Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is one of those rare Bollywood films where everyone involved has put in a lot of effort and made something beautiful and perfect. The concept is simple and yet so brilliantly executed. I normally don’t enjoy watching Hindi films for a variety of reasons. But man this movie blew my mind!!
This movie starts out with two idealistic, righteous and yet naive young friends looking to stand up against everything that is wrong with our nation. What begins as small acts of bravery and integrity for their YouTube Channel Insaaf TV grows into a whole war against corrupt powerful government officials and their substantial network of goons in local political circles and the police department.
The hero is so human and flawed just like the rest of us. He has a day job and a girlfriend who he shares his dreams with. He is not like those shiny Bollywood heroes with their gelled hair and cool topless scenes and sexist attitude that make women come running and fall in love.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is the average Indian who eats in the local food joint, drinks at the local bar and buys stuff off of the roadside markets. This simple guy who decides that he is the only one who can make a difference because he has “no other option”.
Isn’t that what being a hero, a superhero, is all about? When everyone who can do something about it is corrupt, you’ve just got to fix it yourself.
I am so glad that the actors in this film are not our usual Bollywood superstars. Actors Harshvardhan Kapoor and Priyanshu Painyuli‘s acting talents have shone through beautifully. I can honestly say that no one else could have done their roles better than these two gentlemen.
If you are a fan of good superhero origin stories then this is one you just shouldn’t miss.
Have you seen this movie yet ? If not, I urge you to book your tickets and watch it right away. This is one which you will definitely regret not having seen earlier.
