Cast: Harshvardhan Kapoor, Priyanshu Painyuli
Director: Vikramaditya Motwane
Story: Priyanshu Painyuli (Bhavesh Joshi) and Siku (Harshvardhan Kapoor) are best buddies as they are concerned about revolutionising the system. When Bhavesh Joshi gets killed in a water scam by the goons, Siku decided to avenge the death of his friend. The rest of the story is how Siku discovers the dirt in the system and his mission to clean the system and corruption.
Harshvardhan Kapoor has delivered an impressive performance in comparison to his debut film Mirzya. The actor has worked on his expressions and dialogues and made a successful impact. I’m certain scenes, he is brilliant and interesting. But, a lot of improvement is expected from an actor like Harshvardhan as he comes from a family of great actors.
Anish Verma has played his part decently. The character of Anish is good.
Priyanka Painyuli gets some great scenes and has delivered a good performance.
Music and Dialogues: The background score is good which goes well with the scenes. The dialogues aren’t that great and don’t make any impact.
Direction: Director Vikramaditya Motwane who has earlier directed films like Lootera and Trapped has made a superhero film with a Desi touch and feel to it. The writing of the film is sloppy at certain points which can be stretched and dragged. Post interval, there are several action sequences which are filmed brilliantly. The bike sequence is an interesting to watch. The film starts off exceptionally well and makes you interested in the story. The story also highlights the corrupt system and the dirty politics of the officials. The film could have been much better if the treatment wouldn’t be melodramatic and loud.
Cinespeaks Verdict: Bhavesh Joshi is a Desi superhero. Do not go to the cinema halls with the expectations of a DC or Marvel Superhero film. The film is enjoyable only in certain parts and is not impressive totally. Unfortunately, Vikramaditya Motwane has missed to hit the right chord this time.
