Sunny Deol’s last two films, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se and Mohalla Assi failed miserably at the box-office and the actor has failed to redeem himself with his latest release, Bhaiaji Superhitt as it’s worse than his previous two movies.

Set in Varanasi, the film revolves around Lal Bhaisahab Dubey aka 3D (Sunny Deol), a crime lord with a heart of gold. In a fit of jealousy, his wife Sapna (Preity Zinta) leaves him and he decides to make a film on their love story to win over his lady love. What ensues then is a comedy of errors.
Sunny Deol needs to reinvent himself or just make peace with sitting behind the camera as these films are not doing him any good. He has done great disservice to his illustrious career by releasing this long-delayed movie. Though Sunny Deol has a pleasant personality, we have got bored seeing him do such roles and if one Sunny wasn’t enough to tolerate, he also has a doppelganger in the movie. Yes, he has a double role and sadly, both his avatars fail to impress.

Preity Zinta is a complete misfit and her accent, like Sunny’s, keeps coming and going. This role is a far-cry from the kind of roles that she has earlier played and we wish she hadn’t chosen to do it. Ameesha Patel is playing an actress and she looks as clueless in the movie as we were looking at her. No wonder she refused to promote it.

The film has some fantastic actors like Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade, Pankaj Tripathi, Mukul Dev, Sanjay Mishra, Jaideep Ahlawat and Brijendra Kala to name a few and while they have given fabulous performances as usual, the script fails them. They all have half-baked characters and most of them disappear without any logical explanation.
The film is a spoof and a bad one at that. The script has too many loopholes and is very loose. Characters keep coming in and going out in this senseless comedy. Aakash Pandey’s story is banal and trite and the execution too is poor. Neerraj Pathak failed to lift this film with his direction. The music is annoying and the dialogues are corny.

All in all, Bhaiaji Superhitt is a yawn-fest which we wish could have remained canned forever.
