Storyline

Notorious criminal Pasha has been imprisoned by the former Inspector General of Police, Shrikant Mathur. To get out of the situation, he writes to his best man, Jackie. Jackie goes to Shrikant Mathur and warns him. He then kidnaps Shrikant's daughter Radha. Radha is given to understand that Jackie and his gang are policemen who have taken her away to the safety of jungles because their house has been invaded by bandits. They fall in love but she finds out that he is a goon. Nevertheless, she does not leave him but urges him to surrender. He goes and surrenders to the police and is imprisoned for two years. After getting released from prison, Pasha desires revenge against both Shrikanth and Jackie, so he kidnaps Radha, Shrikanth and Damodar. The question remains: What will happen to them? Will Jackie be able to save them from Pasha's clutches? Written by Soumitra

Simple and Sweet
24 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Subhash Ghai's Hero is a perfect example of a simple yet sweet film, something that is difficult to comprehend in this era of artificial films. A typical story of love winning against all the odds, the movie strikes a chord mainly because of good direction and a super musical score -- "Ding Dong" and "Tu mera janoo hai" are just two of the melodious numbers that still remain hummable even after all these years. There's a certain degree of simplicity in this movie that makes watching it a memorable experience. Performance wise it is Sanjeev Kumar -- in an interesting comic role -- and Meenakshi Seshadri -- her innocent face and somewhat gullible, somewhat strong character remains in the mind long after the movies is over -- who deserve all the praise. Jackie Shroff, in the title role is good but watching the movie one cannot help but think that Mr Ghai should have stuck to his first choice for the lead -- Sanjay Dutt. Sanju was the best man for this role and, moreover, after all these years he still is a successful "HERO" unlike Jackie. All in all a simple, sweet musical love story and one of Subhash Ghai's best works.
