Bhavesh Joshi Superhero
Vikramaditya Motwane’s vigilante drama Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is not a regular film but deals with a serious issue of corruption in politics. Starring Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead, the movies definitely intrigues with its quirky posters and out of the box concept. It won’t be wrong to call it a revenge drama as the lead actor avenges the death of his friend who gets killed by the politician. The movie is produced by Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena Varma.
Film trade analyst Girish Johar expects the film to collect somewhere around Rs 1.75 crore at the box office.
However, Phamous doesn’t have a big brand name attached to it, the movie speaks high because of the bunch of extremely talented actors in it- Jimmy Sheirgill, Kay Kay Menon and Mahie Gill. The movie is a romantic crime drama that deals with the power struggle between four main characters in the Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh. Directed by Karan Lalit Bhutani and produced by Raj Khatri, Vidisha Productions and Amitabh Chandra, the movie will be the third film shot in Chambal region.
With big films like Veere’ and Bhavesh Joshi’ releasing along with Phantom, it is expected that it will take away a lot of limelight from the movie but good word of mouth can work well for Phamous.
