Hero Review

The movie lacks in two departments, direction and editing. Certain flaws like look of Sooraj being different in a continuous shot and abrupt scene changes make us question their editing skills. Nikhil could have paid more attention and covered up all the goof ups and silly flaws.

Its' a known aspect that Hero is an old wine in new bottle but is it worth drinking this new wine? A one time sip only! Hero is a one time watch movie with nothing worth getting a special mention, apart from Salman Khan's song!


Hero is a delectable synthesis of startling onscreen beauty, dazzling high octane action, melodious music and merry froth. Each frame of the film has been done up with care which is evident in its striking visuals.

For its 132 minutes' crisp runtime, Hero offers bucketful of entertainment and victoriously conveys that commercial movies needn't be puerile to show people a good time.

So, when the hero rides his bike with his ladylove strapped tightly behind him across a broken bridge you know where this is headed.

While such daring stunts worked for Salman Khan when he had burst onto the scene with his mushy romance ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, today the formula appears outdated and unoriginal. It’s no longer about leather jackets or six-pack abs or (absurd) let’s-lock-our-eyes-and-fall-in-love moments.

Advani’s ‘Hero’ ends up a lengthy, unimaginative remake. Stay away, if you prefer movies that are easy on our senses.
