STORY: Supercop Ravindra (Govinda) is called in to tackle the law and order situation in a city after a villain unleashes his wrath. But to put an end to crime, the cop has to bring out the actor within.
REVIEW: How do you get over Govinda’s image from the 90’s films? Simple- you don’t! His brand of comedy seems a tad outdated, which explains why it must have been difficult for the super entertainer to make a dashing comeback. Aa Gaya Hero is a testament to why his films may not have worked of late.
With an inexistent story, all the film does is glorify Govinda. The actor tries hard to bring in his trademark swag as he plays the James Bond-like cop. He is fearless and has a way of convincing everyone. As a supercop, he introduces something called an ‘Abhinay Chakra’ to the Home Minister. The whole idea is to act out a planned operation in order to catch a supervillain, whose only identity is a maniacal laugh.
As is expected from a Govinda movie, there are song and dance sequences, over-the-top dialogues and the likes. But in Aa Gaya Hero, he tries to eclipse all the mindless comedies of the 90’s while doing a supposedly serious role, dressed in track suits and tuxedos.
There are actors like Ashutosh Rana, Milind Shinde, Makarand Deshpande and Murli Sharma who are completely wasted. The film is full of inconsequential comedy that goes on for two hours and if you survive by the end of it, a ‘Finisher’ trophy is the least the makers can give you.
Not to forget, our Bond-esque Chi Chi woos multiple arm-candies and breaks into a dance every five minutes throughout the movie. Unfortunately, besides the actor’s trademark dance moves, there is nothing worth watching here. The ‘hero’ might just need to make another comeback soon and hopefully a more ‘relevant’ one this time.
