Rating: ⭐️⭐️ ½
After Mohalla Assi released last week, another action-star Sunny Deol starrer Bhaiaji Superhit, which got stuck for various reasons for about 7 years, has finally hit the theaters. The film is smeared with the flavors of comedy and action and Sunny with a wide star-cast is all set to bring a smile on your face. Let’s find out how successful his efforts have been in this long-awaited drama.
Bahubali don Lal Bhai Sahab Dubey (Sunny Deol) is not like dons seen in our films. He does what he wants to do. Bhaiaji is neither cruel nor he shoots bullets and kills innocent people. On the contrary, Bhaiaji has only one dream; to become a superstar of Hindi films. In order to fulfill this dream, Bhaiaji is ready to do anything. But Bhaiaji’s wife Sapna Dube (Preity Zinta) senses something else and starts doubting him.
One day, Bhaiaji leaves for Mumbai and meets Goldie Kapoor (Arshad Warsi) and Tarun Ghosh (Shreyas Talpade), who trains him to be a hero, but Bhaiaji acts in his own style because he hates fake action. Now, you can understand what Bhaiaji will do as a hero. Here, he meets Mallika (Ameesha Patel) who falls head over heels in love with Bhaiaji. Does he become a hero? Does Mallika find her love? You have to meet Bhaiaji to know this.
Screenplay and Dialogues
Penned by Neeraj Pathak, the script, as well as the screenplay of the film, turns out to be mediocre. It could have been much better if he had restricted himself making it a dish with end number of spices. If too many cooks can spoil a dish, elements after a certain degree can turn into a disaster.
Although, a few dialogues of Bhaiaji really drive you to laugh. Especial mention of the presence of Arshad Warsi and Shreyas Talpade. They add much entertainment value to the otherwise mindless drama.
Neeraj Pathak is doubly responsible for driving the film to such a blah end as he is the writer-director of the film. There are times when a director pulls off even an average script so brilliantly that it turns out to be engaging on the screen, but nothing that sort of took place here because it seems that Neeraj Pathak’s aim was to include everything to allure the audience. And that’s where the whole drama ended sinking in the deep.
Sunny Deol could not also ignite any spark to this averagely written film. He puts himself into the shoes of a playful and soft-hearted don seamlessly. Sunny, in his double role, uses the female vocal, which doesn’t suit his rough-and-tough and action-driven image. We must mention the duo Arshad Warsi and Shreyas Talpade who bring a gust of humor to the drama and offers you some light-hearted moments during the strained duration. Preity Zinta and Ameesha Patel are OK in their limited roles. The film has a rich star cast and all have done their part well.
Average music hits another nail in the coffin. No song you actually remember after coming out of the theater. The background score also fails to enhance its comical moments.
Why Should You Watch?
Sunny Deol’s die-hard fans can take up the risk to go for this comedy. The rest look for other sources of entertainment at home.
