Over the weekend, several eagerly awaited Bollywood and South Indian movies were made available for streaming on various OTT platforms. One such film that garnered significant attention was “Bhediya,” featuring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. Despite not achieving remarkable success at the box office, the movie has finally made its way to the streaming platform. As viewers indulge in the film on JioCinema, reviews have started pouring in.
For the unversed, Bhediya is a comedy horror film directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan. Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon portray pivotal roles in this movie. Interestingly, Bhediya serves as the third installment in Vijan’s horror-comedy universe after Stree and Roohi. The narrative of Bhediya unfolds in the scenic landscapes of Arunachal Pradesh and revolves around a young man named Bhaskar. During a wilderness encounter, Bhaskar is bitten by a wolf, triggering a transformation into a werewolf himself.
During its theatrical release, opinions on the film were divided among the audience. However, now there is an outpouring of praise for the impressive visual effects (VFX) and the incredible performances by the cast. Here’s what Twitter users have to say about it:
#Bhediya ❣️ Simple story but great entertainer + VFX! Beautiful aesthetics and showcases the beauty of North East India. @Varun_dvn was perfect for 🐺. Top-notch transformation scenes. I’m in for any innovation in movies. And … Bhediya-Stree universe?!pic.twitter.com/K6oCr5al1M
Bhediya is quite impressive and the Indian cinema have tried something new because before this movie no one explored the werewolf genre……… The comedy of this film as compared to Stree is not that much affective…….
#Bhediya trending after 1 year of release. When audience don’t support risks taken by filmmakers, and then expect them to make unique and not masala film. And then go and watch masala movies.#SRK recent career is result of this he was supposed to make biopic on Indian astronaut
#Bhediya flopping at BO made me realise that hum saale sirf Flying Jatt ke layak hain bc… good attempts in the fantasy genre cannot be digested by our audience.😔😔 Did not expect to love both #VarunDhawan movies of 2022 so much. JJJ first & now bhediya even more pic.twitter.com/VvDwwFh0CY
I think among the actors who have debuted after 2012, I find Kriti Sanon, the most earnest and graceful. I really liked her performances in Mimi, Bhediya and Bareilly ki Barfi. She can give really amazing performances if offered author-backed characters. pic.twitter.com/zKp0RnizOh
