Storyline

Popular Indian leading man Amitabh Bachchan stars in HERA PHERI, a campy Bollywood musical melodrama about faded friendships and family secrets. Best friends Vijay (Bachchan) and Ajay (Vinod Khanna) sever their relationship when Vijay discovers that his father's murderer may be Ajay's own long-lost father, setting into motion a bloody saga of familial revenge that involves a maniacally insane mother, a bra-strap-obsessed serial rapist, and a motley assortment of badly disguised villains.

Good Watch
19 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a movie to watch Amitabh doing great comedy at the time of the angry young man image. This is not a movie to watch for the sake of the plot as it isn't that great. But the comedy of the movie, as the name implies, is simply fantastic.

We all know that Amitabh's acting is just amazing and this is yet another movie to show it. He has done a spectacular job at the comedic scenes and still doesn't let you down when its time to get serious. Alongside, Vinod Khanna does well too. He is a capable actor that shows in each of his movies. The best part of the movie though is Asrani. He isn't in the movie for much, but his part will definitely entertain.
