The Vigil Idiot: Heroine
I saw Heroine twice over the weekend—once because I had to, and once because of company I just couldn’t say no to. Although, that isn’t really an accurate statement when I think about it. Because, being a Madhur Bhandarkar production, this is actually a film that I’ve seen like 17 times before. He just called it Fashion. Or Page 3. Or Corporate. And when you have nothing new to say, even a cast that includes Kareena Kapoor (playing heroine Mahi Arora), Arjun Rampal (playing actor Aryan Khanna), Randeep Hooda (playing cricketer Angad Paul) and Divya Dutta (PR agent Pallavi), can do little to redeem it. On second thought, it would be pretty hard for that cast to redeem anything, really.
