Main Tera Hero: Film Review

By Sayantan Dalal

Film: Main Tera Hero

Cast: Varun Dhawan, Nargis Fakhri, Ileana D'Cruz

Director: David Dhawan

Rating: ***

What's it about:

Seenu (Varun Dhawan) moves to Bangalore for college only to find himself head over heels in love with Sunaina (Ileana D'Cruz). But Sunaina is already engaged to policeman Angad (Arunoday Singh). And while Seenu gets busy dealing with Angad, comes a twist in the tale! Sunaina gets kidnapped by Ayesha (Nargis Fakhri), the daughter of a druglord (Anupam Kher)!

Main Tera Hero is a typical Summer popcorn movie, David Dhawan style. The director refrains from going back to his Chashme Baddoor style comedy, and instead sticks to his safe zone - Govinda era films. Be it the jokes or imitations of other stars, Main Tera Hero will remind you of those typical David Dhawan films you saw back in the 90's. The difference? – modern set-up, bikini babes else!

Even though Varun Dhawan brings his larger than life character to vivid and surprisingly dimensional life, he gets let down by the lame script. Some of the scenes are so repetitive that it dulls the film's edge that is meant to be penetrating.

For all the film's lapses, uneven acting and dramatic tailspins, some elements like the songs, Anupam Kher and Saurabh Shukla's funny banter and Varun and Ileana's chemistry work well.

David Dhawan uses his old school trickery to showcase his son Varun's talent, but he can't perk up a stultifying script by Milap Zaveri. This stings because there's nothing to distract you from a plot so tired that there are track marks from other Govinda-Dhawan collaborations all over it!

So decide for yourself if the film averages out to serve more than a comic interest, and it will be helpful if you leave behind your logic at home when you watch the movie.

What to do:

It will get you a laugh or two, but you won't be missing out on a lot, if you choose to skip Main Tera Hero over Captain America.
