I saw ‘Heroine’ twice over the weekend – once because I had to, and once because of company that just wouldn’t let me say no. Although, “twice” doesn’t really cover it now that I think about it. Because, being a Madhur Bhandarkar production, this is actually a film that I’ve seen like 17 times before. He just called it ‘Page 3’. Or Corporate. Or ‘Fashion’. And when you have nothing new to say, even a cast that includes Kareena Kapoor (playing Heroine Mahi Arora), Arjun Rampal (playing actor Aryan Khanna), Randeep Hooda (playing cricketer Angad Paul), and Divya Dutta (PR Agent Pallavi), can do little to redeem it.
Though, to be fair to the cast, it would be pretty hard for anyone to redeem a Bhandarkar movie.
