David Dhawan tries to recreate the tried-and-tested formula with 'Main Tera Hero', although with one difference: Varun Dhawan replaces Govinda.
A timepass of a movie, it can be watched once. Only wish Dhawan had taken some risks rather than sticking to the age-old formula that worked for him eons ago.
Main Tera Hero (MTH) is a glittering vehicle for star son Varun Dhawan to drive, which he does with practiced panache. However, even more than Junior, MTH has his dad David Dhawan stamped all over it.
Main Tera Hero is a pav bhaji picture, quick, spicy, hot. It has the depth of a comic strip but it also has its neon-shaded fun. For those who want a light laugh, here's your boy.
MAIN TERA HERO is a wild, wacky, madcap entertainer that has the unmistakable stamp of the master of entertainers -- David Dhawan. An over the top plot, humor quotient and performances are three aces the film stands on.
The film should work well with admirers of typical Bollywood masalathons, also because Varun Dhawan pulls off the act with flamboyance and bowls you over with an uproarious act in this zany entertainer. Go, have fun and laugh out loud!
Main Tera Hero, directed by David Dhawan, is tone deaf comedy that annoys everyone with a good IQ to the core. Yes, you need to keep you brain at home before watching a comedy but the nature of the genre should not be a license to show anything in the pretense of a movie.
As a movie, Main Tera Hero doesn't work at all. It seems like David Dhawan overestimated the brand value of his son-actor Varun Dhawan who is just one film old.
