Subhash Ghai directed Hero with Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri in lead roles. This happened way back in the eighties. Now Nikhil Advani try to recreate the same film with a modern outlook. But the writing with poor dialogues in a listless screenplay doesn’t do any good for the film other than giving the the lead pair of Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty a launchpad in Bollywood. Its not a perfect launching pad but still the couple do gets noticed for their reasonably good performance.
The story is the same that was shown in the original Hero with little changes. Radha is the daughter of IG Shrikanth Mathur. Radha is kidnapped by Sooraj, a goon at the behest of underworld don Pasha. But the couple fall in love pretty quickly and the movie portray the struggles of these young romantic pair to cement their relationship inspite of the tough stance taken against this relationship by their parents.
Actually Radha’s dad is investigating a case involving Pasha while Sooraj is the foster son of Pasha. This makes things more tough for the boy and girl to unite.
Nikhil Advani while remaking the movie added more melodrama into the scenes that backfired. The dialogues didn’t gell well with the scenes and performances apart from the newbies were below par. Towards halfway mark, it was okay for a watch but thereafter only boredom was there in sight.
Sooraj Pancholi (Son of Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab) delivered in the action sequences and also in dancing. On the emoting side, there are scope for improvement but being a debutant, it was acceptable with the performance put up here.
Athiya who is the daughter of actor Sunil Shetty also doesn’t make a bad debut though as an actress she has miles to go. It is to be remembered here that Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri were overnight stars after Hero released but the same success for the modern stars is unlikely to happen though both Sooraj and Athiya were sincere with their efforts.
Aditya Pancholi as Pasha was less menacing with his looks and dialogue delivery. Tigmanshu Dhulia was just about okay as IG and dad of Radha. Vivan Bathena as a late entrant as the antagonist was the better actor among the supporting casts. Though he appear very late in the film, he was able to make a mark.
The only solace in an otherwise lacklustre movie is the way action and dance sequences are choreographed. Cinematography was okay while edits were too sloppy. Background score was notable. Songs which were tuned by Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo were chartbusters those days but in the remake songs could not make much of an impression.
Overall, the new version of Hero other than giving the lead pair gets noticed from the industry bigwigs doesn’t have anything fresh to tell. Recycling story from a distant past to the modern day life had an outdated feel. With a less inspiring presentation, bad direction and over the top drama, Hero fails to provide wholesome entertainment as a romantic action movie. Rating for the movie is two out of five.
