Bhavesh Joshi, Movie Review: Harshvardhan Kapoor Sails Through Troubled Waters

Bhavesh Joshi was not easy for Harshvardhan Kapoor. He told us that the failure of Mirzya still bothers him (Watch out for that interview late in the night today). There must have been immense pressure on this young man to deliver a noteworthy performance. Does he fail? No.

Earnest to prove a point, Harshvardhan throws himself into his superhero character and puts his best foot forward. You feel for him when he joins the YouTube trio, you feel for him when he breaks apart, you feel for him when he rejoins to take revenge--- you relate to him.


Howsoever he may deny, but the film is clearly Vikramaditya Motwane's angst against various things- our poor civic sense, our utter disregard for traffic rules, our inability to raise our voice against the water shortage we experience so often and lots more. So, Vikramaditya's heart is thumping loudly when Harshavardhan aided by his two friends Ashish Verma and Priyanshi Painyuli locks horns with defaulters of such kind.


However, this fourth product from Motwane's stable makes you feel Motwane could have fleshed out the story better. There are very few twists and turns in this vigilante flick which also feels long, especially owing to its long drawn-out fight sequences. And there was certainly no need of that cheesy Chavanprash number in a dance bar. Aur haan, why so much of blue and green lighting from the first scene to the last?


Ashish and Priyanshu both put in a sincere performance. However, Nishikanth Kamath who plays the corrupt politician responsible for changing the trio's lives, is lacklustre.

I am going with THREE.
