One tough guy (not by facial expressions though) and a sweet innocent girl fall in love with each other. The shirtless guy fights with the girl's 'bad man' daddy and his goons. The girl at little intervals shows off her curvy waist. Is it all that today's audience wants to watch in a movie? Well, the answer is certainly a big NO.
The movie Heropanti is actually all about the age-old love tale where two lovers have to face a strong opposition from the girl's angry daddy and the couple eventually fight all the odds only to live happily ever after.
Although Tiger was impressive with his high-flying action stunts (followed by an unusual cute smile on the camera after each kick and punch), he definitely has a long way to go when in comes to acting and attaining the necessary charm of a Bollywood actor. The heroine on the other side has very little to show off in the film other than some tears rolling down her cheeks and occasionally her smooth waist.
To talk about the story of the film, it is something like the Jurassic-era story where a next-door-but-tough boy and a pretty innocent girl fall for each other, but the heroine's villainous father stands like a pillar between their perfect love story. While Heropanti impresses in the action department, the film has nothing new to offer in terms of story and falls prey to done-to-death Bollywood clichés.
Like any other Bollywood masala flick, the hero of Heropanti, Tiger (Bablu) fears of nothing and is adamant to get his lady love, while the antagonist daddy with a huge gang of his goons will do everything possible and sometimes impossible to cease their love.
But the most predictable part of the flick is its climax, which surely reminds us of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. However, DDLJ (1995) with several other positive aspects was a blockbuster hit, but Heropanti has very little for the much more demanding 2014 audience.
Director of Heropanti Sabbir Khan was too predictable and orthodox in his narration with some truly forced songs and dances, in which extras are seen 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?"
