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!
Since this is a Bollywood movie, we’re offered the usual menu of masala – regression, blatant misogyny, brash jokes and awful stereotyping.
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, it will have you echoing the second most (over)used dialogue in the film,
"Kab jayegi teri heropanti?"
Director of Heropanti Sabbir Khan was too predictable and orthodox in his narration with some truly forced songs and dances in which extras are shaking their feet along with Tiger and Kriti.
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?"
