Bhaiyya Ji Review: A Misguided Rampage

Bhaiyya Ji Review


Bhaiyya Ji, directed by Apoorv Singh Karki and starring Manoj Bajpayee in his 100th film, attempts to be a gritty revenge saga but ends up as a cringe-worthy spectacle. The film is a cacophony of violence, clichés, and unintentional comedy.

Ram Charan (Manoj Bajpayee), a former Robin Hood-like figure known as “Bhaiyya Ji,” lives a quiet life in Bihar. When his younger brother Vedant is killed by a politician’s son, Ram Charan’s grief transforms into a thirst for vengeance. Armed with a shovel and a vendetta, he sets out to take down the corrupt and powerful.

What Works:

  • Manoj Bajpayee: Despite the film’s flaws, Bajpayee’s commitment to the role shines through. His transformation from a meek middle-class man to a vengeful force is commendable.
  • Whistle-Worthy Dialogues: The film occasionally delivers punchy lines that resonate with the audience.

What Could Be Better:

  • Weak Story: The premise of revenge is predictable and lacks depth. The film fails to explore its characters beyond surface-level stereotypes.
  • Over-the-Top Moments: Every scene is exaggerated to the point of absurdity. From fiery explosions to CGI animals, Bhaiyya Ji pushes the boundaries of campiness.
  • Melodrama: The film succumbs to melodrama, turning tragedy into unintentional comedy. The villain’s antics and the father-son duo’s evil deeds are cringe-inducing.

Bhaiyya Ji misses the mark by a wide margin. Manoj Bajpayee’s valiant effort can’t salvage a poorly executed script. If you’re a fan of mindless action and can overlook glaring flaws, you might find some entertainment here. Otherwise, proceed with caution.
