Bhediya Movie Review – Performances of the Actors:
Talking about the performance Varun Dhawan as Bhaskar and Bhediya has done his job perfectly well.
He makes a perfect balance between the two contradictory characters. Kriti Sanon has appeared in a different avatar. She, as doctor Anika, plays a crucial role in the movie. Abhishek Banerjee and Deepak Dobriyal are excellent. Abhishek’s comic timing is praiseworthy. Other actors, too, have done a decent job.

Talking about the movie’s
loopholes, the first half of the movie is slow but it gains speed after the interval. The pre-climax of the film seems unoriginal. There are a few questions that remains unanswered.
In the end of the movie, there is an indirect reference to the Stree movie.
