A message movie masquerading as a superhero flick

Post intermissionHero as a film is loaded with dialogues and action sequences. The innovativeness that we eagerly anticipated never comes to the forefront. It all happens too easily. A superhero suit is all that is needed to bring down a powerful villain who moves from being ahead of everything to ...(more)

Fairly good vigilante film, middling superhero movie

As in Mugamoodi, you admire the fact the filmmaker has tried to make his superhero as desi as possible, but at the same time feel underwhelmed of this superhero because the things that he does (beating up the bad guys, driving a bike at high speed amidst traffic, giving the money back to the people...(more)

Hero is a watchable Super-Hero drama with some inspiring moments.

Special mention to the director PS Mithran for showing the actual heroes and their inventions as a part of the end credits. Their inventions are extremely significant and will surely inspire you(more)

Sivakarthikeyan's film has interesting premise, but let down by execution

Sivakarthikeyan starrer is a superhero thriller with an emotional core

The film gets quite message-heavy towards the end and Sivakarthikeyan delivers an emotional speech on how parents should stop worrying about grades of their kids and instead focus on their dreams. The intention of the message is laudable but it needed to be told more effectively.(more)

Sivakarthikeyan takes a detour from romantic comedies but film isn't thoroughly convincing

On the whole, Mithran has given a neat commercial entertainer, which also calls for a rethink of our educational policy.(more)

Arun Sundar

Much more than a normal timepass flick. But PS Mithran could have tightened the screenplay and made things more interesting, from start itself. Lacks a bit in emotions but makes it up with packaging and presentation style. PS Mithran also keeps things subtle and relatable to a large extent. Yuvan f... (more)
