Superstar Krishna's grandson Ashok Galla is marking his debut with the upcoming Telugu film Hero. Sriram Adittya T is the film's director. The film's review is here. Check it out.
Arjun (Ashok Galla) is a struggling actor who is waiting for his chance to prove his mettle. He falls for Subbu (Niddhi Agerwal). One fine day, Arjun receives a Gun via courier and he is asked to kill Subbu's father. Arjun is shocked and tries to find out from where he got the gun. Who sent the gun to Arjun? Did he kill Subbu's father? What happens in the end? Forms the film's story.
Looks-wise, Ashok is not a great charming person but he has got talent. Ashok has played the role very well and gave some decent entertainment to the audience. In the first film itself, he attempted to woo the audience with comedy and it has worked out well. Nidhhi Agerwal is good in her role. Her looks are a major attraction to the film. Vennela Kishore and Satya serve as comedians and evoke good laughs. Jagapathi Babu's role is decent and the actor too played his part as per his character limitations. The rest of the cast is okay.
The visuals are the film's strength. The film looks lavishly made because of the talented technicians coming on board. Ghibran's music is top-notch. The songs are impressive and the background score also elevated the mood and emotion of the film. The dialogues are written nicely as they evoked fun. The editing is good. The production design is excellent. The production values are grand. Technically, the film is strong and the entire team gave their best.
Hero is one of the films that is considered a safe bet for a debut hero. Unlike others who pick a love story or an action drama, the makers of Hero picked up a subject that is weaved around comic and thrilling elements. The director has picked up his favorite genre where his strength actually lied. Hero has a subject that is at times silly. But, the way the makers made it and executed it impressed all of us. Hero is funny and thrilling at the same time and it makes it a passable watch. There is nothing great to boast about the film but if you are ready to forgive some shortcomings to watch a decently made comedy-thriller, Hero is your film.
Drags in the second half
Final Verdict: HERO is a time-pass comedy flick with some thrills!
