  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
Until sometime back, the masala film space was dominated by Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Govinda. Subsequently, Shah Rukh Khan stepped in. Just when you thought that the young brigade would look the other way,

  •  Times of India -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-7
Main Tera Hero (MTH) is a glittering vehicle for star son Varun Dhawan to drive, which he does with practiced panache. However, even more than Junior, MTH has his dad David Dhawan stamped all over it. Hence, eternally smiling Seenu (Varun) is unfazed by failure or goons.

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
It is with much trepidation that one approaches Bollywood comic romps these days. They tend to hinge more on heavy-handed buffoonery than on genuine hilarity.Main Tera Hero has both strains of comedy, the crass and the truly funny, but in the end it is the latter that dominates.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Layabout Seenu (Varun Dhawan) reaches Bengaluru with the single aim of earning a college degree. Instead, he starts chasing the pretty Sunaina (Ileana D’ Cruz), who is being menaced by a tall, burly policeman (Arunoday Singh). A rival for Seenu’s affections pops up,

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanwar Rating-6
What is a David Dhawan film always about? This one is no different unabashed masala entertainer. Mindless but mazedaar. Of course this one is designed for his son Varun (Seenu) who falls in love with Sunaina (Illena). However a cop Angad (Arunoday) is obsessed with her

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
David Dhawan and Govinda teamed up in the ’90s to give us a unique 'leave your brains at home' genre of films. Movies with their slapstick, unabashedly-playing-to-the-gallery kind of humour which entertained nevertheless, thanks to the silliness of it all and yes, due to Govinda’s genius comic timing.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-6
It is unabashedly a paper thin plotline but David Dhawan’s enthusiasm makes it a winning story. Luckily the bountifully talented Milap Zaveri hasn’t dissipated his energy and words too much in slapping on our faces vulgar jokes ala Grand Masti style.
  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-7
The hero in the film was first spotted in a mobile ad promoting a tensions free, EMI free handset. He is the hero of this film. His father, David Dhawan, is the comedy king from the 90s.Main Tera Hero is a complete entertainment film. The film has action, comedy, drama, romance,

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Kusumita Das Rating-6
David Dhawan is back and Varun Dhawan has arrived. Main Tera Hero marks the birth of this new age Govinda. Dance moves, check; histrionics, check; ear-to-ear grin, check; comic timing, double check. Add to this six-pack abs and a boyish charm, and he’s truly tera hero,

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
He talks to idols of gods and they reply back in tapori lingo. He has been thrown out of 15 schools and makes Dennis the Menace look tame. This trouble-maker is Seenu (Varun Dhawan) whose mother indulgently suggests that the question-paper must be wrong, when her son fails the college exams.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-8
Energetic, magnetic and full-on confidence, Varun's Seenu is a character designed to electrify and entertain. From scene one to end, Varun is in his elements drawing the laughs with deadpan confidence. Giving him company is a decent story-line which jogs along willingly without jumping

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
David Dhawan's comedies, the best of them, have been cheerfully low-IQ enterprises, constructed around predictable plot lines involving lookalike protagonists, mistaken identities, cheating husbands, and triangular love stories. When Dhawan was at the top of his game,
  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-4
I like to tell people that I was a fan of David Dhawan movies long before it was cool to be a fan of David Dhawan movies. I truly enjoyed the inspired lunacy, the nonsensical narrative, the determinedly cheesy sensibility and of course Govinda, who was a riot of colors and expressions.

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-6
The end-credits of Main Tera Hero features outtakes from the shoot. On a split-screen, you see director David Dhawan perform a scene on one side, the other showing son and actor Varun Dhawan aping him remarkably well. In the movie, that moment – a scene where Varun’s character Sreenath

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-6
This is a film where the film's lead actor Seenu (Varun Dhawan) declares, "Main dikhta hoon sweet swami type ka, lekin main hoon haraami type ka." At another point his father discloses, "Pachchees saal pehle na iPod tha na ipills aur sinu paida ho gaya." Guessing from these dialogues you should

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-3
Most of India’s leading stars have physical tricks they exploit, to entertain and create a trademark. Amitabh Bachchan had his signature dance step and akimbo stance; Rajini Sir the sunglasses thing; Govinda had unparalleled dance and comic moves; Shakrukh has the I-love-you hand span;

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-7
On being flunked by his professor in college, Sreenath Prasad aka Seenu (Varun Dhawan), the highly notorious boy of the entire Ooty decides to take matters to hand and moves to Bangalore to pursue further schooling. On the first day of college itself Seenu falls for Sunaina (Illeana D'cruz)

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-4
One of Bollywood's most entertaining actors, Govinda who has given the maximum hits with David Dhawan in the nineties is not active since almost a decade.  We do see him on and off on screen, the last memorable film being Partner with Salman Khan in 2007.

  •  Book My Show -Teena Elizabeth Rating-6
Main dikhta hu cute, innocent, swami type ka, but hu bade haraami type ka", says Shreenath Prasad aka Seenu. Main Tera Hero is about this cute, innocent looking kid who is indeed a haraami at core. A sweet and simple story. Seenu (Varun Dhawan), the notorious kid living in Ooty decides to

  •  Zee News -Aparna Mudi Rating-5
Through the 90s David Dhawan was the ruling king of comedy. With Govinda as his favourite lead hero, and Salman Khan as a close second, Dhawan gave hit after hit even with movies that sometimes made no sense at all. Be it `Hero No 1`, `Biwi No. 1`, `Judwaa` or even the more recent

  •  Bollywood Life -Prateek Sur Rating-8
David Dhawan is blessed to have a son like Varun Dhawan! Varun not just brings out his own best but also seems to have brought back the same old energy in papa Dhawan. Main Tera Hero is a typical David Dhawan style movie, which is light-hearted, formulaic, masaledaar but full on energy!

  •  Business of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-4
Varun, all too aware of the camera and of presenting himself as a HERO, hardly ever blends into the scene. From his impressively immaculate hairdos to the backpack he never takes off, from the way he singlehandedly bashes up goons and woos the popular girl on campus,

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-6
David Dhawan’s comedies usually boast of a multi-star cast but for ‘Main TeraHero’, Varun Dhawan provides the perfect blend of Salman-tricks and Govinda-esque school of humour. He has an inherent stupid look on his face and it seems to go so well with his character,

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-7
Following the rules of what a David Dhawan masala entertainer ordered remember 'Aankein' 'Hero No.1', 'Coolie No.1', 'Judwa', 'Raja Babu' 'Sajan Chale Sasural' and all, 'Main Tera Hero' (MTH) captures the soul of the entertainment hungry Bollywood with a hit written all over it face.

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-4
Varun Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero comes with a strong message for the society. It’s time we stop watching boisterous, mindless & slapstick cinema, or the filmmakers will start making films which will be difficult to bear for even 15 minutes.Even if you dare to apply your 1% brain while watching
