Baaghi (transl. Rebel) is a 2016 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. A remake of the 2004 Telugu film Varsham,[2] with a climax inspired by the 2011 Indonesian film The Raid: Redemption, the film stars Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles and Sudheer Babu in his Hindi debut, with Sunil Grover in a supporting role.[3][4]

Baaghi was released worldwide on 29 April 2016. Made on a budget of ₹370 million (US$5.2 million), the film earned over ₹1.27 billion (US$18 million) worldwide.[5] Later on, it spawned two spiritual sequels, Baaghi 2 (2018) and Baaghi 3 (2020), thus becoming the first installment in the Baaghi film series.The film starts with martial arts champion and Dreaded Gangster Raghav Shetty (Sudheer Babu) force-abducting Sia Khurana (Shraddha Kapoor) from her film's set in Hyderabad and taking her to Bangkok. Sia's father, P.P. Khurana (Sunil Grover), along with the producer Dasanna, goes to government offices and the police for help, but no one is ready to assist them since Raghav is an influential man and there is no extradition treaty between India and Thailand in existence. Khurana then suggests to Dasanna that Sia's ex-boyfriend, Ranveer 'Ronnie' Pratap Singh (Tiger Shroff), is the only perfect choice left for the job. Initially hesitant, Ronnie agrees to do so, since he needs money to treat Subbu, a mute young boy who is being treated for his vocal chords.

In a flashback, Ronnie and Sia meet on a train. Raghav sees Sia at the train station and starts to like her. He tells his men to get information about her. Ronnie visits the martial arts school of a certain Guruswamy, Raghav's father, in Kollam, Kerala. In a letter to Guruswamy, Ronnie's father, Samarjit Singh (Arun Bali), who happens to be his ex-batchmate from the army, explains that Ronnie is a rebel and asks him to make Ronny a good human being. Ronnie and Sia fall in love, and Sia gives him a ring she got from her father, asking him always to keep it. Raghav asks for Sia's hand from Khurana, and Khurana is lost by greed when he sees how much money Raghav offers for Sia. He agrees to hand Sia over to Raghav, but when he sees that Ronnie has Sia's ring, he realizes she is in love with Ronnie. He informs Raghav, who decides to kill Ronnie.

Guruswamy overhears his son Raghav's words about killing Ronnie and refuses to let him do so; Raghav, feeling humiliated, poisons and kills him to get him out of the way. Ronnie beats up Raghav's men when they manhandle Subbu, who Ronnie is close to, only for Raghav to get him arrested later on after he is seen mourning for Guruswamy, who he had begun seeing as a father-figure. Khurana then creates a misunderstanding between Sia and Ronnie to separate them, which works, and the two part ways.

In the present, Ronnie reaches Bangkok and visits Raghav's fight club, beating the most potent fighter there to get Raghav's attention. The next day, Ronnie breaks into the house of Raghav's right-hand man, Biju, and holds Biju's wife at gunpoint, forcing him to reveal Sia's location. Finding out she was at the local hospital, Ronnie saves Sia and escapes with her under both of them being disguised as a doctor and nurse. The two stop at an island on their way back to India, where Sia discovers her father's deceit when she sees that Ronnie is still wearing her ring. The couple reconciles, but Raghav and his men attack them. Biju shoots Ronnie, who falls off a cliff.

Raghav takes Sia back to his place. It is then revealed that Ronnie is alive. It turns out that Biju had used blank bullets in his gun, sparing him as Ronnie had spared his wife's life earlier. Biju claims he spared Ronnie as he believed him to be right, but Raghav slits his throat.

Ronnie storms Raghav's building and single-handedly fights off all of the killers and swordsmen in Raghav's employ. He reaches Raghav, who initially overpowers him, but when Raghav reveals that he was the one who murdered Guruswamy, Ronnie becomes enraged and uses Guruswamy's signature moves to kill Raghav.
