Story


Baabarr is a 2009 Indian Bollywood action, crime film released on Sep 11, 2009. The film is directed by Ashu Y. Trikha, produced by Sunil Saini.

A 12 year old boy picks up a country made gun and shoots a man in cold blood! His eyes, devoid of any emotion. His heart exhibits no remorse. After shooting the person in broad day light, this 12 year old boy walked the streets of Aman ganj, with a gun in one hand. Everyone present in the market watched this young lad walk with no fear.

The fear in fact had translated, from him into everyone’s heart there. He had made a mark!!!

The boy who started from the streets of Aman ganj had trespassed every barrier of crime. For the 10 years that followed he traumatized one and all. His reign of fear terrorized everyone in the state, right from the common man to the Government. This was … BAABARR (Soham Shah)!!!

In May 2004 when this reign of fear knew no bounds, the Government summoned a man to put an end to all of this. An encounter specialist S.P. Dwivedi (Mithun Chakroborty). The order was simple, arrest him or kill hill him!!!

On job, S.P. Dwivedi realizes that there is more than what meets the eye. It is not only BAABARR, but there exists a cartel that is tough to penetrate!! BAABARR in fact feeds on the very people that want him dead. S.P. Dwivedi realizes that there is no straight strategy around this. So he along with his associate, Daroga (Om Puri) set out to nab the one man who is untouchable today. These two will do anything under the purview of the law or even over it, to curb this antisocial. For this they would need to get into their scheme the dreaded adversary of Baabarr called TABREZ (Sushant Singh), but without his knowledge.

What follows is a film noir, packed with action, shot at realistic locations of Lucknow. The grungy look of the city’s by-lanes and skyline of UP add to the character of the film. This dark film is intricately layered and looks not only into the life of a criminal but attempts to peep into the concept of ‘CRIME’ and areas where ‘Crime’ is nurtured. A parallel world that co exists with ours. A world our society dreads, where corruption excels, which the politicians exploit and where the honest succumb. Unfortunate but true!!!
