Movie: Heropanti 2
Cast: Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, Nawazuddin Siddiqui
Director: Ahmed Khan
Over the years we have formed a template of reviews wherein the first paragraph is all about writing in brief about the premise of the film. This is to give the audience a glimpse about what the film has to offer. But what to do about films that have no story line? That’s something we need to ponder about as in today’s time, most of the Hindi films are devoid of even a concrete plot. One of those is Heropanti 2 fronted by Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
The Ahmed Khan directorial has no story line. It’s just a culmination of some action blocks inter-tweaked with randomly infused songs (which often has no context to the film’s world), humour and a bit of romance and emotion. Since there is no story in the film, it’s better to judge the film for what we saw on the big screen. Heropanti 2 is all positioned as an action franchise, but the action scenes are badly shot and choreographed. The stunts devoid of any thrill or elevation points, but just rather a showcasing of Tiger jumping from one place to another. The actor has the spark to do never seen before action, but he needs a director who can make optimum utilisation of his talent by getting other pre-requisites in pace, rather than just exploiting his action image without any other padding.
From Heropanti to Heropanti 2, Tiger is getting monotonous performing the same form of action, with almost a similar set of expressions. The next element infused in Heropanti 2 is humour (at-least that’s what the makers thought), and it’s highly unfunny. The comic sequences in the film are so loud that they go into the irritating space after a point of time. While some dialogues might have landed better in the comic space with better actors, Tiger and Tara Sutaria, ensure that they all fall flat. The less we speak of romance the better it would be as this Ahmed Khan film has one of the weirdest romantic tracks in the history of Hindi cinema. The climax of Heropanti 2 is a straight rip off from Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut, Kick. We kid you not, it’s a bad replica of Kick’s climax.
