Heroes – On Star World from Today


Star World is telecasting the hit NBC series – Heroes from today onwards, every wednesday at 9 PM. I first read about this series on Harsh’s Blog sometime ago but never really taken any interest in it back then. Star World started airing its promos since a while back and only then did I attempt to look around at what’s it all about. Bluntly put, Heroes is a comic-book-story-turned-into-a-serial. Much like our very own Captain Vyom or Shaktimaan. Note that there was no actual comic by that name but the story is a fantasy alright! The tagline of heroes reads as Ordinary people discovering extraordinary abilities and that sorta tells it all! Common people who find that they have something of a superpower within and use that to the good of the world (probably). The synopsis reads thus:

As a total eclipse casts its shadow across the globe, a genetics professor (Sendhil Ramamurthy) in India is led by father’s disappearance to uncover a secret theory — there are people with super powers living among us. A young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia) tries to convince his politician brother (Adrian Pasdar) that he can fly. A high school cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere) learns that she is totally indestructible. A Las Vegas stripper (Ali Larter) struggling to make ends meet to support her young son (Noah Gray-Cabey), discovers that her mirror image has a secret. A fugitive from justice (Leonard Roberts) continues to baffle authorities who twice have been unable to contain him. A gifted artist (Santiago Cabrera), whose drug addiction is destroying his life and relationship with his girlfriend (Tawny Cypress), can paint the future. A down-on-his-luck Los Angeles beat cop (Greg Grunberg) can hear people’s thoughts, which puts him on the trail of an elusive serial killer. In Japan, a young man (Masi Oka) develops a way to stop time through sheer will power. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world…

Hmm…though i’d not say it is a must-watch show, the fact that it was the most-watched show in the US on its premiere – in September last year – and its intriguing storyline may get me to watch it initially. I remember I started off watching Desire: Table for Three on Star World quite avidly at first but then it petered out into a Mafia and gangwars kinda thing and I stopped watching it! So I’ll be skeptical about whether Heroes will manage to hold my attention week after week…..
