HERO as we know is the remake of 1983’s HERO starring Jackie Shroff. The film is modern in terms of its look and treatment of characters but still unlike the original one, this one lacks that small punch required in terms of dialouges, script or acting.

Zoya has a great taste for locations and style in her every film and this one is no exception. She also has a great understanding of human emotions and portrays all the multi-layered characters, their thoughts, their confusions very well. The film also shows how superficial some relations are and how we try to maintain double-standards at times just for the sake of society. The film is all about high-society people so not everyone might relate to it at some point.
Anil Kapoor denies to age!! He looks terrific as a suave businessman. Shefali Shah as Anil’s typical Punjabi wife plays per part honestly.
Priyanka Chopra is stunning. Right from her acting to looks to dialogues, she simply nails it.
Ranveer Singh is a complete revelation. He is very natural and a complete delight to watch in his dry comic scenes. Not to forget, his urban look is impressive.
Anushka Sharma has a small role but plays it well. She looks beautiful too.
Farhan Akhtar has a small witty role and his spontaneity is bang on. Rahul Bose fits well into his character and pulls it off with finace.
The dog Pluto is very very cute and endearing!
Final Verdict – Zoya Akhtar’s opulent high-society drama impresses.
Ratings – 3.5/5
