Produced under Salman Khan’s banner Hero tries to show that love can grow in the faultlines. Like a lot of usual Salman films this too opens with an action sequence and body show of Sooraj Pancholi. After the first few minutes the story can easily be foreseen by the viewers.
A strechted love story between the lead pair begins right after from the start. Sooraj is a good hearted goon while Radhaa is a police officer’s daughter. So you know that love and drama comes in a package.
To cut the long tale short, Radha is kidnapped by Sooraj because Radha’s father is fighting against a corrupt politican Pasha (Aditya Pancholi), who in retaliation assigns the task of kidnapping Radha to Sooraj. But all the hell breaks loose when they fall in love. (Apparently, there is an emotional connection between Pasha and Sooraj which breaks as the love deepens.) Sooraj then embarks on a journey of becoming a better person under the influence of his love to impress Radha’s family. The love story just doesn’t fix things for Sooraj and Radha but also improves the bad man Pasha at the end.
The film basically works on the same cliched formula which may have worked in the 1980s but might not surprise the audiences today.
The fresh pairing of Sooraj and Athiya doesn’t look too promising. Sooraj Pancholi might charm the audience with his muscular body and a tad bit of acting but Athiya looks inscrutable.
The final action sequence is a bit nonsensical when dying Sooraj suddenly fights back to save Pasha and Radha. Not just the sudden revival but also the dramatic bullet dodging that Sooraj does is unexplainable.
In all, neither will you love this film nor will you hate it but you might walk out confused.
