Storyline

After the passing away of his son and Caucasian daughter-in-law, London-based widower Purshotam Agarwal brings up his granddaughter, Namrata, on his own. When she matures, he pressurizes her to get married to Tikamgarh-based Ranveer's son. She travels to India, and much to his chagrin refuses to get married to the boy of his choice, and instead brings back a wealthy male named Romi, who she claims is her fiancé. Little does Purshotam know that Romi is not who he claims to be, and that Namrata has no intention of marrying him either. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a very good movie
29 December 2006 | by asaf_hussain123See all my reviews

Hero Hindustani is a brilliant movie..Aziz Sejawal, the director of this film has done a very good job..there is almost everything entertaining in this film: comedy, action, romance, drama, etc..

Arshad Warsi does a good job in the film..while kader khan and shakti kapoor are hilarious..Paresh Rawal does a good job as the father..

Its about Arshad Warsi who is a cool guy and wants to make his brother a doctor. Arshad Warsi himself wanted to be a doctor, but his parents passed away and all responsibilities got on his shoulders. When his brother got a medal, he was very happy. but then he was tolled that he will have to pay some huge fees and he said Main hoon na, i will arrange all that money.

His friend Topi (kader khan) wants to go to London to meet Santa singh. once he sees a lady and asks her are you going to London. she says yes. kader khan asks her take me to London. i am dying to go to London. i will work in your house. i am a good worker. the lady says go away. then kader khan sees cad bury (shakti kapoor) and thinks to himself that he will take me to London. they drive him to a stay house where they stay for 1 day where they find out that cad bury (shakti kapoor) is a servant. Then kader khan gets angry and both romi (arshad warsi) and topi (kader khan) slap cad bury (shakti kapoor) on the head. Then kader khan decides to ask miss London (namrate shirodkar) that find a handsome guy and take him to London. She replies 'will romi agree to go to London. kader khan gets annoyed of this, and tells romi about this situation.

All 4 go to London, and when they get to the airport kader khan says i will ask Santa singh to make this airport on my name 'topi headmaster airport'. they go their own ways.

the story goes on and on till that kick boxing scene comes which is extremely cool.
