Desperate times call for desperate measures so goes the saying and ‘Aa Gaya Hero’, Govinda’s shall-we-call-it-a-comeback film, seems to be some sort of an example of the same. Die-hard Govinda fans will wonder why a talent like him would need to be desperate at all. Such is the world and such is the industry so here comes our hero back, literally and it is not good news.
The film rests on the age old trope of the upright, superman-ish, or rather Singham-ish, Dabanngg police officer not scared of bending the rules to bring the culprits to justice, The one-man army here is also Bond-esque, adept at disguises and a Casanova by nature. He speaks only in bombastic quotes most of the time and makes do with stern looks, punches or bullets at others. On prompt everyone else responds to his quotes with jokes, desperately dumbing themselves down to make our hero and his universe shine. Sad state of affairs, indeed.
However, the film has an interesting premise. Our man is some sort of a genius behroopia whereby he flusters his opponents not only through brawn but also brain. He calls this system of his abhinaya chakra, a web of deceit and illusion meant to trap the wiliest of criminals. But the criminals look more like clowns and Govinda’s ingenious cop is forever-dancing-with-random-girls-cop. Also, one may look for the Govinda dancing (or any other) artistry at one’s own peril.
Women keep flitting in and out of the film, handy tools for objectification, victimising and idolising at the convenience of the script. If at one hand there is a politician’s mother snapping at him for his sexist abuses, right at the next instant we have scantily clad women shot at low angle dancing dirty. The absurdities do not end and almost do not count either.
The man who used to make me smile made me frown this time around.
