Well, well. David Dhawan made HERO NO.1(1997) with Govinda. Now he has launched his son Varun (a walking-talking Govinda) in MTH. The movie is a remake of KANDIREEGA (Telugu, 2011), that was earlier remade into PAGLU 2 (Bengali, 2012).
David-Vashu-Govinda have been ably substituted by David-Ekta-Varun. Alia Bhatt was brilliant in Highway. Siddharth Malhotra did a good job in Hassee Toh Phassee. So can Varun be far behind? With MTH, he takes over from Govinda. And what a zany comedy it turns out to be. Don't look for the story. But don't leave ur brains behind at home
too. Here, u go with the flow. And this flow leaves u asking for more even after the movie ends.
David hasn't lost his midas touch. And Varun shows that he is an able Govinda-successor. Right from songs to mindless scenarios to everything -he handles it all effortlessly. It is a hand-in-glove movie. Everything fits. Everyone here is made for each other. Varun graduates from a student to a star and passes out with top scores. This election month too won't dent the craze and collection for this movie. God and people r with it
Well, the story is unrealistic. But then it is so much fun. Varun in a dream-worthy college scenario, falls for Ileana De'Cruz. And a kabab-mein-haddi cop Arunoday Singh is hell bent on marrying her. A don's daughter Nargis Fakhri takes a shine to Varun. There is marry-go-round in this love-quadrangle. And the wheel of fun spins on and on. Who gets who? That is the question the movie answers finally. BTW, Anupam Kher's voice echoes as he was born in Manali(a hill station). So if you have been hearing about problems, this movie works for you big time.
Anupam Kher-Saurabh Shukla-Rajpal Yadav take over from where Kader Khan-Shakti Kapoor left in David Dhawan films. Karisma Kapoor-Tabu may well be proud of Ileana-Nargis. The girls are a delight in their own right. And the songs are actually chalta purza but go with the spirit of the movie. Taste a song - Besharmi ki Height; Galat Baat Hai; Shanivaar Raati or Palat.
This is hallmark David Dhawan movie. And Varun leaves his own stamp on it. Now I strongly feel, only he could do this role. The role was written for him or he made the character come alive - welcome Govinda No 2. Welcome aboard Varun. What a hearty laugh and laughter I had. The audience is in for good times. MTH will match the might of T20 cricket and come out WINNERS. The movie is doubtlessly a definite HIT.(Touch wood).
Main Tera Hero. Father David Dhawan casts his son Varun Dhawan as a typical Bollywood hero in his typical romantic cum slap stick comedy. The end result is average because although Varun tries hard to replicate the Govinda (David Dhawan's favourite in old times) effect but because the story seems just a forced attempt to keep Varun in spotlight. Varun's charm works using his naughty face and well shaped body. Heroines are there to just smile on the smartness of our hero. Both Ileana and Nargis fall short of putting any sincere effort in their comic timings. However surprisingly Arunoday Singh does well in comic scenes while essaying the role of the typical manly villain who wants the heroine at any cost. Side characters played by likes of Anupam Kher and Saurabh Shukla are descent. I am going with not bad 6 out of 10 for Main Tera Hero. Watch it on a lazy day when you don't want your mind to do any work.
"Mein tera hero" is really a poor, boring, odd making.
