Baywatch is an adaptation of famous TV show from 90’s.It is an average watch, can see if you are Priyanka Chopra’s fan. The movie revolves around the life of lifeguards who figure something fishy on the beach and try to solve the mystery. It has few good comedy scenes- One where Jon Bass get stuck on a beach table in front of everyone & one in the morgue.
Dwayne Johnson brings muscle & Zac Efron brings energy to the movie. The chemistry between the two is a treat to watch. Kelly rohrbach reminds you of the original TV series. She is the one who resembles of the original starcast of Baywatch TV series.Seems like,Jon Bass is just a funny, awkward & clumsy team mate. But he acted well in few scenes,taking clumsiness to next level.Christopher Lennertz has done justice with the Music. Original Baywatch stars David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson from the TV series have played a cameo in the movie.Alexandra Daddario is looking cute as ever.
Priyanka Chopra has played the role of Victoria Leeds. She,as owner of the Huntley Club runs a drug smuggling business. She is looking astonishing in a negative role. Climax will break the heart of those, who are die-hard fans of Priyanka. She is not given much opportunity to showcase her talent. Either she is attending parties or threatening people. Her lesser screen presence is disappointing for Indian fans.
Overall the movie is an average watch. Plus points are the comedy, and the chemistry of the Baywatch team. Negative point is weak screenplay & weak portrayal of the negative character. Seems like ,the director has used only the good looks of the actors rather than the acting potential. I would give it 2.5 out of 5.
