Bhaiaji Superhit: A mess of a movie

Bhaiaji Superhit

Hindi (U/A)

Cast: Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade

Director: Neerraj Pathak

Rating: Half star

Sunny Deol plays a slaughterhouse. Iron Man, Spider-Man, Aquaman, X-Men... his Bhaiaji is all men rolled into one. 

At times, the 'Uttar Pradesh ke Superman' causes climate change. The moment Deol sets foot, a dust storm builds around his steps (Thunderfoot anyone?). Showers are at his beck and call (add Rainman to the list).

But none of these stunts help Mr Marvel when he pits his wits against the greatest opponent on earth — his wife Preity Zinta (in a yawn of a comeback). She is a mutant nightmare, serving ample headache to Deol with her doubting ways. The woman has her fangs out for any other woman who falls within the radius of Bhaiaji, her sole possession.

One fine day, Zinta stomps off. Good riddance? Deol decides to make a movie to win her back!

That brings in Arshad Warsi, a director who works best with a writer called Porno Ghosh (Shreyas Talpade, fifty shades of duh). The two rope in Ameesha Patel, a Rs 3-crore heroine (hardly there, with clothes that are barely there).

All this while, our terminator deploys various ways to send hundreds to the outer space. Iron bars, tractor, earthmover, coconuts... and the dhai kilo ka haath, of course. And as if one wasn't enough, another Deol barges in midway. Double role, terrible deal.

At the end of two and a half hours of pure mess, Zinta decides to showcase her martial skills. And our man gets his Wonder Woman. 

Now, it's another wonder if one survives to tell the tale.
