A Good Entertainer!
26 May 2014 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

A remake of the 2008 Telugu film Parugu, 'Heropanti' is A Good Entertainer, that introduces two new-faces, Veteran Actor Jackie Shroff's Son Tiger & Kriti Sanon. And luckily, the new-comers pack a punch!

'Heropanti' Synopsis: When Renu (Sandeepa Dhar) runs away with her lover, her father Chaudhary (Prakash Raj) launches a manhunt to track them down and eliminate them. A livid Chaudhary soon discovers that Bablu (Tiger Shroff) is the man who has assisted the couple to elope & who also happens to be his daughter's lover's friend.

'Heropanti' is unabashedly aimed at the masses. Its an out-and-out commercial masala film, that offers everything that will be loved by the aam-junta. In short, a paisa-vasool entertainer, that aims for nothing else, but to entertain its viewer.

The Screenplay is interesting & well-paced, but there are a few shortcomings. While the first-hour moves with force, the second-hour is comparatively slow. The culmination, especially, is prolonged & doesn't leave much of an impact. Even the running-time for that matter of fact, could've been trimmed by at least 20-minutes. 146-Minutes seems a bit too long!

Sabir Khan has directed the film well. Cinematography is picture-perfect. Editing is fair. Action-Sequences/Stunts are tremendous! Music by Sajid-Wajid & Manj Musik, is fabulous.

Performance-Wise: Tiger makes an impressive debut. He's superb when it comes to doing action & dance. His impeccable flexibility & grace are impossible to ignore. However, his performance has a few rough edges. He certainly needs to work on his acting skills. But for a debut-performance, he shows potential. Kriti Sanon, also makes an impressive debut. She looks gorgeous & delivers a highly confident performance. Also, the on-screen paring of Tiger & Kriti, is exciting. Prakash Raj is first-rate. His emotional outburst in the second-hour, is brilliant. Sandeepa Dahr leaves a mark. Vikram Singh is effective in a brief role.

On the whole, 'Heropanti' works & welcomes two talented newbies - Tiger Shroff & Kirti Sanon.
