So before you book tickets, let’s figure out who won the show and who loses it.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero
Cast: Harshvardhan Kapoor, Priyanshu Painyuli, Nishikant Kamat
Director: Vikramaditya Motwane
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is the story of a Desi superhero in Bhavesh Joshi starring Harshvardhan Kapoor. The film is the journey of a group of three college friends, portrayed by Harshvardhan Kapoor, Priyanshu Painyuli & Ashish Verma, who are more socially conscious than others. The friends take this more seriously and starts intervening in local issues, but eventually things escalate and start getting terribly wrong. One of them dies while trying to reveal a corrupt plot at the hands of a local politician. The other is then left to choose his destiny.
Vikramaditya Motwane is the man behind the gems such as Udaan, Lootera and Trapped has once again done his job perfectly. The Mirzya actor Harshvardhan Kapoor has improved his acting since his last release. Priyanshu Painyuli and Nishikant Kamat’s part is appreciated.
Unlike Krrish or A Flying Jutt that can only impress children, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is intense and darker. He cannot fly, doesn’t have fancy gadgets, magic ring, but is a homegrown superhero. The journey of a common man to turn out to be a warrior is the thing that creates a superhero and the film has captured it sincerely. The film is indeed a mature presentation of genuine concern. Vikramaditya Motwane and Harshvardhan Kapoor’s this movie is a must watch film.
Veere Di Wedding
Director: Shashanka Ghosh
Cast: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker, Shikha Talsania, Sumeet Vyas, Manoj Pahwa, Vivek Mushran and others
Veere Di Wedding is the story of four protagonists who are struggling with different problems in their life.

Sakshi is a free-spirited girl who is on verge of getting divorced from her dominating husband. Meera is busy in raising her little kid and happily settled with her husband John while her Sikh family is against her marriage.
The film was speculated to be a Pyaar Ka Punchnama from a woman’s perspective, rather it is a woman version of Chahata Hai. Kareena Kapoor has all the spotlight in the film and she performed her part well too. While Sonam Kapoor Ahuja repeats herself from Aisha, I Hate Love Story and Khoobsurat. Swara and Shikha are the stealer of the show. They both beg the best dialogues and delivered them well. Sumeet Vyas is spontaneous, believable and real.
This is simply a one time watch popcorn entertainment movie that will beat your weekend blues.
