Story line: Rising from present India in the conflicting era of shining modernity and deep-rooted archaic traditions in the era of big city versus small towns, comes a love story sealed with an impossible fate. The story of the bold Bablu and the bratty Dimpy. Will Bablu and Dimpys love blossom under the terror of a brutal clan and the violent landscape it is set against. Heropanti is the story of today’s youth, and the coming of age of its conflicting protagonists.
Heropanti movie is the remake of 2008 Telugu movie Parug. It is the story of these two young conflicting protagonists, their battles with society and their coming of age love story.
Know more about the captain of the Ship, the director: Sabbir’s childhood was particularly formative, as he was literally born and raised within the Hindi Film industry. His father was a lyricist in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The loss of his mother at a very early age and being raised by a single parent meant endless trips to movie and recording studios, where he watched; unknowingly learnt; from the greatest names in Hindi Cinema. He spent much of his sophomore years aimlessly dreaming of, being in movie studios and making films. So after dabbling in trivial part-time advertising jobs, he began his journey into Direction.
He assisted two maverick film makers, Mahesh Bhatt and David Dhawan, initially. Having worked on a couple of films with both the Directors respectively, he became permanently involved in Sajid Nadiadwala’s company, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, in various capacities, also graduating to directing music videos and trailers.
He later wrote the screenplay for Kambakkht Ishq , after having discarded two previous attempts
My Gut Feel and comments:
Where hindi cinema is evolving and experimenting a lot here comes a star son who has been launched in a typical manner with typical story line. It takes an extra ordinary effort to pull out a typical story and screenplay which has been presented on celluloid N number of times in the past.
Nevertheless, if the narration is up beat, engaging and entertaining then no once can stop this star son’s launching movie a big success which seems to have a slight chance in case of heropanti.
Tiger shroff appeals to be a disciplined and grounded star son and I hope at least his work and hardwork would be appreciated however as I go by promos of the movie he need to work harder on acting skills and it doesn’t seems to be effortless.
I love to be proved wrong however as I go by my gut feel Heropanti seems to be an average movie with same stuff which we have seen several time in the past.
I would give this movie 2.5 stars out of 5 , five days before the release.
