: Heer & Hero, the next offering from the director of 'Burrraahh', has something new and unique to offer from what every comedy movie has. The film turns into a road journey in the second half, which is unique and has been attempted for the first time in Punjabi Cinema.
Coming to the story, it’s a regular comic theme but this time, the female character is much more stronger than the usuals. Screenplay is fast and suits the mood of the film.
Overall, story and screenplay by Rajan Agarwal offers an all in one package – comedy, action, romance, drama. Dialogues are by Sagar Sharma, Veer Vashisht & Kumar Ajay. The characters of Arya Babbar and Mukul Dev stands out because of the punch in their dialogues.
Sagar S Sharma as a director achieved heights with 'Burrraahh' and now in 'Heer & Hero' he’s moved to another level. Technically, the film is well shot and he’s given an extraordinary lifeline to this ordinary idea on paper.
Music is by Gurmeet Singh. Tracks like 'Lak Tunoo Tunoo', 'Heer Te Hero' by Lehmber, 'Dil Nal Dil' and 'Ullu Da Patha' add variety to the album.
Coming to the performances, Arya Babbar stole the show. Minissha Lamba and Preet Bhullar make confident debuts in Punjabi cinema. Minissha has proved her acting in Hindi cinema and given such roles again she can perform well.
Speaking of Preet, Punjabi cinema has got a new hero. Gurpreet Ghuggi as always was a treat to watch. His role could have been more in the first half. Mukul Dev, was strong as a character. Each time he made his presence, his character took the film forward. He was been cleverly used. It was great to watch the likes of Manoj Pahwa and Yograj Singh in roles that suit them. Manoj had his share of ‘samosas’ in the film. Goldy Khurana as Ballu Bahadur will get noticed. Hazel sizzled the screen in 'Lak Tunoo Tunoo'.
Overall, Heer & Hero is a comedy film but has something unique and new to offer when it comes to comedies in Punjabi Cinema. The film has strong performances, peppy music and much more. A watchable film this weekend.
