What It’s About: A remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1983 film of the same name, Hero is the story of Sooraj, a reformed rebel who falls for Radha, a police officer’s daughter. All in all, Hero is a throwback to the 80s and 90s Bollywood where love, separation and pining were the central themes. Will this Hero have a happy ending? Only time will tell.
Why You Shouldn’t Miss This One: To be honest, Hero looks like a very run-of-the-mill story. Newcomers Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty seem to have done a decent enough job, so one could decide to watch it for them. The one song that we hear in the trailer isn’t all that impressive so music probably isn’t a plus either. This will definitely not appeal to fans of the original Hero (starring Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri).
