Our verdict

"Bhavesh Joshi Superhero clearly intends to be dark, edgy and cool. Trouble is, it spends too much of its time underlining its purpose, even getting a character to say these three adjectives—out loud– forgetting that part of the secret of being dark, edgy and cool is never to describe yourself thus. That prerogative belongs to the viewers," The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review of the film.

Our verdict

Parts of the film are engaging, but overall, it suffers from having too much to say and not quite sure of how to say it, and oh, while we are at it, why don’t we just bung in an item number. Which is quite cool, by the way, but again, it is tried-and-tested territory. There is a film in here. Or should I say, would have been, if Bhavesh Joshi Superhero had been less of a cobbled-together-from-many-influences overlong yarn. And fresher, sharper, clearer.
