Bhediya Movie Review: It’s a Varun Dhawan film, But with Varun Dhawan, Abhishek Banerjee steals the show.
The film is directed by Amar Kaushik and stars Varun Dhawan, Abhishek Banerjee, Paalin Kabaak, Deepak Dobriyal, Kriti Sanon, Saurabh Shukla Liked Stree & Bala? You’ll enjoy this film of the director as well.
Bhediya, the movie begins with Sharad Kelkar’s character narrating the horrifying story of Bhediya to his daughter. Bhaskar (Varun Dhawan) is a contractor who gets a huge assignment of cutting a road through the jungle in Ziro. After a hilarious yet subtle ‘not knowing northeast enough’ joke cracked at his cousin Janardan (Abhishek Banerjee), Bhaskar shifts to Ziro where he meets his local friend Jobin (Paalin Kabaak).
With the help of Jobin & a local in Panda Ji (Deepak Dobriyal), Bhaskar tries to convince locals to let him cut the forest. But, as they say, if you’d play around with nature, it plays back with you and that’s what happens with Bhaskar when he gets his a** bitten by a Bhediya. Citing Rabies & Rahul Roy from Junoon, Bhaskar too turns into a wolf on a full moon day who then tries to destroy his project. How will he get treated? Will he fight the ‘Bhediya’ in him to finish the project he has taken responsibility for? That and more form the main crux of the story.
All said and done, Bhediya delivers what it promises – hilarious one-liners, classy VFX, a few jump scares & good performances but if you go looking beyond those promises, you won’t find anything substantial to add.
