Phata Poster Nikla Hero


‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ is a comedy cum action movie directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi and produced by Ramesh Taurani. The lead casts of the movie are Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz. The movie is released on 20th September.

The story line shows a young and aspiring actor Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) who dreams of becoming an actor. His mother (Padmini Kolhapuri) is an auto rickshaw driver and prays for her son to become a cop. Certain funny incidences take place and people start perceiving him as a real cop. So an aspiring actor becomes a fake cop. The humorous part of the movie begins when Vishwas Rao fights goons but is extra cautious not to let his face get injured as he is an aspiring actor. So the action sequences are quite funny and entertaining.

Kaajal (Ileana D’Cruz) is a social worker whose motto in life is to file complaints against bad people in the police station. Since she stands against politicians and powerful people, policemen want to avoid her. She is so frequent to the police station that policemen call her ‘Complaint Kaajal’. Unknowingly she drags Vishwas in one of her complaints.

Vishwas shares a warm bond with her mother. The bonding between mother-son duo is worth watching. Since police and goons start believing Vishwas Rao to be an inspector, what follows is a series of circuitous instances. Also mother and son get into the crossfire between police and goons.

The music of the movie is given by Pritam. The songs are penned down by Amitabh Bhattacharya and Irshad Kamil. The song ‘Tu Mere Agal Bagal’ is a refreshing number filmed at a construction site in the scorching weather of 45 degress. Yet Shahid pulled it off sportingly. ‘Dhating Naach’ is filmed on Shahid and Nargis Fakhri. The song is filmed on an extravagant set. It delivers the essence. Says Nargis, “I love to dance and when this opportunity came my way, I jumped at it. Also, Shahid is one of the best dancers in the industry, so how could I not do it?”

Shahid is at its acting best. He has proved that he has the guts to tickle the funny bones. It was a new genre for Ileana. But she has also delivered a convincing performance.

Overall, a sweet and humorous movie. It can be a ‘stress buster’ over the weekend.
