Sunny Deol starrer Bhaiyyaji Superhit (Bhaiaji Superhit) released this Friday and received mixed reviews from the critics. Although there is hardly any hype for this film, and the expectations are not high too, some of the critics are not disappointed by the movie, if not too impressed.
Directed by Neerraj Pathak, Bhaiyyaji Superhit features Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi and Shreyas Talpade in the lead.
According to the initial reviews from critics, the comedy-drama has some good punch-lines along with a couple of humorous moments, which are well enough to make the audience laugh and relax.
However, there are a few others who found the film to be a waste despite having a powerful star cast.
Check what the critics said about Bhaiyyaji Superhit:
News18: This is a loud colourful over-the-top homage to hoary tradition of Bollywood's formula films where the outrageous met the melodramatic without mishap. A lot happens in Bhaiaji Superhit. You know you are in this for the sense of unbridled reckless adventure. 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.
SpotboyE: Heart bled for Sunny whose glorious moments under the sun in Bollywood are countless. Heart bled for Preity who has been not just pretty good but impressive in her selections and histrionics. Heart bled for Ameesha who started with a bang opposite Hrithik Roshan and scored quite a few brownies before she almost disappeared from the scene. This film was lying in a dabba for 5 years, why did it see the light of day to blot the profiles of this lovable trio?
Times of India: 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.
Hindustan Times: Bhaiaji Superhit is a good laugh. The chase sequences are punctuated not only with machine-guns but actual grenades, and the climax invokes the ultimate movie cliché: a girl tied to train-tracks. Yet there's constantly something worth enjoying in this film that refuses to moralise at the very end, and it is often the leading man — hapless, hilarious and never trying too hard. They could have called this movie Philadelphia, because it really is always Sunny.
Times Now: A lot of inconsistency, and a lot of stupidity. And did I tell you the movie is sexist and misogynistic as well? The music is awful. Who approved Bhaiaji title track? To be fair to the makers and the film, I did laugh at all of two scenes in the film. One, when "actor" Sunny tries to dance and the "don" Sunny takes offence, Arshad Warsi's reaction and Sunny's dance itself is hilarious. And the second time when Arshad Warsi mocks Shreyas Talpade saying you didn't write this scene, no wonder I am enjoying it...or something on these lines. Overall, avoid Bhaiaji Superhit.
The Indian Wire: All in all the film has spoofy drama and harmless comedy and if you want to just relax and laugh, 'Bhaiaji Superhit', will give you both.
RJ Alok: So @iamsunnydeol 's Action and @ArshadWarsi 's Humorous Punches are the ONLY good thing about #bhaiyyajisuperhit. Its TOTAL waste of such very useful talents.
Latestly: Is there a possibility that Bhaiaji Superhit could have been a good film? If it had been properly edited, directed, and with better technical values. You get the point, right? What Bhaiaji Superhit has as its strength is germ of a good comedy film and a fine array of talented supporting cast with a great comic potential, that is totally wasted here.
Subhash K Jha: #bhaiajisuperhit.wh en gangsterism meets giggles all hell breaks loose...this is one rollicking ride through the heartland.zany goofy outrageous. 3 stars.
