National Award Winning Director Madhur Bhandarkar is always famous for his realistic women-centric films. Be it Chandni Bar, Page 3, Fashion or his Award Winning Traffic Signal his films were always hard hitting and welcomed by both critics as well as audience. His new film Heroine is releasing tomorrow all over India. Heroine is in news from the the day its casts were announced. Bhandarkar approached Kareena to do the main lead role. But she refused to do sighting the role has many intimate scenes. Later the role was offered to Aishwarya Rai and she accepted it. But after few days of production began, Aishwarya left the film due to her pregnancy and it created a lot of controversy between Bhandarkar and Bachchan Family. Finally Bhandarkar re-approached Kareena Kapoor and convinced her to do the film. Also Heroine releasing on Kareena’s Birthday (September 21st)
Heroine is the story of Mahi Arora played by Kareena Kapoor, and her controversial relationships with Superstar Aryan Khanna played Arjun Rampal and Cricketer Angad Paul played by Randeep Hooda. Her main aim was to become the No.1 actress of her times. Will she succeeds in that? Was her True Love
ever going to be successful? Was Mahi going to lose everything she cared for OR was there any way of saving herself to emerge as her dream of a true Heroine?
First Lets go straight to the Positives of The Film
There were rumours that Heroine’s story is a mix of Fashion, Page 3 & Dirty Picture. Well the truth is that Heroine has no resemblance with DirtyPicture or Fashion or Page3! Heroine is 100% ORGINAL! The story written by the Bhandarkar himself and the screenplay by Anuraadha Tewari and Manoj Tyagi (both worked with Bhandarkar’s earlier films) are brilliant. A big applause should go to Bhandarkar for showcasing the real truth and the dirty politics happening in Bollywood through Heroine. Bhandarkar has never shamed from telling the dirty truth happening in film industry through his movies and Heroine is no exception.One of his finest works. Cinematographyby Mahesh Limayeis good. Music by Salim-Sulaiman is excellent with the chartbuster ‘Halkat Jawani’.
Kareena Kapoor is ROCKED as Mahi Kapoor. No two opinions on that. Reserve all Filmfare, Zee Cine, Stardust, IIFA Awards for 'Mahi Arora! Be it for her innocent or jealous character, her strong emotions or dare to bare act, or for using shockingly foul languages, above all for her excellent brave acting & Yes Kareena’s acting is an EPIC !!! While watching the film I tweeted ‘Last week it was chote bhai Ranbir's #Barfi , This week it's badi deedi #Kareena's #Heroine. Those who loved Kareena for her JabWeMet’s Geet are going to adore Mahi Arora of Heroine! Also she looks million bucks hot in both Title song & Halkat Jawani.
Arjun Rampal is good, though there is not much scope for him to show his versatility. Randeep Hooda is superb in a short but significant role. Talented actress Divya Dutta is excellent as always. Ditto are Ranvir Shorey and Shahana Goswami. Sanjay Suri & Mugdha Godse are effective in their limited roles. Remaining supporting cast is good.
But on the negative side, The film loses its pace in the second half. The song picturised on Randeep-Kareena was not needed. Few scenes/foul languages should have avoided. Compared to first half, second drags a bit and more towards the climax. Climax is too ordinary. But these negatives won’t harm Heroine if you look at the overall execution and Kareena’s power packed performance.
Overall, Heroine is another brave film coming fro-m Madhur Bhandarkar. Don’t get surprised if Heroine opens to a bumber response at the box office. A 8-9crore is on the cards on the opening day with a weekend around 32 crores. I’m sure that Heroine will be loved for its realistic story and will bag many awards this year. A sure shot super hit !!! 


Rating – 3.5/5 

P.S - Aishwarya Rai’s MISS is Kareena Kapoor’s EPIC
