba finds out that his father Charudutt Sharma (Anupam Kher) is a serial killer and is blackmailed into becoming an assassin as well. Baba is in love with Angelina (Manjari) who is the daughter of an art forger named Brian Morris (Annu Kapoor).
Brian gets in trouble after selling a fake art piece to Home Minister Utpal’s (Manish Wadhwa) mistress (Natasha Puri). Baba is then hired to kill the father of his girlfriend and hilarity ensues. Kay Kay Menon appears in an elongated cameo as a cop who does not follow the rules and wants to catch the drug dealers in Goa that are financed by the home minister.
Manish Paul gives an over the top performance and his overacting kills the mood. He also acts as the narrator, which starts to get annoying after a certain point. The script of the film might have seemed like a good idea on paper but fails miserably when it comes to execution. Manjari’s character has been given no depth and just acts as eye candy. Kay Kay Menon performs well in his brief appearance but is not enough to save the film.
Annu Kapoor, who has impressed us with his comic roles in the past, fails to deliver his best here and his character seems very bland and unrealistic. The saving grace of the film is Anupam Kher, who has perfect comic timing and does his best to save the film from being boring. Some of the best scenes have been filmed on Anupam Kher. Apart from him, Manish Wadhwa gives an impressive performance as the home minister and he fits the role perfectly.
Direction by Vishwas Pandya is all over the place and the film loses all sense of logic in its second half. The background score is very loud and unneeded and gets the attention away from what’s happening in the scene. The songs too seem misplaced and the film could have done better without them.
Verdict: Baa Baaa Blacksheep has no logic and gets boring at times. Can be missed.
