With the stock of a trailer with so much action, stunts and the scenery captured in a way gratifying the viewer, it seems the movie was quite surreal when it extended from two minutes to a little over two hours. With a chiseling body Tiger Shroff exuded some moves in Heropanti. But when it came to acting he just couldn’t capitalize.
We talk a lot about how Bollywood is entertaining, but no one sees past the naive and cheesy acts in the movies. For starters, even the name of the movie was a borrowed one. The premise is picked up from the Indonesian hit Raid, and if that wasn’t enough, the screenplay and dialogues were terrible.
Tiger Shroff just couldn’t move past the words, “Abhi toh maine start kia hai”. Shraddha Kapoor kept the same demeanour as from the movie Ek Villain. With Sanjeev Datta’s debut writing experience, which is conjured from the diverse releases from Bollywood movies and Sabir Khan’s consistant work of directing muddled movies continues.
Though the action looks quite captivating, the same cannot be said about other aspects. Tiger Shroff’s and Shraddha Kapoor’s acting succumbs to keep the film entertaining. The film falls flat with the humdrum nature of the screenplay and the lack of originality.
The Last Word:
Though an interesting choice of playgarism has yielded the movie a bit of attention, the film has only a tidbit to offer besides the hand-to-hand fights and the kicks of Tiger. The film is tacky and it lacks a strong plot, but the cinematography and the scenic beauty somewhat pleases the eye.
My Rating: 2/5.
