Storyline

After his incredible run of women-centric films from Chandni Bar, Page 3, Satta and Corporate to the blockbuster Fashion, Madhur Bhandarkar now turns his lens inwards and presents his most ambitious work yet - Heroine. The film is based on the life and times of a superstar heroine from the dream factory we call 'Bollywood'. The film is a daring, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind the scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our film stars inhabit. For a country obsessed with films and film stars, Heroine will take audiences on a voyeuristic journey to see what really goes on behind the closed doors of make up rooms and vanity vans. It will give them a chance to go beyond the gorgeous smiles and politically correct quotes, to see what really happens in the lives of India's sweethearts. The bitching and the politics, the secrets and the lies, the incredible highs of fame and the lonely depths of failure. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The poster is also strikingly similar to a Indian novel 'The Lost Flamingoes of Bombay' by Siddharth Dhanvant Shangvi. Moreover, the book's leading character "Zaira" has been portrayed as a reclusive queen of Bollywood, which again matches the theme of Bhandarkar's film where Kareena plays the role of a glamorous Bollywood superstar "Mahi Arora."

Goofs

When Kareena is rehearsing with Arjun for a dance, a clear shot of her back, shows that the outfit is backless. However, when the scene shifts to the makeup van, Kareena is wearing the same outfit but a strap has appeared on her back. See more »

If you want to sleep, sleep at home.. Don't go theater to watch Heroine
22 September 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I watched Heroine in cinema hall today and I was looking into my watch more than looking into the screen because I desperately wanted the movie to come to an end. This is one of the biggest disappointment of the year after such a hype for this movie. There was no story at all and I was confused what was going on in the movie. There was nothing in it and Kareena was crying all from starting to end. Arjun Rampal was not at all matching to kareena and Randeep Hooda was totally wasted in this movie. The director plotted many emotional scenes in the movie which according to him was supposed to make the audience also emotional, but I was more emotional of wasting my money and time for this movie. My rating is 1/10.
