Tiger Shroff’s debut film Heropanti has been the talk of the town for quite sometime now. The film is a remake of Telugu superhit film Parugu. Also, newcomer Kriti Sanon is paired opposite Tiger Shroff.
Here goes Heropanti‘s long story cut short:
Choudhary’s (Prakash Raj) elder daughter Renu (Sandeepa Dhar) runs away with some not-so-important person. Angry Choudhary sends his goons to nab the two. Unable to find them he kidnaps the boy’s friends and one among the friends is the dashing, super cool Bablu (Tiger Shroff).
Then love at first sight happens to dear Bablu and he falls for Dimpy(Kriti Sanon). Trouble is, she is Chaudhary’s younger daughter. And so from here on we see Bablu showing off his heropanti and trying to win over Dimpy and change daddy’s stony heart.
The makers of the film did put it a lot of effort trying to make the typical South Indian film suitable for Bollywood. Tiger Shroff is pretty good at martial arts and it shows. However, there is less of action and more of drama.
Tiger Shroff does a good job of making you go aww at times. Sometimes he just lacks the seriousness that a rugged hero needs. Kriti Sanon is impressive although she barely has anything to say all through the film.
All in all Heropanti is worth watching once. Heropanti is director Sabbir Khan’s second film, the first being Kambaqt Ishk. The film has some repeated, over rated dialogues, fairly good music and lots and lots of melodrama. Some dialogues will remind you of those 80s action films and the end will make you wonder if you just watched a rip off of DDLJ
