Movie Info- Heropanti

Jackie Shroff started his acting career in the Hindi film industry with 'Hero' in 1983 that earned the status of a super hit movie at the Indian box office, giving Jackie Shroff an instant stardom. 

And now, 30 years later, Jackie Shroff's son is starting his 'filmy' career with a flick that is similarly titled- Heropanti! the story line appears to be on similar lines too- daughter of a powerful dad and the not so well off "hero" that she falls for.

'Heropanti', which also stars newcomer Kriti Sanon, is directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and UTV Motion Pictures. 

The movie is said to be a remake of the Telugu film Parugu, with Prakash Raj playing the same role from the original film. It is also the debut movie for 21 of the actors. Some parts of the movie has been shot at in Kashmir, including the romantic song Rabba. The music of the film, composed by Sajid Wajid with Manj Musik as guest composer, has been declared a mass hit with 4 of the songs making it in the Bollywood top 10 charts.

The movie released on 23rd May and has been declared a smash hit by film analyst, Taran Adarsh, who tweeted- 

[Week 2] Fri 2.07 cr, Sat 2.59 cr, Sun 3.63 cr, Mon 1.87 cr, Tue 1.69 cr. Grand total: ₹ 47.76 cr nett. India biz. SMASH HIT.

For Sajiadwala, this is big since his 2 States has already crossed the '100 crore mark' and 'Highway' did well at the box office as well.

What kind of reviews has it gotten?

Taran Adarsh gave it 3.5 in Bollywood Hungama, calling it an entertainer that hits the right notes. However, we feel that he's always too generous in his ratings.

Subhash K. Jha gave it 3.5 stars in Times Of India, saying that Shroff delivers a rare combination of romantic and action oriented protagonist.

Anupama Chopra, gave the movie 2 stars in Hindustan Times, criticizing the movie as being "disjointed narrative brims with low-IQ high-testosterone men brandishing weapons. The women are puppets who either simper or scream." Now, her we believe.

To Watch or Not?

We say, if you love desi action, 8 packs ab display (yes, the junior Shroff, being today's hero, certainly keeps up with the times and sports perfect abs) and sweet looking fresh face (who in this case is a Delhi gal with a degree in Electronics, we hear)- go for it. If you love "heropanti" (meaning the act of acting like a hero), go watch it. Otherwise, this one, inspite of being declared a smash hit, despite the interest generated due to Shroff junior, is really at best a home watch.

 The "ABCD" couple said:

My wife and I are both born and raised here. We never watched Hindi movies and don't really know of Indian sites to visit. A friend's newsfeed led us to desideewar and ever since desideewar does 'keeps us connected to our roots"....we are thankful for our discovery of "fun, interesting and inspirational" stories from 'des'- exactly what it promises! Please never stop :)....
