Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut movie, Baywatch will be hitting theatres in India on June 2, 2017, but the movie has already received its verdict from international critics, and they are not very appealing. International reviews of the Baywatch movie have flooded in, and they all agree that the movie is senseless and Priyanka Chopra is used less. If the reviews are to be believed the PeeCee’s huge debut movie hardly has any scenes with the Indian actress. While some people have still praised Priyanka Chopra, it is clear that the Baywatch movie has failed to meet the standards of the super hit TV Series.
Priyanka Chopra plays the negative lead in the movie and critics are blatantly blaming the makers of Baywatch that have turned the leading ladies into mere dolls showing off their figures with no strong character base in a movie with no proper storyline. Baywatch series was all about the fun that people had at the beach and took a hilarious take at the Lifeguard’s pursuit and their life. However, Baywatch movie has taken the recent trend of bringing in the family angle in everything to a new low as Dwayne Johnson and others try to ‘save their family’ from the vicious Victoria Leeds.
The critics have been extremely vocal about their hatred towards the unnecessarily macho movie with a lot of skin show. Priyanka Chopra happens to be the only female character who is not running around the beach in a bikini but her character is also criticised and compared to the villains that we so often see in a TV show. Seth Gordon and his vision for the classic TV series is being heavily criticised as critics cannot bare to understand the exact point of this comedy with bad timing and hardly any humour.
While the trailers of Baywatch were quite hilarious, it is safe to say that the American critics has given the movie a big thumbs down and Dwayne Johnson’s strong biceps fail to hold this movie up. While the story, plot and timing are all being criticised, the only two people receiving praise have been Priyanka Chopra and Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Priyanka Chopra has been hailed as the Indian Goddess who was hardly given any role in the movie and Dwayne Johnson’s efforts to save the movie have been condemned by the angry critics. However, Indians are all excited for the release of this movie in India so we can all support our Desi girl, even if it means watching two hours of the utterly senseless movie!
