Movie Review: Main Tera Hero (2014)

Box Office: Above Avg.

Our Love Story begins with the Mischievous, Clever, Charming, a Daredevil and the HERO (Varun Dhawan) who falls in love with Sunaina (Ileana D’cruz). How can a Hero’s love story be complete without a villain! So walks in Angad (Arunoday Singh) the corrupt cop, who wants to forcibly marry Ileana and to make things more spicy also does Ayesha (Nargis Fakhri) who is madly in love with our Hero.

A massy entertaining romantic drama ensues, which takes Our Hero from the mountainous Ooty, to the fun college campus of Bangalore, and then to a beautiful mansion, in gorgeous Thailand.

Main Tera Hero, directed by David Dhawan, is tone deaf comedy that annoys everyone with a good IQ to the core. Yes, you need to keep you brain at home before watching a comedy, but the nature of the genre should not be a license to show anything in the pretense of a movie.

As a movie, Main Tera Hero doesn’t work at all. It seems like David Dhawan overestimated the brand value of his son-actor Varun Dhawan who is just one film old. The man is pushed to his limits to be the next Ranbir Kapoor in a movie founded on the weak base of a terrible screenplay. It is not that Varun is bad but he doesn’t have such a fan base to support this kind of his tone deaf movies.
