After Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) is raised by his Mother (Padmini Kolhapure), who apparently dreams of him becoming a Police Inspector. However, he has different plans in mind. Vishwas wants to become a film star. In Mumbai, after helping out a social-worker, Kajal (Ileana D'Cruz), whilst dressed as an Police Inspector for a photo shoot, she mistakes him as an Inspector, and he eventually plays along. Suddenly her mother arrives in Mumbai. How will Vishwas get rid of his troubles?Written by
Partly funny, somewhat emotional, intermittent witty dialogues, a couple of peppy songs, and sporadically wonderful scenes. Therein lies the inherent problem of "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" - it might entertain you throughout, but it never comes together as a wholly cohesive unit. Though it is better than most other mediocre Bollywood films this year, it never comes close to scaling the heights of Mr. Santoshi's erstwhile laugh riots - "Andaz Apna Apna" and "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani".
Lastly a word must be put in about Shahid Kapoor's, who surely surprises many with his performance. He's in full flow and in complete control of his act, displaying his entire range from comedy, to emotions, to conventional Bollywood hero. After ages, he successfully carries an entire film on his shoulders, albeit with some help from Padmini Kolhapure (great to see her talent on display after so long), Darshan Zariwala, Sanjay Mishra, Saurabh Shukla, and Zakir Hussain. Ileana D'cruz is a total let-down.
