Aa-Gaya-HeroHe’s an actor who has given an entire generation a reason to enjoy cinema. And when the comedy king returns to the silver screen after many years, expectations are naturally sky high. However, the failure of Aa Gaya Hero has nothing to do with the comedy king, Govinda. The film definitely has Govinda’s stamp all over it but is the audience keen on watching outdated gags with no technical finesse? Can the ‘90s’ formula of success still garner interest from the audience?

The film starts with a bomb blast, resulting in ACP Ravindra Verma (Govinda) planning a unique strategy to catch the bad guys. Ravindra titles his master plan ‘Abhinay Chakra’, and how he succeeds takes the story forward.

The film is pitiable and there are too many cinematic liberties in the script to be ignored. There are moments in the film that are either unnecessary or fail to evoke any emotion. In terms of keeping you hooked, the film is patchy and inconsistent. In fact, the second half is boring after a certain point. As a writer, Govinda fails to construct an engaging screenplay. Clearly, he did not take into account the kind of content the audience engages with today.

In addition to its fundamental flaws, numerous forced gags and songs in the film are irksome. There are just too many scenes and characters in the film that are not justified. The logistics and facts shown in the film are questionable. The screenplay lacks confidence and the execution fails to make an impression. The entire film has a fakeness, which is off-putting.

Debutant director Dipankar Senapati fails to weave together an impressive film. Cinematography is decent. The visual effects are outdated. Music is unbearable. Costumes are apt. Editing could have been better.

Performance-wise, Govinda is good in his role but is let down by a horrendous script. Ashutosh Rana is okay. Murali Sharma is very good. Makarand Deshpande is irksome. Chandrachur Singh justifies his part. Harish is notable. Richa Sharma doesn’t add much. The rest of the cast supports well.

 

Verdict: Dud.
