Film Review - Heartless

Heart to Pagal Hain

Film: Heartless
Cast: Adhyayan Suman, Ariana Ayam
Directed by: Shekhar Suman
Duration: 2 hrs 5 mins
Rating: * 1 / 2

As a host/comedian, Shekhar Suman has well and truly entertained us over the years but he has virtually wiped off all his good credentials after this brainless film called Heartless which is a rip off of the 2005 Hollywood film Awake. This one is more than likely to put you to sleep. 

A tribulation lasting over two hours, it defies all logic and common sense. Adhyayan Suman plays Aditya the son of a rich lady industrialist (Deepti Naval), among other things, he also has a heart problem. During a trip to the Gulf, he falls in love with the hotel employee (Ariana Ayam) and after the mandatory song and dance they fall in love but since he has a heart problem (the biological one) they break off. Once he comes to India he has a change of heart (metaphorically this time) and decides to go for a heart transplant so that he can win his lady love back.

The doctor (Shekhar Suman) happens to be his good friend and during the operation he experiences anesthesia awareness where the patient can hear everything that is happening around him. Suffice to say that he learns about one of the most preposterous plot of the 21st century which is the ‘twist’ in the film. 

There is precious little going in favor of the film, the story doesn’t have any conviction and barring a few minutes of the operation theatre episode, the absurdity of the rest is beyond measure.
