Hero Movie Review

Cast: Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Aditya Pancholi
Director: Nikhil Advani

Hero Movie Plot:

This being a remake movie of the 1983 hit of the same name directed by Subhash Ghai, the story is pretty much the same.

Radha (Athiya Shetty), the daughter of IG meets Sooraj (Sooraj Pancholi), a typical gunda at a pub . Pasha (Aditya Pancholi) is a criminal whose case Radha's dad is handling, so Pasha asks Sooraj to kidnap Radha.

Pasha is Sooraj's mother's rakhi brother. Sooraj pretends to be a police officer and kidnaps her during which they end up falling in love and later she finds out that he was a goon and that she was actually kidnapped.

On her request and for her love, he surrenders and ends up getting jailed for 2 years but still he doesn't give up the name of Pasha. Unfortunately Pasha doesn't know that and feels Sooraj betrayed him and is bent upon revenge.

On the other side, Radha's father is also against the union of his daughter and Sooraj. How the couple fight against all the odds, prove their true love and clear all the misunderstanding, forms the crux of the story.

Hero Movie Review By Audience Response (Live) : First Day First Show


Sooraj is blessed with great looks but somewhere he lets us down with his acting prowess. In the 1983 film, Jackie has clearly shown the difference of a goon in the first half and lover boy in the second, which Sooraj has failed to do! A little more effort from him would have been better. His action scenes though are applaud worthy.

Athiya on the other had tried to give her best. Her efforts at acting are seen , which makes us feel that she is capable of doing more.

Tigmanshu Dhulia and Aditya Pancholi have performed well and done justice to their roles. Sharad Kelkar is seen in the role of Athiya's brother in the movie and he too has given a decent performance.


The cinematography of the movie is brilliant and definitely a high point. 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.

Also the movie seems like an added effort in showing the lead actors and the entire movie has taken a back-seat.


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!
