Seth Gordon’s “Baywatch” have been quite a talk since it is the Hollywood debut of Indian Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra. Baywatch is a OK to watch entertainer if you are a fan of sleazy, confusing and double meaning humor. Its a perfect easy go entertainer if your only motive is to enjoy the comedy as it is. Dwayne Johnson who plays the role of Mitch Buchannon, steals the show with his sarcastic one liners and Zac effron’s character is hilarious. The film is not up to the mark of its original TV series “Baywatch”. The film is built up around sex jokes and seems to focus more on sex appeal of the lead actors.
Victoria Leeds, the new owner of a hotel on Emerald Bay that is a front for a drug smuggling operation conducted in broad daylight. The chief lifeguard of the bay, Mitch (Dwayne) and his group then decides to take some serious action against this. This is the primary plot of the film.
Priyanka Chopra, plays Victoria Leeds in the film. She is seen in a different avatar as she aces the bad girl character. She looks all Indian in the film, perfectly glamorous and bold. But her role is somewhat like stereotyping Indian Actresses to always being Sexy. We have quite other examples proving this if we look in detail. The flash appearance by Hollywood beauty Pamela Anderson is a treat. The quirky chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron is another positive aspect about the film and is fun to watch
The numerous amount of Indian censor cuts leaves the film looking senseless. The film is not very audience friendly if you are planning to watch the movie with your family. Seth Gordon for sure has made better humor films in his career. Despite all these, if you are into sleezy and dumber jokes, the film is a yes yes!!
