Hero Paida nahi hota, banta hai.- Super Cool film!
2 June 2018 | by maulin5See all my reviews

Director Vikramaditya Motwane is back after a well attempted film Trapped which was released last year. The Harshvardhan Kapoor starrer film is under the production house of Phantom. Written and directed by Motwane, this is an action+drama of an Indian Superhero, called Bhavesh Joshi, who fights against wrong.

It is a tale of two friends, who are inspired from a party to getting justice. And ended up making 'Insaaf Duo'. They make videos of people doing wrong things, & then upload them on social media. One of them gets settled with his job. The other one is still doing to save his country and countrymen. One day a case has been come to him about water crisis. How he will solve it, or what this case is bringing to him and his partner, is the story of this film.

Phantom production always brings to us something fresh. This is not a marvel or DC film, where we can see some superhero flying. Here we see a common man fighting for all common men. Water crisis is the biggest crime one can ever do. I mean, here there is no problem of that. But I'm sure this film is surely based on some facts. To understand what this type of crisis is, and how normal people are affected to this, you have to see this film. I am thankful to the makers, for showing this crime on celluloid.

Harshvardhan Kapoor is superb. This film is his true debut film. He is the perfect choice of Sikku in this film. Priyanshu and Ashish give solid support. Shreiyah Sabharwal looks stunning. Nishikant and other badmen deliver good performances.

What I like the most, is background score. Though, there are not any song in the film. Except two in the background. Chavanprash sounds cool to me. Qasam Kha Li is suitable in the flow. But, hat's off for the subtle background score in the entire film. No high, no low, to the mark!

Overall, this film is surely an one time watch. Chase sequences are damn cool. The entire climax portion is superb, too. People, who are watching this film over Veere, are generally boys. They will surely remember Harsh's avtaar for a longer time. 'Hero paida nahi hota, banta hai.' Thumps up for the real life superhero. Go for it.
