A Nice Film!
16 February 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

David Dhawan's 1997 Box-Office Hit 'Hero No. 1' is A Nice Film, that can be viewed with your entire family. Good Writing, Neat Direction & Superb Performances make 'Hero No. 1' worth a watch.

'Hero No. 1' Synopsis: Two young Indians, Meena and Rajesh, meet in Europe and fall in love with each other, promising to get married when they return back to India. When they return home, Rajesh tells his dad about Meena, and they go to meet Meena's dad. During this meeting, both fathers get into an argument, and refuse to permit the young couple to get married.

'Hero No. 1' entertains from start to end. Sure, there are some minuses, but they aren't too many to be honest. The film is humorous, progressive & light-hearted. The songs are correctly placed & are very melodious. Rumi Jaffrey's Screenplay is entertaining. David Dhawan's Direction is Neat. Cinematography & Editing, are passable.

Performance-Wise: Govinda is absolutely lovable. The Versatile Actor continues his magic! Karisma Kapoor is her usual self, while Kader Khan & Paresh Rawal are terrific. Rakesh Bedi is excellent. Satish Shah, Anil Dhawan & Tiku Talsania are decent. Himani Shivpuri is good. Others lend support.

On the whole, 'Hero No. 1' is an entertaining, light-hearted film.
