Public review: Bhaiaji Superhit
Sunny Deol starrer Bhaiaji Superhit released this Friday and received average reviews from the audience. Most of the audience doesn’t like Sunney Deol performance in this movie. Apart from Sunny Deol, Bhaiyaji Superhit stars Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi and Shreyash Talpde.
Such gigs have outlived their shelf life and do little more than humiliate our reminiscence, for a shopworn action hero when a movie stinks as badly as Bhaiaji Superhit.
Sunny Deol does an average job in the double roles. In the role of Funny Singh, his effeminate voice is an ear-sore. Sunny’s action scenes are mass-appealing. Preity Zinta does well as Sapna Dubey. However, her presence in the cast gives away the fact that the film has taken years in the making. It’s been many years since Preity quit acting.
On the whole, Bhaiaji Superhit lacks freshness and will, therefore, not be able to recover its investment. It will fail in the big cities and multiplexes while doing only somewhat better in single-screen cinemas and small centres.
What does a UP Bhaiyya-Gangster do when his beloved wife leaves him? He gets a failed braggart director from Bollywood to make a film on his marital love story to win back his wife. But the real surprise of the show is Preity Zinta, playing a fiery gangster’s no-nonsense wife she manages to avert her urbanity to embrace her loud unpolished jealous wife’s role with lipsmacking relish.
It does get a bit too much at times. But don’t mind. Bhaiaji Deol wants Bhabhiji Zinta back at any cost. All blazing guns and spoofy drama, this is where you want to go this weekend if you looking for some cheesy fun.
Critic’s Rating: 3/5
Times of India
A kind-hearted goon decides to get his wife back by making a film on their love story, while his arch nemesis tries to thwart his plans.
Sunny Deol and Arshad Warsi play their roles well, Ameesha Patel and Shreyas Talpade don’t quite do justice to theirs. Jaideep Ahlwawat and Sanjay Mishra don’t have much to do here either. Preity Zinta, as the feisty wife, too, does justice to her role.If over the top spectacle’s which defy logic, gravity and other rules are your cup of tea, this one’s for you. For the rest, this one is best enjoyed sitting in the barber shop as it plays on the television behind you.
Critic’s Rating – 2/5
Every single character is penned like a caricature but without any underlying chutzpah. There are a bunch of talented actors wasted on the sidelines—Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi, Brijendra Kala, Jaideep Ahlawat—and another two—Shreyas Talpade and Arshad Warsi in relatively more substantial supporting roles.
Bhaiaji Superhit is about these three stars of yore being forced to embrace their own obsolescence. After all, how long can you keep playing on the “dhai kilo ka haath” nostalgia? Bhaiaji Superhit also tells the audience to be wary of incorrectly spelt titles that are a camouflage for utterly exasperating, excruciatingly boring films.
