To call Bhavesh Joshi Superhero a lost opportunity is a gross understatement. To compare it to the other genre misfires from this country would be a disservice to its aspirational tone.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is another impressive outing for this filmmaker, and it definitely deserves some international recognition
All said and done, Motwane breaks into new territories with his innovative take on superhero films. Bhavesh Joshi Superhero has its heart in the right place and its tone is totally indigenous.
There is much to like here - the atmospherics, Painyuli's performance that is notches above Kapoor's, and Motwane's feel for noir, but his home-grown hero still falls short. Hopefully this will be a franchise...
The over-stretched thriller is also a stark reminder of the troubled times we live with mob justice and digital warriors shaping public opinion.
It doesn't entirely succeed, but Vikramaditya Motwane's take on the superhero genre is worth a look.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero works beautifully until the interval point before gradually losing its way to laboured plotting, implausible twists and banal moralising.
The film flirted with the concept of a common man being influenced by graphic novels and superhero movies to become a vigilante...it makes a case for a proper superhero origins film.
