Hero is watchable for its important criticism towards the education system in India. It had great potential, but the execution was poor on many levels.
Mostly disappointing was the screenplay. It had a very weird pacing and completely unnecessary elements were weighted too much. The main problems were exposed well, but the movie often lost the focus. Especially towards the end, it felt difficult to take the movie seriously. Background score was sometimes solid, sometimes completely exaggerating.
The cast fit well, especially Arjun. But due to a rather clippy directing of the movie, the character developments were inconsistent. The antagonist had great potential with plausible reasoning, only with little shades of the one-dimensional villains.
Despite those elements were completely exaggerating, the combination of CGI and live special effects was well done.
Overall it's only a disappointment due to the high expectations.
