A few days back Avengers Infinity War got released and in a matter of days, it has garnered so much at the box office that we couldn’t imagine. In last decade or so the number of superhero movies has increased and there seems to be no stopping. The reason behind it is apparent, that these movies make up for good entertainment and gets a shit load of money. However, unlike Hollywood, we haven’t got a superhero character that shines out bright not only because of good CGI but a solid story that makes the audience go wow. Bollywood has tried their hand at superhero movies with Krissh and Ra.One but, on the whole, they weren’t able to change the dynamics of filmmaking like it did in Hollywood. So, now the filmmaker, Anurag Kashyap, known for giving extraordinary stories is bringing an Indian superhero. Last month we got the glimpse of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero movie with a sleek teaser and spectacular poster.
Ahead of its release the Phantom Films has revealed a full-fledged trailer that takes us deep into the story of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. Vikramaditya Motwane is helming the film who is known for giving both critically acclaimed, and the audience loved movies like Udaan and Trapped. The best thing about these movies is that viewers are able to relate to them. Now with Bhavesh Joshi, the talented director has ventured into new territory, but he is the one person in India who can pull this off magnificently. And the trailer is the solid proof that brilliance.
The trailer introduces us to three friends out which one is writing a graphic novel on the Mumbai’s first superhero who fights against corruption in the society. The two friends then dawn the paper bag masks and start stopping people from doing illegal activities. Soon things spiral out, and one of the friends is killed by the politician whose real face they were trying to reveal in front of the public. The other friend played by Harshvardhan Kapoor dawns the mask and prepares himself for battle against corrupt police and politicians. The action scenes in the dark with a fantastic background score are the highlight of this trailer.
Talking about the story, it is quite linear, but it will be interesting to see how Vikramaditya Motwane brings it to the silver screen. As the leading character doesn’t have any superpowers so another central area to focus upon is the hand to hand combat scenes as they will play a significant role in the action-packed story. Already people are comparing the action sequences with the hit Marvel TV series Daredevil, and that’s a great feat to achieve. The other challenge that stands in front of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is that lately so many superhero movies have been released and it will take something unique to differ from the long list. With great filmmakers behind this one the milestone can be easily achieved, and we are seriously thrilled to watch it in theatres on May 25th.
