Good Govinda, watchable first half but runs out of steam later
'Hero No. 1' has a good first half but is let down by a weak second half. There's lots of typical Govinda comedy. Mind you, Govinda films are generally an acquired taste(!) so keep that in mind. Still, the first half is breezy, albeit brainless fun. The script is complete nonsense but Govinda and Karishma have good chemistry and there are some fun songs. The second half tends to drag. It feels lifted straight from another Hindi film 'Bawarchi' and this can lead to viewer annoyance. The supporting cast are decent although they ALL tend to overact. I found this film watchable but average. It's probably best seen at home with a bunch of friends.
