We had to wait for decades before we got a black superhero in form of Black Panther. With superhero being the buzzword, India has come with its own new superhero. But the question is: are we ready for this?
Director Vikramaditya Motwane’s film ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ gave us a sneak peek at its teaser and at first glance the poster totally reminds us of the Netflix blockbuster, ‘Daredevil’. We know the comparison is a little too far-fetched, yet we are gonna go ahead with it, because hey, it IS close, right?
The 85-second teaser, which quickly gained momentum on Instagram, stars Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead. It starts with a voice-over which no doubt got us completely hooked. Call him a crusader or a fighter, he is here to fix things and that is the first actual takeaway from the teaser. An ordinary man by day and a crime-fighting vigilante by night? Count us in!
Action-packed fight sequences, a glow-in-the-dark mask, bikes with turbo jets and a cliffhanger of an end sequence—the teaser (which almost seemed to us like a trailer) had plenty to bite into if you’re into superhero movies.
In a country where we have seen superhero movies like ‘Krrish’, and ‘Flying Jatt’, Bollywood is yet to make a film that not just kids but even the adult audience can relate to.
Could this be the first real superhero movie? Only time will tell. But, what we can decipher from the teaser is that this is unlike most commercial superhero movies we’ve seen in the past. Well, to begin with there’s no Tiger shroff or Hrithik Roshan flying around in funny costumes and dancing with exotic actresses in remote mountains. So, full marks for the packaging and the visuals!
‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ is Harshvardhan Kapoor’s second movie after his debut film ‘Mirzya’ tanked miserably at the box office, leaving many stunned and disappointed at the same time. Maybe, it was the mere fact that people expected a lot more from Anil Kapoor’s son.
The movie will hit the screens on May 25, 2018, and it would be interesting to see how this one performs at the box-office.
