Hero Review: A mocktail! | Telugu Cinema

What’s it about?

A wannabe actor, Arjun (Ashok Galla) is on his path to get an opportunity in movies, however nothing works out for him. He’s additionally in love along with his neighbor Subbu (Nidhhi). When he pays cash for a hair oil product on-line, he receives a gun and a contract kill within the courier. It got here to the improper handle, however he realizes that anyone is making an attempt to kill Subbu’s father (Jagapathi Babu).

How will he save his girlfriend’s father? Will he turn into a hero in actual life, not less than, if not in motion pictures?


Director Sriram Adittya follows the model of Hollywood director Man Ritchie’s crime comedies. He has introduced ‘Bhale Manchi Roju’, ‘Samantakamani’, and so forth in the identical trend. ‘Hero’, his newest movie that introduces Mahesh Babu’s nephew Ashok Galla because the lead actor, begins equally.

Starting as a thriller with a slapstick comedy, ‘Hero’ works effectively to the a lot of the first half. A wannabe actor mistakenly getting a contract kill is an thrilling thought. Aditya holds our curiosity with the preliminary twists and turns and comedy parts.

The movie begins with a cowboy dream sequence, hinting that it has a ‘mild’ method in the direction of the story. However the lightness additionally turns right into a foolish after a degree. There’s a large twist within the second half, that derails the movie.

The movie begins as a criminal offense comedy however turns right into a spoof. Many scenes go excessive. The second half drags on.

Coming to performances, Ashok Galla, in his debut position, makes a assured debut. It’s a light-hearted character, and he does it neatly. Nidhhi Agerwal has nothing a lot to do. Vennela Kishore as a mannequin for TV-shopping adverts and Brahmaji as a movie actor present good laughs.

Lavish manufacturing values are a serious power. The producers haven’t left any stone unturned to present a wealthy visible look. The camerawork can also be first-rate. However music has performed to turn into a power. Director exhibits his grip on comedy half.

Backside-line: ‘Hero’ is a secure launch for Ashok Galla, nephew of Mahesh Babu. However the movie is a mocktail of comedy, motion, thriller, and spoof. Gives laughs, but it surely wanted coherence.
