This duty is assigned to aspiring film director Myra Devekar (Kriti Sanon), who is tasked by a producer to come up with an engrossing and violent crime scene for a film. Her desire for realism and her desire to please the producer led her to do extensive research on a real-life gangster in order to write a realistic script. Bachchhan Paandey (Akshay Kumar) of Baagwa (Akshay Kumar), a merciless criminal surrounded by quirky but scary henchmen, is the result of her extensive investigation.
Vishu (Arshad Warsi) is in Baagwa, where Myra tells him about her film concept about Bachchhan Paandey. Vishu is enraged and wants her to go, but he is eventually persuaded to help her with the film. Vishu and Myra begin a campaign against Bachchhan Paandey’s thugs in an effort to gain his trust and gain access to his lair. They learn about Paandey’s dead ex-girlfriend Sophie (Jacqueline Fernandez) through Virgin, one of the thugs in the group. In order to listen in on Virgin’s chats with Paandey, Vishnu and Myra install a microphone on him.
Virgin later betrays Paandey, but he kills her when he discovers her treachery. By using a microphone, Vishu and Myra are able to hear Paandey’s group murder Myra. Initially, Paandey intends to kill Vishnu and Myra, but when he discovers that Myra is in charge of a movie production company, he agrees to spare them. However, when Paandey kidnaps Myra’s producer, she’s compelled to learn about Paandey’s past in order to craft the script.
Paandey was employed by a politician in a flashback. After a disagreement, the politician assassinates Paandey’s ex-girlfriend Sophie. Paandey kills the politician in the hospital as a form of retribution for his actions.
Bhavesh Bhoplo, an acting coach, teaches Bachchhan Paandey and his henchmen how to act. Paandey and his goons are utterly humiliated by Bhavesh’s brutality and threats. Yet they are discouraged from injuring Bhavesh by Myra because it would be inconvenient for the movie.
Eventually, the movie is finished and ready to be shown by the public. A group of thugs led by Bachchhan Paandey promote a film called “BP,” believing it to be the gritty gangster movie it was advertised as. To their dismay, the movie turns out to be a farce in which they are unfairly mocked. Both her director and the media have praised Myra’s film, which had previously received a lot of criticism from her. Her murder is planned by Bachchhan Paandey and his henchmen in order to extinguish Bachchhan Paandey’s phobia among the public. Bachchhan Paandey subsequently changes his mind about the plan after hearing her mother’s voice calling him, and his followers are moved by what they hear. Later on, Bachchhan Paandey becomes famous, and Kaandi decides to stop watching pornographic films. Best acting teacher Bhavesh Bhoplo and best comedic actor Bachchhan Paandey are named, with Myra as best director.

Take a second look on the review,
“Soaked in non-stop fun…,” commented Taran aadarsh of the 3.5-star review. Akshay Kumar is an excellent action hero, and he plays a huge role in this film. Designed for people who enjoy a good dose of violence… There are plenty of clap-and-whistle moments.
According to The Times of India’s Ronak Kotecha, the film had a “chaotic mix of odd and clichéd characters.”
