Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Heroine', the same cliched technique?
Right from the day Aishwarya Rai opted out of project 'Heroine', nothing good seems to be coming..

HEROINE WAS famed to be the biggest film of Madhur Bhandarkar’s career but since the start of the project, various allegations and incidents have posed hurdles for the film. Many would say that troubles are actually a good sign as it signals something spectacular is going to take place.

The latest news according to is that the film is actually based on Manisha Koirala and how she threw her career aside for substance abuse and bad relationships. The director has denied the claims but if this is the theme of the film then majority of the audience would be disappointed to see another movie by Bhandarkar where success goes to the head of a famous personality.

Does the audience really want to see another girl playing the part of Priyanka Chopra (Fashion) in almost the same situation? No one is denying the pitfalls of success and that a young girl playing the lead of all the successful films, earning millions eventually losing control of life but aren’t there role models in our own film industry who ruled for decades and yet triumphed the evil of success. Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, and Karishma prove what true heroines are.

It is not correct, however to write off a film before actually watching it. The most important thing apart from writing it off is the fact that tragedy sells. People remember famous celebrities, who were successful and died a tragic death like Parveen Babi; who are famous and could not handle fame like Manisha Koirala and people who faltered and came back into the game like Sanjay Dutt. Apart from that we have seen Bhandarkar’s affiliation with showing the negative side of glamour. Be it in Fashion, Corporate and Page 3 (some of his best known works) but will it work again?


Let’s just hope that Heroine is much more than the predictable and more than Bhandarkar’s tried and tested method.
