Sixty six years since India became free, but are we still free to love, to choose our own life really? 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 Dimpy`s 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 doesn`t really tell a story. It is more of a showcase, a launch vehicle so to speak. Sabbir Khan directs the newcomers Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon in this topsy-turvy-misunderstood-young-hero-movie. The length of the film begs the question, how in the world is the story not going anywhere. Filled with cliches and standard characters, ... ...Read full review
The story takes you back to the early nineties. Except that the backdrop is now the north. Boy Babloo (Tiger Shroff) falls in love with the girl at first sight. She turns out to be daughter of a goon, who has captured him to get the address of the boy who has eloped with his older daughter. Soon, she too begins to have feelings for him. Father senses. Which way would the story go ahead now? It goes the same route as DDLJ or Maine Pyar Kiya. You go into the theatre expecting nothing from Tiger Shroff. The promos didn`t do him justice. But he has great screen presence and a certain awkwardness which makes him real and very endearing. He holds his own in emotional scenes with Prakash Raj. Dances like a dream (though he has to lose his ballet moments) and fights like he was born for it. A brilliant debut. Kirti Sanon. is sensational. Fresh moments in the film are only because of Tiger and her. ...Read full review
Not only does Heropanti borrow half its title from Shroff Sr`s breakout film, it also has the signature tune from Hero (1983) playing in the background repeatedly.Sabbir Khan`s second directorial venture after the infamous Akshay-Kareena starrer Kambakkht Ishq (yes, you may cringe now), Heropanti is a remake of a Telugu film - which is pretty obvious - and follows in the footsteps of the original, Parugu.Heropanti is set in what is referred to as "Jattland" in the film, and as news broadcasts will have informed you by now, love outside of caste/class and inside of gotra only results in death.When Chaudharyji (Prakash Raj`s) older daughter, Renu (Sandeepa Dhar) runs away with her lover, named Rakesh/Rajesh (since nobody could figure out what his name really is), he launches a manhunt to track them down and eliminate them. ...Read full review
I sometimes wonder, what facets remain to be explored in the romance genre by dream merchants here? Right from MUGHAL-E-AZAM to BOBBY, EK DUUJE KE LIYE, HERO, QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK, MAINE PYAR KIYA and DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE, to the love stories attempted by new-age directors of late, just about every facet of love and romance has been explored and presented on the silver screen. Every film-maker, from K. Asif, Raj Kapoor and Yash Chopra to Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, have delivered some memorable love stories that hold tremendous recall value.But pyaar, ishq, mohabbat can never go out of fashion. Besides, every film-maker has his/her individualistic style of interpreting a love tale ...Read full review
So, Heropanti is like DDLJ - wearing knuckle-dusters. The action is in `Jat-land` where rural lord Choudhary Suraj Singh (Raj) is celebrating the arranged marriage of his daughter Renu (Dhar). The wedding`s high Haryanvi style, all celebratory bullets and booze, chowmein eaten with dhai-kilo hands and relatives including an encounter specialist cop, a land shark badmaash and king of Delhi`s bouncers. But the `Kala Kutta` dries up when Renu elopes with Rakesh. In pursuit, her enraged relations capture Rakesh`s buddies - including Bablu (Shroff) who pummels the Haryanvis hard. Bablu`s fists stop flying when Dimpy - Suraj Singh`s younger daughter - arrives. Will his heroics win? ...Read full review
