Bhavesh Joshi Superhero

Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is a 2018 Indian Hindi-language vigilante action thriller film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane under Phantom Films banner and co-written by Motwane along with Anurag Kashyap and Abhay Koranne. It stars Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead role along with Priyanshu Painyuli, Ashish Verma and Nishikant Kamat in the supporting roles. The film revolves around a successful vigilante group that fades away with time but resurfaces when one of its members discovers the theft of water by a local politician and his henchmen. This was Nishikant Kamat's last film as actor before his death in 2020.


Three young boys, Bhavesh Joshi(Priyanshu Painyuli), Sikandar "Siku" Khanna (Harshvardhan Kapoor) and Rajat (Ashish Verma), meet with each other in an anti-corruption rally and befriend each other. They later come up with a YouTube channel Insaaf TV, creating an online show about insaaf (justice), trying to expose to people some common wrongdoings and corruption which are rampant in the city. Initially, their show garners success, where they, wearing paper-bag masks, help to solve or confront some small scale corruptions in and around their neighborhood. Time soon flies; Siku and Rajat get jobs at the corporate sector after passing out from college. Their interest for Insaaf TV gradually fades out except for Bhavesh, who gets obsessed about eradicating corruption from society and continues with his vigilante acts, despite a fall in their channel viewership.
