Prior to the release of Chashme Baddoor last year, director David Dhawan admitted that he was nervous before the film went on floors as the film was devoid of his three favourite stars – Govinda, Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan. One year later, David Dhawan is back with another comedy, Main Tera Hero, which again doesn’t feature his three favourites (although Salman is present in a small way). And just like Chashme Baddoor, Main Tera Hero is a hilarious ride and proves that David need not always incorporate his favourite actors in the film. His execution and his excellent team of writers are enough to take the film to dizzying heights. And moreover, this time he has Varun Dhawan, who is guaranteed to win every viewer’s heart!
The story of the movie: Shreenath Prasad (Varun Dhawan) aka Seenu lives with his parents in Ooty. He’s terrible in studies and is notorious for his mischievous behavior. After being taunted by his father (Manoj Pahwa), Seenu decides to go to Bangalore for higher studies. In college, he comes across Sunaina (Ileana DCruz) and falls for her. By doing so, he gets into the bad books of Angad Bedi (Arunoday Singh). But Seenu is sharp and successfully thwarts Angad and his attempts to defeat him. However, the real trouble begins when Aisha (Nargis Fakhri) springs from nowhere and falls in love with Seenu. (more…)
