Bhavesh Joshi Superhero Movie Review: With the raising no. of crimes one tends to lose the essence of goodness. Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is one such film that reminds and inspires you to fight for good, in your own small/big way.
Helmed by –Vikramaditya Motwane, who has previously directed films like Udaan, Looteram, and Trapped. Harshvardhan Kapoor hails the lead character in the movie which is roughly based on Mumbai’s Water Mafia. In an interview, Harsh mentioned that this movie is on the line of real-life heroism like Nayak, well we not just agree but believe that’s it a slight notch higher.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero Movie Review
To be honest, this film is wrongly marketed it is surely not a superhero film. It is a story of a character, Sikandar (Harshvardhan), who at first plays a pseudo-reformist.
But when things take a turn for the worst he soon realizes that it’s not about being a superhero at all and in fact nor even a hero, all of it and more was a necessary step of raising one’s voice and making it matter.
For once a movie has managed to downplay the image of the typical hero. The well-written screenplay builds up slowly and steadily towards a strong climactic outburst that will prickle your conscience for some stumbling answers to some noteworthy questions.
Playing the part of a corporator level politician who dreams of ruling Mumbai, Nishikant Kamat manages to be a menacing villain. Harshvardhan, pose a great amount of growth and stability in his post-debut role. He seamlessly steps into the shoes of a ‘hero,’ without losing his sense of ordinariness. He is well supported by two other young actors Pryanshu Painyuli and Ashish Verma who play Harshvardhan’s brothers in arms.
What makes this film extraordinary is that it catches you off-guard. With an underline message of social awakening, the unostentatious heroism and the extraordinary strength shown by ordinary people churns your thinking wheels. It doesn’t offer a ready-made solution that might not be possible in real life. It offers us a thought to go out there and try to make a difference.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero Rating
We rate the movie a solid 3.5. It is grim, socialist and thought-provoking but in a subtle sartorial manner that doesn’t offend you but engages you instead.
