Verdict: Shahid Kapoor acts well in a film that couldn't decide if it's a comedy or drama. The high points are the filmy references but Phata Poster Nikhla Hero is is brought down due to its over-the-top treatment. Strictly a ...more

Phata Poster Nikhla Hero Review - Phataa poster- niklaa sort of funny movieSep 20, 2013News So the poster phaatoed and out came a sort of funny movie. I only wish it were funnier.. it could have done much better for itself given that it has Shahid in fine form and a bunch of very good actors like Saurabh Shukla, Darshan Jariwala and Sanjay Mishra hitting the right funny notes.   So, the movie is about Vishwas who wants to be a film start but his mother wants him to be a cop. So he pretends to be one (a la Munnabhai) and gets into all sorts of trouble. Then he does things to get out of all the trouble and the movie goes on its merry way to a happy ending.   Like I said, Shahid is in fine form. He looks cute, dances awesomely and has a good sense of comic timing. Not as good as Salman of course, who in a 2 minute scene makes you laugh without doing anything much but then that is Sallu. Shahid seems a bit over excited, as if he is trying too hard, but is overall very easy on the eye and carries off the funny scenes well. Padmini Kolhapure would give the yersteryear ‘maas’ like Sulochana a total run for their money with her mother act. Ilieana is all eyes. She is so thin that they stare out of her face. She doesn’t have much to do and she does it reasonably well. The rest of the cast is what make the funny parts really funny. The friends, the cops, the gangsters- the whole lot pitch in admirably.   Should you see it? Well you could. The movie see-saws a lot between being funny and suddenly taking the story seriously and that’s a bit of a bore. But there are quite a few really funny sequences and the overall story is quite good for time pass watching.  And yes, you can take the kids.
