To begin with, Subhash Ghai's Hero was never a great movie. Given the number of years that have passed since its release (more than three decades), and given that tends some stuff tends to get romanticised just because its ancient, the film is now considered a cult classic. Cult enough for a remake to be considered, which is what Nikhil Advani has done. With names like Salman Khan thrown in (as producer), the new, contemporary Hero has had more than its share of publicity. At the end of the day, however, the fact remains that the original was never good enough anyway.
