In cricket or in films, scoring a century makes life feel grand! However, just like a stain that once set, doesn’t easily wash away, the same happened with our Sardar Khan, aka Manoj Bajpayee, with his 100th film, Bhaiyya Ji.

Bhaiyya Ji Review

As a dedicated fan of Manoj Bajpayee, expectations were sky-high for Bhaiyya Ji. Entering the theater with great anticipation, I was ready for an exceptional cinematic experience. The movie’s beginning was indeed promising, capturing my attention immediately.

A Promising Start

The film opens with a strong narrative, immediately drawing the audience into the world of Bhaiyya Ji. Manoj Bajpayee’s character commands the screen with his charisma, dialogue delivery, and expressions. His walk, talk, and eyes exuded confidence and pride, making it feel like a nostalgic trip back to the days of Gangs of Wasseypur.

The Predictability Problem

Despite the initial excitement, it quickly became evident that the storyline was quite predictable. Although the plot was clear from the first scene, I was too engrossed in Manoj Bajpayee’s performance to mind initially. His acting prowess was on full display from the very start, reminiscent of his peak performances from 2010. However, as the movie progressed, the predictability of the plot became hard to ignore. About 40-45 minutes into the film, it felt like the scenes were unnecessarily dragged out.

A Significant Turning Point

A significant turning point in the film was when Bhaiyya Ji’s younger brother dies on his wedding day. Manoj’s reaction to this tragic event was commendable, outshining many Bollywood actors with his portrayal of shock and grief. Yet, dedicating 40 minutes to this part of the story felt excessive, causing the narrative to lose its momentum.

The Dragging Plot

As the story continued, the prolonged scenes started testing the audience’s patience. Even though Manoj Bajpayee’s performance was stellar, the lack of engaging action and the extended close-up shots made it difficult to stay invested. The film’s predictability, without any fresh twists, further contributed to the waning interest.

Manoj Bajpayee’s Talent Overshadowed

Despite Manoj’s commendable performance, the movie struggled to maintain interest. Each character performed their role well, but the story’s blandness made it difficult to stay engaged until the interval. Manoj’s efforts in delivering powerful dialogues and action sequences, along with Zoya Hussain‘s support, were noticeable, but not enough to save the film.

In conclusion, Bhaiyya Ji’s predictable and uninspired plot overshadowed Manoj Bajpayee’s incredible performance. As much as it pains me to say, this movie earns just 2 stars from me, solely for Manoj’s dedication and acting skills. Save your money and time; this film doesn’t justify the effort. Instead, relax at home and enjoy a classic Manoj Bajpayee film that truly showcases his talent.
