Actor Adhyayan Suman has been trying very hard to achieve success at the box office for a long time. now, his dad Shekhar Suman has come to the rescue by directing Adhyayan’s latest venture which is titled ‘Heartless’. The movie also stars Ariana Ayam, Om Puri and Deepti Naval in other lead roles.
Aditya (Adhyayan Suman) is a business tycoon, who has been brought up by his single rich mother Gayatri (Deepti Naval). He leads a happy life and falls deeply in love with Ria (Ariana Ayam).
When things seem to be going fine, Aditya suddenly gets a massive heart stroke. After a series of tests, the doctors reveal that Aditya has a fatal heart disease and the only option left is a heart transplant surgery. A helpless Aditya gets in touch with his surgeon friend Sameer (Shekhar Suman) and entrusts him with his life.
Will his trust over Sameer prove to be a right step? Will Aditya get a successful heart transplant? For all these questions, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
After seeing the film, one can say that Shekhar Suman has undoubtedly done a lot of research and hardwork for this film. ‘Heartless; is the official remake of the Hollywood film ‘Awake’ and has been adapted quite nicely by Shekhar.
Coming to performances, Adhyayan has done a good job especially in the emotional department while the rest of the cast including Deepti and Om Puri are excellent in their respective roles.
The second half of the film is quite interesting and showcases the real intent of the film and the twist in the tale is the something to watch out for.
The romance between Adyayan and Ariana is confusing and happens over the course of a few romantic songs. Plus, too many songs are wrongly placed in the narrative. Even though Adhyayan has shown off his acting talent in the film, he could have been supported with a better co-star than Araina who lacks the potential to be called an actress.
The first half of the film is routine and emphasizes more on the romance rather than the actual theme of the film.
While the first half doesn’t have anything interesting to offer, the second half of the film contains the real content and keeps the audiences engaged.
Shekhar Suman’s direction is excellent and so is the cinematography. The editing could have been better in the first half. The locations are mind-blowing and so are a few songs while the dialogues are simple and clean.
The medical terminology that has been used is clearly explained and makes it easy for the common audience to understand.
Heartless is a 2014 Bollywood medical thriller film directed by Shekhar Suman. Shekhar Suman also stars in the film along with his son, Adhyayan Suman. The film also features Ariana Ayam, Deepti Naval, Om Puri and Madan Jain amongst others. It released on 7 February 2014, to mixed reviews from critics apparently.

The film is loosely inspired from 2007 Hollywood medical thriller Awake.
