For this film, Varun Dhawan is a brand on which the story is sold, however, the acting of side casts like Abhishek Banerjee has actually sold the film to you. Though, the worst part of this film is the weak motive that tries to connect everything well. If you have enjoyed Bala and Stree, you will definitely enjoy this.
The tale of this film starts with Sharad Kelkar narrating the story of ‘Bhediya’ to his daughter, in a way teasing what will come next. Bhaskar, the lead played by Varun gets a big assignment from a contractor to cut down the roads through the jungle in Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh.
Abhishek Banerjee as Janardan warned him that he doesn’t know the northeast enough and that if you play with nature, it will play back with him, then the incident happened Bhaskar got bitten by a wolf aka Bhediya on his back.
Like every werewolf, Bhaskar too turns into a wolf on a full moon day who tries to destroy his own project. The crux of the narration is what will happen to the road project. What is his purpose of him after turning into a werewolf?
Varun Dhawan in the lead role carries out the movie on his shoulder and did simply fantastic in the transformation scenes. Whereas Kriti Sanon has limited screen time, however, her character brings a new element as the story progresses.
On the other side, Abhishek Banerjee is hilarious and lifts the movie’s temp with his unique dialogue delivery. Deepak Dobriyal is mainly dependable as Panda, whereas Saurabh Shukla has less scope in the story. There is a surprise for the audiences at the end of the film, where RajKummar Rao and Aparshakti Khurana cameo in the final scene.
Bhediya has prime strength of gags, visual effects, and performances, but too has a bigger conflict with regard to a hero and villain in the second half of the film. Despite the flaws, it’s a fairly entertaining film to watch for the youth, and families, who wish to experience something unique on the big screen from the Bollywood Industry.
