A wave of change in Indian cinema
3 June 2018 | by priyanshu281994See all my reviews

With all the dumb things being shown in Indian movies, it was time that they bring out something new. When I saw the trailer, I was very eager to see the movie and the movie didn't disappoint me. It is a slow, well written start to a very good , maybe even awesome superhero movie series. Looks like India finally has a superhero. A hint of sequel has been given at the last when the title changes from Bhavesh Joshi to Bhavesh Joshi superhero. Nishikant kamat once again slays. Vikramaditya Motwane is seen bringing a change in the Indian cinema. But yes, this superhero, we don't really deserve. There are 20 shows a day running for a dumb movie like veere di wedding and just 4-5 shows for Bhavesh Joshi. This movie definitely needs to reach the audience.
