‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ abounds in clean, inane humour that will have you rolling with laughter. One of the prime reasons why ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ also works is the superlative performance by Shahid Kapoor, who goes all massy with this one. But also, there's nothing in this movie that you haven't watched before. It has a standard theme, several clichés that you may have encountered in earlier films, but what works is the fact that the journey to the destination is full of amusement and entertainment. Although Santoshi has helmed comedies earlier, the humour in ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ is more unabashed, in your face, goofier and physical. The sole similarity between Santoshi's earlier works and this one is that the wit and humour is just hard to disregard. You can't help but break into a smile or guffaw at the most absurd, ludicrous situations, which is what the intent is. The flick belongs to Shahid Kapoor completely! He gets to portray the part of an entertainer, a character which is not everyone's cup of tea, but Shahid makes sure he carries off the part with amazing ease, displaying his funny side in several sequences. On the whole, this movie is an entertainer all the way. Give a chance to this vibrant, kaleidoscopic, light-hearted entertainer!
