HEROPANTI is a product launch of Tiger Shroff, son of actor Jackie Shroff. Film Heropanti Not only does borrow half its title from Shroff Sr's breakout film, it also has the signature tune from Hero (1983) playing in the background repeatedly. It is a Sabbir Khan's second directorial venture after the infamous Akshay-Kareena starrer Kambakkht Ishq which is film is also produced by Sajid Nadiadwala
Heropanti is a remake of a Telugu film -- which is pretty obvious -- and follows in the footsteps of the original, Parugu. The promos of the film promise to give us an out and out romantic action drama. So, let's find out whether 'Heropanti' will manage to establish Tiger Shroff as a dashing actor just how its namesake 'Hero' did it for his father or might join the long list of all those star kids who were undeserving.
'Heropanti' is a story of Chaudhary (Prakash Raj) and his daughters Renu (Sandeepa Dhar) & Dimpy (Kriti Sanon). Renu elopes with her lover due to which Chaudhary's men get hold of their friends. None of them know the details of their whereabouts, except for Bablu (Tiger Shroff). On the other hand, Bablu falls in love with Dimpy and after which what happens next, is what the entire film is all about.
The basic story line of the film is interesting. The way director penned down the screenplay in the first half is also decent. A few things including the interval block is exciting and builds some curiosity.
I cannot resist but salute Tiger for all the hard work he has put in to get a body, learn action and dance moves like this for his debut. He sure has the ability to do better. Tiger performs some good action and displays good dancing skills, which was clearly visible in the trailers.
The lead actress of the film, Kriti is beautiful as hell. If you are a boy, you won’t be able to take your eyes off her waistline, while if you are girl, you won’t stop envying her every time she steps onscreen. Not just this, Kriti has also done tremendously well in the acting department.
Being his first movie, Tiger seems jittery ins some scenes and needs a lot of work in the dialogue and lip-sync department. If you have seen the trailers and are eagerly waiting for some good action in the film, then let us tell you that the only action you will get to see was already shown in the trailers.
Another bad part about the movie is that there is more chemistry between Tiger and Prakash, than Kriti and Tiger. The romance shown in the movie is tasteless and does not have any substance.
Prakash Raj appears in an emotional role in the film, which I must say is a little hard to digest. Prakash cries more than the lead actress of the film.
The worst part about the movie is that its too slow paced without any good screenplay to offer. The story is bland and so are some of the characters.
Director Sabir Khan's last released film 'Kambakkht Ishq' was a terrible film and in comparison to it, 'Heropanti' is a much better film with fantastic music. He is good in the first half, but he could have seriously worked on the characterization and screenplay a bit more. It is extremely difficult to suffer the torture that the second half’s screenplay has to offer.
There is no drama in the movie and it seems like a one line story has been extended into a two and a half hours film. The best part about the film is its music, but the problem here again is the placement of songs. Apart from Tabah, none of the songs fit well in the screenplay.
The climax of the film is ambiguous and a bit confusing, and we think that the director too was bored by the end that he choose to insert a tweaked version of DDLJ climax. Cinematography is good, but the editing is not at all sharp in the second half.
