Heropanti 2 | No Rating Movie Review |Tiger Shroff | Nawazuddin Siddiqui
Lazy writing, poor execution and ridiculously stylised characters — Heropanti 2 goes from bad to worse. A sequel to Tiger’s debut film Heropanti (2014), this one is directed by Ahmed Khan, who also collaborated with Tiger for Baaghi 2 and Baaghi 3. It seems Khan is in a rut and isn’t even letting Tiger come out of the stories that don’t let him grow. Heropanti 2 is the story of a self-styled magician Laila (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who teams up with cyber genius and a hacker Babloo Ranawat (Tiger) to scam people via video games, hack their data and bank details, and rip them off their hard-earned money. In the process, Babloo gets romantically involved with Laila’s sister Inaaya (Tara Sutaria), who, for the longest time remains oblivious to his brother or boyfriend’s ill intentions. What happens when Inaaya finds the truth? What happens when the good guy Babloo turns bad and then again gets on a journey to become a good guy, is what the 2-hour-30-minute film takes you through. Heropanti 2 is extremely loud, over-the-top, illogical and tests your patience. It’s only Tiger’s envious dance moves and top-notch action that give you some 'paisa vasool' moments. And of course, musical renditions from AR Rahman, which might appear to be a misfit in the film, but bring some calm amid this noisy storm.
