What are the qualities of a real hero?Do you know how to be one? Do you know the secret tips to find a hero? Don’t worry I have news to share.
When we watch Hindi movies the heroes are often flawed. They don’t study (I am obsessed with this one). The foul-mouthed hero, marrying the arrogant princes and teaching her all about real life is a favorite topic. A reverse fairy tale or a modern fairy tale. Whichever way you look at it, as a woman I don’t want heroes like that in my life.
Golden heart like Munnabhai who needs no degree to cure patients or win legal battles gives out mixed messages.
Then there are films like A Wednesday, Raazi, and Chaakde, which made me think about unlikely heroes and what exactly is being a hero all about.
Can heroes have flaws? I think they have. Humans are flawed, so it’s natural that human heroes will be flawed.
Why are Incredibles and the Avengers series so powerful? Why did Avengers Infinity war kill all the heroes? Is it important modern literature and films portray a positive hero or is a negative hero (if there is such a thing ) okay?
Does the hero need big muscles, big heart or a smart head?
