Heropanti 2 could have been a fun action entertainer like Tiger Shroff’s earlier films. Sadly, this one is riddled with a poor storyline. Ahmed Khan’s direction further spoils the show. The back and forth narrative gets too much after a point and moreover, logic takes a backseat and how. There are clear continuity issues too. The climax is intended to be unique and nail-biting. However, it comes across as unexciting and insipid. Tiger Shroff’s performance is sincere and he makes the film bearable. His action, as always, is top-class. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is strictly okay. Tara Sutaria goes overboard. Amrita Singh is average and her track is unconvincing. Uday Mahesh, last seen as Chellam Sir in The Family Man 2, fails to impress this time. Songs are poor. The Sufi track however will work individually, though it gives a déjà vu of ‘Kun Faya Kun’. All in all, avoid Heropanti 2 at all costs.
My rating – * ½ out of 5!
