A beautiful concept
Tiger Shroff's same expression throughout
The Story: Kriti Sanon aka Dimpy belongs from a Family who live in 'The land of Jats', where no girl can take charge of her life & fall in love. Tiger Shroff aka Bablu is a college friend of a guy named Rajesh, who elopes with Dimpy's sister on the day of her marriage. Dimpy's Father played by Prakash Raj takes out an Army to hunt his daughter down & captures Bablu along with 3 other friends who he thinks have played a part in his daughter becoming runaway bride. Bablu & Dimpy fall in love with each other against all odds & are adamant to convince Prakash Raj to accept their love!
Performances: A lot of expectations are attached with Tiger Shroff with his signature dialogue â€œHeropanti, sabko aati nahin, meri jaati nahinâ€ already being a hit among the audience. However, Tiger fails to give expressions in the movie & delivers even the simplest of dialogues with a lot of effort. Only good thing about his performance, are the action sequences but that too becomes repetitive over a period of time. Kriti Sanon on the other hand came out as a surprise package who manages to convince in her role as the bratty Dimpy. Prakash Raj as always, is exceptional, this time in the role of a father who loves his daughters unconditionally.
Direction: Sabbir Khan, who did his directorial debut with 'Kambakkht Ishq' does not seem to have grown much as a Director with 'Heropanti'. A few scenes in the movie just pop out of nowhere with no logical explanation, affecting the flow. Heropanti being a remake of the Telugu movie 'Parugu' with almost every scene copy-pasted, is still not upto the mark.
Music: Composed by famous brothers Sajid-Wajid, music is certainly one of the few good things about the movie. However, songs have been inserted for no good reason at places not required.
Combo on offer: Overall, Heropanti which stars the debut of Tiger Shroff has been overshadowed by co-star Kriti Sanon and rest of the movie is saved by Prakash Raj's performance. The concept of the movie is fresh in Bollywood with an interesting start, but later too much of emotional 'tadka' makes the movie a little dull to watch. Tiger's dialogue delivery & expression gave us a good laugh in a few scenes, which is worth watching. Heropanti is not one of those movies you will regret missing! However, if you don't have anything else to do then you can go for it to pass your time.
Our Verdict: We give Heropanti #Slaps for concentrating more on Tiger's body than his acting skills.
