Hero Movie Review

The punchlines like “Ek gunda kya ek IG ki ladki se pyar kar skta hai kya” of the latest release starring Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi in the lead roles will hold your grip throughout the film. It will feel like watching the film again as it is the remake of superhit film with the same name released in 1983 and directed by Subhash Ghai.

However, whosoever clearly remembers the original film will spot many differences. It’s a very different from it.

Usually, films should not be compared but there are always some exceptions which let themselves to be compared with its clan.

It was the music in the original film which let audiences stick to their chairs while the performances of lead star cast is something that will make audiences stick to their seats and make Nikhil Advani’s latest venture bearable.

Sooraj Pancholi essayed the role of a mobster named Sooraj Kaushik, indebted to Pasha, his godfather, to whom he calls Baba with love. On the other hand, Athiya Shetty has played the role of Radha, the love interest of Sooraj. She is the daughter of IG of Police played by Tigmanshu Dhulia as Shrikant Mathur.

Even though, the on-screen chemistry is seen as half-hearted but individually, Sooraj and Athiya impress everyone. They have a sweet charming pair. Having a well-built body, Sooraj seemed to be self-contained while Athiya appears to self-possessed and confident.

Sooraj essayed the role given to him very well whereas Athiya had compatibility problem even after having some of the best dialogues. It may be because of the problem on director’s side.

Tigmanshu Dhulia in the role of a troubled top-cop tried to put his 100% in the character but still felt like a misfit in the overall cast.  Though Aditya Pancholi had a bearded look but still lacked the aura which he should had in the film for portraying the kingpin of underworld Pasha. His dialogue delivery doesn’t make him a threatening underworld kingpin Pasha.


Sharad Kelkar has portrayed the role of IG’s son with assurance and confidence. Probably, he is the only who seemed to have been fit in the character in the whole film star cast. He has played the role of a loving and caring elder brother to his sister Radha. However, Anita Hassanandani who has played Sharad’s wife is kind of a waste one.

Vivan Bhatena who portrayed the antagonist of the film as Prince Rannvijay Shekhawat made his presence felt to everyone even after having a small on-screen time and space. He has executed his role very well with his impish, wicked demeanour grows gradually till it explodes during the action scenes in the climax.

The fight and action sequences are very well choreographed by choreographers. The musicians have also done a good job in synchronising the visuals in terms of beat and tempo. But, the songs are not justified to the simplicity and finesse which the original one had. Moreover, the encore factor is also absent in the latest release.

The director could have been more convincing and detailing with his direction. It would result into a better viewing experience not a silly one.

The film directed by Nikhil Advani advances in terms of technology but lacks behind greatly in terms of scriptwriting. Additionally, the background stories of the characters are shallow and underdeveloped. Adding to the list of bad experiences, the screenplay was also bad and confusing at many times. There were some dramatic scenes but they weren’t successful in creating an emotional impact.


On the whole, the Hero is an average film with average writing except the performances of the characters which was also not of the top-notch quality but could have been better.
