By the way tweeple are going gaga over her film, feeling that Kareena did give her best performance of her career (as she promised in various promotional interviews). Karan Johar, who is a close friend and a director tweeted, “Bebo is phenomenal in HEROINE!!! She owns,projects and understands the complexities of the protagonist to perfection!!!” Not only him but various other media channels have given the film 4 out of five stars, which is commendable and is surely going to make Kareena's 32nd birthday special.
What is interesting about the film is that Madhur Bhandarkar has not followed the usual formula of showing the struggles of an actress, then her peak moment in life and her downfall to rise again after all odds. But he has taken a more realistic view of life and has shown as aging actress, who is already at the top of her career and how her life takes a nosedive when she falls in love with a married actor. This point is actually the beginning of Heroine and what happens after that is a tale truly out of the real Bollywood.
Like his previous films, this film also goes deeper than the glamor quotient of this industry and shows how relationships work and friendships happen in Bollywood. Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda are the men in Mahi Arora's (Kareena Kapoor's character in the film) life. Giving some breathtaking performances are Helen, Divya Dutta and Shahana Goswami. Till now it looks that this Heroine and this September 21 is going to be a landmark in the life of real life Heroine Kareena Kapoor.
