Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 3/5
All said and done, Motwane breaks into new territories with his innovative take on superhero films. Bhavesh Joshi Superhero has its heart in the right place and its tone is totally indigenous ... Full Review

Neil Soans | Times of India: 3.5/5
It doesn’t entirely succeed, but Vikramaditya Motwane’s take on the superhero genre is worth a look ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
The film 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 ... Full Review

Kunal Guha | Mumbai Mirror: 2.5/5
This one had the potential to be the surprise hit of the year. Sadly, it’s too dark for a superhero film and yet distinctly flaky to be taken seriously ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
Impressive, Admirable Attempt at Creating Middle-class Superhero in Real World, but it’s also bloated and indulgent ... Full Review

Raja Sen | NDTV: 2/5
The vigilante film is well meaning and has good actors, but it is ultimately a boring effort ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 1.5/5
BHAVESH JOSHI SUPERHERO is a poor show owing to its haphazard writing and bad direction ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5
A Hero We Neither Deserve Nor Need! All said and done, when you've a good intent to make a film you also need a strong story to back it ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
In the film the issue feels too flat and tame. Somewhere Motwane gets too self-aware and conscious-be it the genre of superhero cinema he is playing with or the issue of corruption itself. The point gets belaboured and the film too protracted ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 3/5
There is much to like here - the atmospherics, Painyuli's performance that is notches above Kapoor's, and Motwane's feel for noir, but his home-grown hero still falls short. Hopefully this will be a franchise ... Full Review

Sreehari Nair | Rediff: 1.5/5
And the danger of an ideologue telling its story is evident in the many dramatic problems of Bhavesh Joshi ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | FirstPost: 2.5/5
The film's flaw is that it's trying to say too much and doing so at such a painful pace that much of a good intention is lost in execution ... Full Review

Harshada Rege | DNAIndia: 2.5/5
This vigilante fails to save the day. Poor execution of a good story overshadows noble intentions ... Full Review

Lakshana N Palat | India Today: 3/5
The crusader we need. Harshvardhan proves his mettle as an actor in his second Bollywood outing. Watch the film for its story ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 2/5
Mumbai’s dark knight can’t rise to the occasion, is caught in a peculiar bind: it's a bit too competent to be dismissed, but not original or striking enough to dispel the feeling that it's all been done before ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2/5
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero works beautifully until the interval point before gradually losing its way to laboured plotting, implausible twists and banal moralising ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 2/5
Bollywood gets another superhero to laugh. It is enjoyable in parts but you won’t lose out on anything if you miss this one, rather watch any superhero flick from DC or Marvel ... Full Review

Roshan H Nair | Deccan Herald: 3.5/5
Bhavesh Joshi may be the best Indian superhero yet ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5
Except the non-superhero on the screen, like the movie itself, merely moves around in convenient circles, and head-splitting cliches ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
The film flirted with the concept of a common man being influenced by graphic novels and superhero movies to become a vigilante...it makes a case for a proper superhero origins film ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 2/5
To call Bhavesh Joshi Superhero a lost opportunity is a gross understatement. To compare it to the other genre misfires from this country would be a disservice to its aspirational tone ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 3/5
An inspiring embodiment. A bold exercise in the liberation of the vigilante-superhero drama, in Indian Cinema ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 2/5
Vikramaditya Motwane Fails To Do 'Insaaf' To A Fascinating Concept! ... Full Review

Sriram Iyengar | Cinestaan: 2/5
A good vigilante story let down by weak plot, dispassionate acting ... Full Review

Aswathy Gopalakrishnan | Silver Screen: 3/5
This Next-Door Superhero Is Flawed, Yet Intriguing ... Full Review

Reshu Manglik | India TV: 2/5
Harshvardhan Kapoor tries to save Mumbai and the film as well, but in vain! Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap deserve a shoutout for this brave attempt ... Full Review

Economic Times: 3.5/5
Vikramaditya Motwane reminds you that heroes are only human. The desi superhero sans the frills deserves a watch ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 2.5/5
Harshvardhan Kapoor character Sikander is a timid follower of Bhavesh Joshi who fails to take it off the way he should have for the benefit of the movie, the audience, the genre and for himself ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3/5
Bhavesh Joshi is not perfect but a compelling character no doubt ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 2/5
The over-stretched thriller is also a stark reminder of the troubled times we live with mob justice and digital warriors shaping public opinion ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 1/5
The problem with the film is its total disconnect with the audience. Questions about common sense and logic, plausibilities and absurdities can be asked – this is without exaggeration – a few dozen times ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 3/5
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is Vikramaditya Motwane’s political statement towards a generation that democracy is one place where you should fight for justice as it ensures that ... Full Review

Johnson Thomas | Free Press Journal: 3/5
But for the ably dark camerawork, assuredly complementary background score and poignant performances of Priyanshu Painyuli and Ashish Verma, this would have been a largely listless effort ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 2/5
The third act of the film is essentially a lesson in misdirection ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2/5
A good set-up – is all you get. After the first hour it goes from mediocre to worse ... Full Review
