Heroine is Just Part of Madhur’s Professional Series

Madhur Bhandarkar is a Professional Director leaving no profession unturned for his movies.I think he is picking up one on one professions to uncover the politics and games people play in the arena. So the next pick up should be medicine and engineering as his series is incomplete without them.

As All his movies heroine too has

  • As the movie unfolds you keep finding similis to the real world gossips heard with real world Check 
  • characters in a mix and match fashion Check
  • Wronged lead protagonist. Check
  • Cheating lover. Check
  • Clinical depression & smashy eyes with black mascara falling  Check
  • Manipulative friends. Check
  • Homosexuality. Check
  • Smoking ,drinking and drugs Jail Check
  • Rising and then eventually falling and slowly fading in career. Check

I think that has been Madur’s personal style for long and almost every movie Corporate  , Page 3, Fashion and Now Heroine

 2-3 places movie is abruptly edited, I mean you miss continuity there in the movie.

Script & Story:

Yes this movie has story though kind of predictable but still when it came for me to narrate it I realized that It took 15-20 minutes to summaries it. Yes it had a story most of it was combination of Fashion and Dirty picture.

And on literally front I can compare it with paulo coelho’s Winner stand alone.

It’s great that Heroine picks not a typical top star as his lead character, nor is she a struggling actress who’s rise we see from the very beginning. Her journey is told to us from somewhere in the middle. At a point in which she’s most distraught and finds her way to a police station for a reason that is not told to us immediately and when you do find out, you can’t believe the pettiness of the issue. I doubt the character or the writer/director knew why she was there.:P


As the bi-polar, erratic, insecure and vulnerable fading star, Kareena gives a superb performance. She looks beautiful, glamorous and makes Mahi her own. In fact, some of the incidents seem to be lifted straight out of Kareena’s life (yes, there is an MMS scandal as well). So if this movie works all credit goes to Kareena Yes iam saying this for her acting and looks

Helen, playing a yesteryear superstar, gives us the moral of the story: that selling your soul for the glitter of glamour will always, always end badly.

Looks Dresses etc:

Kareena looks sensational, but is also brave enough to risk being ugly on screen, literally and figuratively but then all her dresses and designes seems to be copied/ inspired from Sony Viao add though the product itself is not directly vouched for in the movie

Music :

Very average music overall with only one number like Halkat Jawani

Story leaves you with heavy heart but then as said truth is bitter and you entered into madhur bhandarkar cinema not for a power puff remake of south movie.

So after movie you know why you read what you read in newspapers . You know some times some things are beyond award functions etc etc which you already suspected so no knowledge add on

So I will say you can watch the movie but be sure what you are going to find there .



  1. Interesting review of the movie. Indeed I am a big fan of Madhur’s movie as he leave some message through his movies. So I feel he will never let one down . 🙂

    It seems you are writing a post after a long time 😛
    Keep Blogging 🙂

    1. Well I like the way he brings out the things but makes me feel repetitive Iam actually looking forward for the one if he chooses to make on Medical profession 😛 will be eye opener for many 🙂 Well Ya kind of many half written things are there in que 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting

      1. Well organ transplants , How doctors and in particular hospitals run business why so many tests are recommended, how on OTable discussions conducted how their medical mistakes are wiped off ,How doctors separate and create their own hospital chains well so much is there to tell 😉 In short its spicy topic with loads of masala and public interest some real hungama movie where madhur’s style will do wonders

      2. I don’t understand why people only see bad side of doctors. :-/ Just because of few doctors it doesn’t mean that whole lot of others are also wrong. And if you talk about business then everyone is looking for that. As per me there are lot of more important issues to tell or put on the screen.

      3. Ya i agree to you 100% not all are bad (as not all are bad in fashion /corporate/movie /media world ) but what i said goes mostly with the areas/types Madhur Exposes in public so i felt Dr’s must be the next logical step. Then teachers etc are always there but the Number of scandals are easier for medical sector to find.
        I have very high regards for doctors in person 🙂
        So what are other possible issues according to you ?

  2. I kind of hated the movie now I know why by reading your article .To add on to your article will like to say he uses gays a lot in movie and all the same . All gays are not like that.
