You know those movies that seem to have good intentions but fail with an unsatisfactory execution. The movie ‘Heroine’ is a brand new example of such movies.
You must be thinking that I’m talking only about the protagonist. This is where I want to drive home a point. Kareena Kapoor solely carries the burden of this film on her shoulders. Her performance deserves praise and is the movie’s saving grace (Whoa! I did some kind of poetry here!). Arjun Rampal, playing a confused personality, also delivers a good performance.
The director, Madhur Bhandarkar , uses inputs from his own past films rather than inventing a new creative storyline. With all the praise he garnered with those movies , expectations were certainly high from his new and much- hyped venture.
To add to the viewer's misery, Heroine's music tracks don't make you remember them.
Indian film-makers are still obsessed with long drawn movies and Heroine is no exception. Watching this long drawn and boring narrative, I was expecting a decent climax. I was disappointed yet again, with the abrupt and unsatisfactory ending. Heroine is a big opportunity wasted.
For most of the second half of the movie, I was wishing it would end soon. Thank God it did! And I’m back home. Phew!
