Verdict: A refreshingly realistic story of a common man turned superhero. Not everyone gets it right the first time and there are only a few who give it a second try. Harshvardhan Kapoor is one of those few who took the second chance. He has definitely put his all into his new project. After brilliant films like Trapped, Lootera, and Udaan, Vikramaditya Motwane has stood up to the expectations wit... ...Read full review

For a while now, Bollywood has played it safe. The themes of many recent films have been in tandem with the current political atmosphere, and for the most part, you`re compelled to feel a sense of patriotism and pride. That`s where Bhavesh Joshi Superhero breaks away from the well-trodden path. It takes a route that Bollywood might not want to set foot on. ...Read full review
Be it Krrish or A Flying Jatt, a strong sense of personal loss has never been the hallmark of the Hindi superhero films. They never came out of the shadow of their western counterparts. Their villains were caricatures and their crusades were designed to mostly impress children, their core viewers. On that account, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is indeed the right step in terms of a mature presentation and setting the agenda right. ...Read full review
A city engulfed by corruption, a masked hero wanting to bring reform and save his city from crumbling under the weight of greedy politicians and police officers. Bhavesh Joshi is the story of a bunch of friends Sikander (Harshvardhan Kapoor), Bhavesh (Priyanshu Painyuli) and Rajat (Ashish Varma) who form a masked vigilante group aimed at eradicating corruption and meting out justice to the common man. ...Read full review
With Vikramaditya Motwane at the helm, one would be assured of the fact that he would stick to reality as much as possible. His superhero wouldn`t be shooting laser from his eyes or flying across space. Care has been taken in detailing out the transformation of a common man into a vigilante. It doesn`t happen overnight. It`s an arduous passage filled with many pitfalls and is as much a test of will as it is of physical ability. Bones get broken, blood gets shed and tears are spilled before our hero turns super. ...Read full review
The film tells the story of two idealistic friends who are fed up with the mess the country is in, and vows to make a change. One of them loses sight of his ideals along, but the other, Bhavesh Joshi strives for perfection. ...Read full review
What sets this one apart from most superhero movies, is the fact that its capeless crusader doesnt possess any superpowers. This renders a realism that makes him vulnerable to blows, ensures he doesnt always land his uppercuts precisely and only occasionally, manages to dodge the jabs. So essentially, we have a hero who may not be super but strives for perfection and is willing to go the extra mile for insaaf, even if it may come at this cost of his inevitable end. ...Read full review
There is a dialogue in the film towards the end, "Democracy mein aukaat sabki hoti hai. Bas humein ladna nahin chhodna chahiye." Mouthed by a brilliant Priyanshu Painyuli, this dialogue, you realise, is the crux of this unique take on superhero/vigilante film. Director Vikramaditya Motwane, who is known for pushing the envelope with each of his films be it Udaan, criminally underrated Lootera or last year`s masterpiece Trapped, has done the unthinkable when it comes to the superhero genre. ...Read full review
Set against the backdrop of the 2011 anti-corruption movement in the country and throbbing with raw idealism, Vickramaditya Motwanis latest Bhavesh Joshi pulsates and swirls trying to channel the anger that most Indians feel about the sordid state of affairs in the country. Its an interesting premise, which takes some time to settle itself down but has enough chutzpah to keep us hooked. ...Read full review
Its easy to see where the cinematic inspirations lie in Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, but director Vikramaditya Motwane spells it out for us anyway. In one scene, the films protagonist tells a wide-eyed girl about Insaaf TV, an amateur vigilante outfit hes founded with a friend to weed out local wrongdoings. We are the Indian Justice League, he says. So youre like Spider-Man? she asks. No, thats Marvel. Were DC Comics darker, edgier, cooler. ...Read full review
