As I watched Govinda’s latest attempt at being a hero, I regretted the box office failures of two movies – Kill Dil and Happy Ending. If these movies had not flopped, perhaps Govinda would have been confined himself to playing scene-stealing supporting roles, instead of being a lead hero in a movie called Aa Gaya Hero. Directed by Dipankar Senapati, Aa Gaya Hero is a revival of an abandoned Govinda project called Abhinay Chakra. Why they did that, well, that’s a question that only Govinda can answer. Here’s our review of Aa Gaya Hero…
What’s it about
Ravinder (Govinda) is assigned to catch a terrorist who would even give Bond villain Blofeld a complex with a hi-tech hideout in a hill and a laugh so sinisterly bad that there should be a restraining order on it. For some unexplained reason, the mission is called Abhinay Chakra. But our Hero who never sleeps runs after random bad guys, dances with skimpily class girls in too many songs, and keeps on mouthing pre-historic dialogues for absolutely no reason at all. Just like the existence of the movie, that shouldn’t have been in our theatres in 2017.
let’s skip this one…
Aa Gaya Hero is a relic of a forgotten era that even Bhojpuri cinema would disown in this time and space. It’s really strange that Govinda even thought that this movie would give him back his superstardom since Aa Gaya Hero brings him in the same league as Mr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. But at least, we could laugh at MSG movies. The same is not the case with Aa Gaya Hero. Govinda had given us so many entertaining movies in the ’90s like Dulhe Raja, Coolie No 1, Saajan Chale Sasural and others. For this reason, we don’t laugh at him but pity him when he desperately wants to show his fans that he still has the zeal to mouth punchlines, fight with his frame and dance like he used to in the heydeys. Well, no one can question his dancing skills but his attempt at being a masala hero sucks big time. In an era, where even Salman Khan is doing a movie like Tubelight, Aa Gaya Hero is an archaic mess that should never have seen the light of the day. Filled with hammy acting, badly choreographed action and dance sequences and random scenes popping up every now and then, it’s a wonder that distributors even thought of buying this one.There are characters who appear and disappear at will, comic sequences that make Comedy Nights Bachao feel like Saturday Night Live and girls whose dressing sense is as bad as their performances.the movie’s treatment of female characters is a complete sham, especially when we are working hard towards women empowerment.
Every baddie in the movie wants to scream out every line, while the junior artists seem to have been told that acting means trembling your body. The dialogues are total gems like ‘Makkhi ke Pankh nikalne se makkhi pari nahi hoti’ or ‘I am a nature’, I kid you not. The screenplay is so much in ruins that Govinda feels the need to explain every random stuff through a voiceover.Forgotten actors like Chandrachur Singh and Harish are cast for no reason, and I am feeling really bad for talented performers like Ashutosh Rana, Makarand Deshpande, Murli Sharma for agreeing to be a part of this farce and make a mockery out of themselves. And I am pretty sure the names they mentioned under the screenplay, editing and direction credits are as real as the Loch Ness monster.
What to do
Here’s an idea – rent DVDs of Jodi No 1, Partner, Dulhe Raja which had Govinda in top form and ignore this one ever existed. For Aa Gaya Hero is an abhorrence in the name of cinema and a two-hour long insult to the talent of Govinda that he heaped upon himself. Avoid this one at all costs.
