Sixty six years since India became free, but are we still free to love, to choose our own life really? Rising from present India in the conflicting era of shining modernity and deep-rooted archaic traditions, in the era of big city versus small towns, comes a love story sealed with an impossible fate. The story of the bold Bablu and the bratty Dimpy. Will Bablu and Dimpy's love blossom under the terror of a brutal clan and the violent landscape it is set against.
Heropanti is the story of today's youth, and the coming of age of its conflicting protagonists.Wikipedia
Culminating in a Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge-inspired climax, the film's conflict is quickly resolved, but not before someone conveniently rips the shirt off Tiger's back for a glimpse of his rock-hard abs. Subtlety is not this film's strength. Newcomer Kriti Sanon looks lovely and makes an impression despite her harebrained role. We'll just have to see both these kids in better films to give them a fair chance.
Boy looks at girl. Boy falls for girl. Girl's father growls. Boy scowls. Girl howls. And I'm left sobbing into my popcorn.
Heropanti is designed to do exactly one thing - make us like Tiger Shroff and that it does exceedingly well. The film is a showcase for Tiger’s talents - he is an incredible acrobat who does backflips in dance sequences and effortlessly leaps offs walls in action scenes. He is a smooth dancer. I can’t wait to see what he does next. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
Heropanti could be a one-time watch if you find kids who don't really know what they are up to and yet act too smart cute. Yes, Tiger gives you that feeling.
Over all, one might be confused if director Sabbir Khan intended to make a spoof or a film. Go for it, if you are in the mood for cheap thrills.
Heropanti’s sole purpose is to let us know there’s a new actor on the entertainment scene. Nothing about Heropanti is fresh or clever. Saddled with a pedestrian setup, ghastly writing, old-fashioned treatment, tacky styling and uninspiring co-stars, Tiger has little going in his favour. And the way I see it, he could not have asked for a shoddier launch. Yet somehow beneath the pin-up torso, the soulful eyes and an awkward smile -- a genuine, graceful, likeable boy comes through.
Over all, Heropanti is an amusing yet bland modification of the classic Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayengey, featuring some of the most fake Haryanvi accents this North Indian has ever heard.The film could do with more action and less drama. The most masala-less masala movie I've watched in a while.
Heropanti is enjoyable. The climax pumps up the action, featuring shirtless Tiger, crouching Rajjo. The tale has a twist as graceful as Tiger's flips and you do agree when Tiger suggests, 'Mere naal tu whistle baja.'
Sadly the film doesn't do justice to both the newcomers. Nothing unique about the screenplay. Ordinary direction. It's a long time since this kind of lover story has been seen on the screen. Just when you thought that the formula had been forgotten Heropanti tries to revives it. Tiger shows huge potential in action and dance but director fails to exploit it fully. Watch it for the newcomers.
Heropanti makes no fuss about being a bad film. Unapologetical about being a dismal and shabby affair, Heropanti serves only two purposes: Giving Bollywood an heir to Akshay Kumar who kick boxes like a star despite having Kareena Kapoor’s cutesy face and an actress who has a lot of latent potential along with her resplendent looks, waiting to be used in the right project.Lamentably, the film allows no bandwidth to save this Tiger.
The only bright spark comes from Sunil Grover's humorous cameo where he easily steals the show. Heropanti is clearly a film that you should not watch. It is nothing but zeropanti.
Ultimately, Heropanti becomes all about Shroff's athletic ability and has little to do with his acting ones.
HEROPANTI is designed as a launch pad for Tiger Shroff and it gives him ample opportunity to prove his credentials in his debut film. The good news is, he delivers a striking performance. Additionally, what works is the masala quotient -- melodrama, music and action. An entertainer that hits the right notes!
‘Heropanti’ was a tedious watch. For a film that had nothing new to offer, it was much too long for a patient viewing.
As a film, HEROPANTI is a disaster. It looks good and has a good line-up of character actors. But sadly the script flounders from the beginning. If it has any semblance of sanity it is thanks to these support actors that prop the falling plot. The entire clan headed by Prakash Raj, who go bang, bang with the slightest of provocation hold their own, in their own bizarre fashion.
Hero-panti is a full-on paisa vasool Sajid Nadiadwala entertainer. It doesn’t quite measure up to the requirements of the theme of honour killing that it so valiantly puts forward. But as a masala entertainer that has more to say than one would expect from a film of this nature Hero-panti gets its fundas right.
