Much-awaited movie ‘Heroes’ will release tomorrow worldwide, but going by the preview shows… the movie can be categorized as a one-time watch.
While contrary to many predictions, ‘Heroes’ is not a patriotic movie… the element of national pride has definitely been used.
The story is of two boys, Sammy (Sohail Khan) and Ali (Vatsal Sheth), who embark on a thousand mile journey to deliver three letters to the families of some deceased soldiers as a part of their film school assignment. While, the job is a simple one… they went on to experience some really life-changing experiences on the course of the journey.
“Besides evoking strong emotions, Heroes also arouses strong patriotic feelings. There’re moments in the film that compel you to salute those who guard our nation, so that we can sleep in peace. At the end, the message it delivers is simple — You don’t have to be a soldier to love your country.”
The movie is divided into three chapters starring Salman Khan, Preity Zinta, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Mithun. While the emotions are very well used in the movie, a lack of comedy is striking.
Talking about the film director Samir Karnik said, “ Heroes is a road trip movie which is a journey of certain characters. It takes them from place to place and formulates the story of the film. There is a hero inside everyone. It is only one moment or experience that makes us realize how we can make a difference or think about our country. Heroes is not a war film. It is not even a patriotic film. It is a fun and entertaining film.”
On the music side, it is more inclined to the Punjabi genre. Sajid Wajid duo have compiled some good beats but it doesn’t go with serious theme of the overall movie. There are overall eleven tracks.
Looking at the first impressions, the box office is responding pretty well to the advance bookings. May be it’s the effect of another movie Roadside Romeo, which is India’s first full-commercial animated movie and not many people are into that stuff… if you ask me.
Anyways, my final verdict will be that you can go check out the movie if you’re getting bored in the house. It’s an average movie with the elements of Border and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum mixed in it.
