Giving more details of this supposedly heist movie that never focuses on the heist, the following are the few reasons why it turns out to be a non-performer in this particular genre unexpectedly. (*Spoliers Ahead)
A. This is the second project post INDU SARKAR that takes a potshot on Sanjay Gandhi talking about the dark, controversial era of Emergency. And the film has a pretty strange, indicative portrayal done by Priyanshu Chatterjee.
B. Its really weird to see that the director designs his entire promotional campaign around the heist, takes an hour to reach the actual loot introducing various characters and then finishes it off in just a few minutes without any obstacles at all in a hurried manner.

C. The team captures the gold, they get it melted and then we again see it converted into different form loaded on the camels reaching a surprising destination. And this whole process gets done in a couple of days, while they are all on the run saving their own lives. Moreover why they get the huge quantity of (unrecognizable & not claimable) gold melted remains a question never answered.
D. A military officer (Vidyut Jamwal) is introduced in a scene where he is sitting all alone in a train compartment, naked without his shirt. Probably the worst ever scene conceived to showcase the six-packs.
E. Vidyut gets off the train on the station and Emraan Hashmi (who is one of person planning the loot) pickpockets Vidyut for no reason at all just to add a long no-purpose chase sequence.
F. A Maharani of the entire region (Ileana) gets romantic with her bodyguard (Ajay) and takes off all her clothes in the outdoors to be in his secured arms. And she does this as per the plan, just to make a fool of him!
G. After the initial heated exchange, both Emraan and Esha start talking about their future together in just a couple of days following the age-old set formula of our Hindi films.
H. Ajay Devgn is given a dialogue as, “Wo Army Thi To Hum Bhi To Haraami Thhey”. Now what the writer wished to convey here with his rhyming words is beyond my understanding to be honest!
I. The questionably remade song “Mere Rashqe Qamar” was obviously added much later in the film as it recently (again) became famous in a viral video. (The track was originally released in the early 90s by T-series itself in a Qawwali album sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The present version also uses his vocals playing in the backdrop.)

J. Lastly there is no word as BAADSHAHO as used in the title. Having its origin in Persian, the word doesn’t exist as a plural that can be used referring to all the Baadshah like characters in the team. In fact it’s mostly used as a slang fondly addressing an individual in Punjabi circles. 
In all, as stated in the detailed review, BAADSHAO can frankly be seen (if necessary) only for three positive features namely Sanjay Mishra, its background score and the rare sensual kissing scene of Ileana. 
Rating : 2 / 5 (Including an additional 1 solely for its technical excellence)

Baadshaho was a good movie but this movie is like running everywhere. Everyone wants to say this movie is more entertaining but it does not attract or liked.
