[G]lobal Baba, a relevant film on the reality of fraud god-men
Filmy Rating ★★★½
FilmyDigest -> Never judge a book by its cover, well the saying stands true for the film. So no matter what first impression you got from the trailer or the title of the movie, don’t make it your last.
Go watch this film for this one emerged to be a good and valid take on the issue that’s plaguing our society, god-men (spiritual babas).
And well that title, it might have given you that substandard feel but wait just be sorry to the person who thought of this greatest title.

Debutant makers, directed by Manoj Sidheshwari Tewari and produced by Vijay Bansal and Priya Bansal, the film shows us on the big screen what most of us already know and well most of us indulge in too, hopefully not the educated ones.
Well, that’s what the movie is about, when it’s about godmen, even the literate ones fall prey too.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
We can just talk about the people we share our country with, these are people who blindly follow, these are the people who can grant one man all the powers and well can snatch too, these are people who don’t believe in god but rather fear god and in with that very thought fall prey to god-men, by choice of course.
Somebody rational know the truth about god-men but why others follow is what the film is about, showing different reasons people get associated or stuck with these babas.
The issue is relevant, the story around it is nice, the screenplay and events are engaging and interesting too. The timing of the film is perfect given the increasing insanity towards the likes of Gurmeet Singh and Baba Ramdev and more.
The film sure loses grip in parts but not for long, seems stretched in parts but the dialogues doesn’t make it dull. Giving one easy tip for business, long-robe-long-hair, the film is quite entertaining and the climax is done nicely. The acting department is commendable and well not only the concept of the film is meaningful but the message it sends out is being nicely portrayed too, that dialogue ‘itne saare baba aur followers aate kahan se hai’ (never ending count of godmen and their followers) says it all.
The actors have a great hand in making the film what it is.
Abhimanyu Singh as Global Baba is fabulous. His expressions and eye movements, his look and his body language makes you believe in his role and what a performance, impactful and truly convincing. Pankaj Tripathi as Damru is outstanding, to act with a mumble voice and to entertain at the same time is a task of a great actor only. He is the fun and entertainment part of the movie and well undoubtedly is the shining element in the film. Ravi Kishan as Jacob is great in his role, he is confident, looks fresh and really impresses. Akhilendra Mishra as Dallu Yadav is great too, in a positive role which is rare, the actor gave quite an impressive performance.
Sandeepa Dhar as Bhavana Sharma looks nice and puts in a good act. Sanjay Mishra as Bhola Pandit, you hear the actors voice and you know something interesting is going to come up, but sadly the actor hasn’t been given an established role, nevertheless the actor never fails to make an impact.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Average songs but the good part is, the film continue its story during the songs too.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Given the fact that we live in a place where people blindly surrender themselves to godmen, the movie becomes a must watch. On the lines of PK and Oh My God yet different, the execution was quite right, the treatment could have better, and the acting department in the film is the anchor. [/EXPAND]
