Baak Movie Review

Baak (Aranmanai 4) revolves around a young man deeply devoted to his sister, embarking on a journey to uncover the truth behind her mysterious suicide. As he delves deeper, he unravels a sinister plot endangering the lives of his sister's children, compelling him to protect them from unseen threats.


In Baak, Shiva Shankar (Sundar C), an advocate residing with his aunt (Kovai Sarala), is devastated by the news of his sister Shivani's (Tamannaah) alleged suicide. Fueled by suspicion, he embarks on a quest to unravel the truth, only to discover that his sister's children are in imminent peril. As he delves deeper into the mystery, he encounters startling revelations and uncovers a web of deceit. The narrative takes a gripping turn as Shiva Shankar uncovers the connection between these events and the enigmatic Dr. Maya (Raashi Khanna), leading to a riveting climax that forms the crux of the story.

Baak Movie Review


Sundar C portrays the role of the brother in his signature style, delivering either subtle or singular expressions on screen. Tamannaah Bhatia shines in her portrayal of the sister and mother of two, effectively conveying her love for her brother and her fierce determination to protect her children.

Raashi Khanna's role as Dr. Maaya is limited, and she goes through the motions without leaving a significant impact. Kovai Sarala, Vennela Kishore, and Srinivas Reddy entertain viewers with their comedic timing, while Motta Rajendran and Jaya Prakash deliver solid performances. Simran and Ramya Krishnan surprise audiences with a song in the climax, adding to the entertainment factor.

Baak Movie Review

Sundar C continues the story of "Baak" in a manner similar to his approach in previous "Aranmanai" films. This time, he balances humor and horror more effectively, creating a satisfying experience for viewers. While the storyline may be predictable, the film ensures mass appeal through its humor. The interval twist adds intrigue, and the second half is emotionally engaging.

The climax fight scene is well-executed, with impressive VFX and stunt choreography enhancing the viewing experience. Hiphop Tamizha's music is fitting to the situations, particularly in conveying the emotions of the mother and children. His background score elevates key scenes, leaving a lasting impact. Krishnasamy's cinematography captures the essence of the film, presenting scenes in a natural and realistic manner. The high-quality VFX adds to the film's visual appeal. Nasir and Fenny Oliver's editing is decent but could have been tighter. Overall, the film boasts good production values, contributing to its overall appeal.

Baak Movie Review


Sundar C's Baak offers a delightful blend of humor and horror, providing a wholesome entertainment experience, particularly appealing to the masses. While some viewers may find the storyline predictable and certain scenes illogical, approaching the film without expectations can lead to a more enjoyable viewing experience, allowing them to appreciate its lighter, entertaining aspects.
