Surprisingly GOOD!!! Very Funny
11 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Hero Hindustani is a very funny movie. I didn't expect much when i first saw this. The reason for this is the main actor was a new comer Arshad Warsi. The actress was another unknown person Namrata Shirodkar, sister of Shilpa Shirodkar. I was wrong, i loved this movie to bits. It was a non stop comedy movie with romance and a little action. It had a great storyline. The acting was Entertainingly good for a new comer. Arshad has given us good films in the future like Hogi Pyar ki jeet and Munnabhai, this is his Best Solo Work. Namrata is pretty sexy and gives us a good performance. Kader Khan is Simply amazing as the Funny Driver and associate to Arshad. Shakti kapoor is terrific as the butler. Asrani and Paresh Rawail are Superb. The music is good Deewana Deewana being my favourite. This movie is a non stop entertainer. If you haven't seen this movie, give it a go. It is worth the price. I'm sure you will enjoy this, if you are a regular Bollywood viewer.
