"Hero" is a remake of the movie by the same name, which came in 1983. "Hero" was the first grand success for Jackie Shroff as an actor in Bollywood. Nikhil Advani has directed the current version of "Hero".Nikhil Advani has got two back to back movies which were "Katti Batti" and "Hero" and sadly both of them didn't appear to be quality cinema work. Nikhil Advani has been working in the Industry for a while now. He has also given us some good movies which were on different topics and yet equally entertaining.However with two consistent not so good films his career graph has coming little down. "Hero" is mostly 80's drama which has most the ingredients to satisfy people who never really like much of a quality cinematic experience.
Songs were good like "Main Hu Hero Tera" sung in the various different versions in the movie actually works. But the plot is so weak that you will be bored pretty much all the time.I personally think if a film needs to be remade it has to under through reengineering and modification of the plot which would be suitable for today's scenario.Time changes everything and something which would be entertaining back in 80's will be completely preposterous in the current time.So, A lot of rework has to be done in terms to change from plot, characters, camera work etc. to make it an excellent movie.However, In my opinion most of the remakes were awful and they didn't make much sense in today's world.
"Hero" has nice background music but the film could be a little boring. However the work from the new comer actors i.e. Suraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty is also average for the most part.Overall, "Hero" is not so entertaining film which can be avoided.
