It's official that Sankranthi will be a four-way contest among Telugu films in 2022. Bangarraju, Super Machi, Rowdy Boys and Hero are likely to be the major festive releases in Telugu cinema for the coming weekend. Excepting Hero (slated for a release on January 15), the other three films are expected to release the same day i.e. January 14. Hero, directed by Sriram Adittya and produced by Padmavathi Galla under Amara Raja Media and Entertainment, marks the debut of veteran star Krishna's grandson, Ashok Galla, who pairs up alongside Nidhhi Agerwal.

RRR director SS Rajamouli had launched the film's theatrical trailer today. "Here’s #HeroTrailer… My best wishes to the entire team of #HERO and especially to @AshokGalla_ on his debut..:) #HEROFromJAN15th," he tweeted, while sharing the trailer link. The trailer revolves around a youngster, who wants to make it big in films and is dissuaded by one and all around him. There's romance in the air, when he falls in love with a medico and a series of clashes ensue, with the former even turning a Joker and a cowboy in different scenes.

There are ample number of action sequences and a truckload of comic gags with Vennela Kishore and Sathya coming your way as well. Ashok Galla, Nidhhi make for a good on-screen pair and the film appears to have been mounted on a grand scale. The presence of veterans like Naresh, Jagapathi Babu ensure familiarity. On the whole, Hero looks like a safe, typical launchpad for Ashok Galla, designed to showcase his exploits as an action hero, who has his way with the moves and can pull of a wide range of histrionics. 

On the technical front, Sameer Reddy and Richard Prasad have cranked the camera for Hero, with Ghibran impressing again with his foot-tapping numbers and a captivating background score. Sriram Adittya has also written the story and the screenplay for the same, while Kalyan Shankar and AR Tagore are the dialogue writers. Hero is edited by Prawin Pudi and also has A Ramanjaneyulu handing duties as an art director. Akshay Tyagi and Rajesh have worked as the costume designers.
