Director Diphan and Prithviraj combined together to give a successful film,Puthiya Mugam in 2009. While Puthiya Mugam was found to be a bit extravagant on the action front ( more on the lines of a masala Tamil/Telugu film ) what cannot be dismissed are the wonderful songs composed by Deepak Dev which are popular even now. Now nearly 3 years later Diphan and Prithviraj return again with Hero. From the looks of it this probably falls in the same genre as Puthiya Mugam and here Prithiviraj plays a stuntman named Tarzan Antony.
The film is now also being looked forward to as the female lead is played by Yami Gautam, the flavour of the season after getting noticed for her remarkable screen presence in Vicky Donor. The film also co-stars Tamil actor Srikanth, Bala, Anoop Menon, Thalaivasal Vijay etc. Hero has music by Gopi Sundar and Bharani K.Dharan is the DOP. Written by Vinod Guruvayur, Hero is produced by Seven Arts International. Due for release on 25th May, here’s a look at the trailer which is a bit disappointing as it hardly conveys much.
