The much awaited remake of Subhash Ghai’s Superhit movie ‘Hero’ releases today. There has been a lot of fuss about the movie for the two young celebrity kids, Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty mark the beginning of their Bollywood career with this project, Salman Khan has produced the movie and has even sung the title track!
The movie portrays Sooraj Pancholi as a mobster with character, who is indebted to his godfather Pasha, whom he lovingly calls ‘Baba’. Athiya Shetty plays his love interest Radha, the daughter of Inspector General of Police Shrikant Mathur, played by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
The fight and the dance sequences are well-choreographed. And the background score is perfectly synchronised with the visuals in terms of beat and tempo. But unfortunately, the songs don't match the simplicity and finesse of the original and they lack the encore factor.
With excellent production values, Nikhil Advani's film, though technically advanced, seems poorly executed in terms of writing. Less thought have been given towards the background stories of the characters and therefore they lack substance. While most of the scenes are superbly dramatic, they unfortunately do not create an emotional impact.
However, we cannot deny the acting skills of the talented new comers Sooraj and Athiya, only if much thought would have been given to the story and the scenes of the two on screen, rather than the physical appearances, the movie would surely have been much better.
We just wish the two all the best for the movie and lots of good luck for their later projects.
And, you, yes you! Don’t just judge the movie by the reviews, you’ve got to watch it first to criticize or appreciate. Right?
