• 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.

    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.

  • 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’ 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.

    In a nut shell, the movie Heropanti is not just an ideal debut for both Tiger and Kriti, while it’s most likely to leave the audience with the question, “What was so heroic in Heropanti?”

  • Heropanti has its drawbacks but manages to hold the audience in the second half. And more importantly, it does spring two talents to look out for. Tiger, with his innocent looks, should work well with the girls while he could be a valid action star. He may not have his father’s voice but he has his style for sure. It would be up to him to make the right moves from here.

    Watch this film if you don’t have anything to do this weekend. We suggest you to save your hard earned money for better films.

  • Not that one was expecting great shakes from a film called Heropanti. But, that the makers, with a 100% fresh starcast don’t even attempt to break any mould is disheartening. In fact, they try to milk the popularity of a 20-year old film. Just sad.

    I understand the need to market this film as an oldschool launch vehicle, but I have a question for the producers: Is ‘Heropanti’ the real phrase that comes to your mind when unsuspecting viewers buy tickets to watch your film?
