Heropanti 2 review: Tiger Shroff is the good-looking centre of this hodgepodge film

Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the villain who must be stopped. From overacting.

Tiger Shroff looks so much like his still gorgeous, mensch dad must have looked when younger, I find myself watching Heropanti 2 like a fan. Of the older Shroff. Flashes of Jackie make the young Tiger a very good looking man. And yes, he’s really good in the set pieces of action peppered across this otherwise fusion (read hotchpotch) dish called Heropanti 2.

Before we get hit by the action, it’s good to get a few observations out of the way: the hero rides either a bicycle or a Lamborghini. The girl always wears clothes that are barely there. And the villain has endless henchmen and an evil laugh.

Even though Tiger Shroff has a body that young men want, the story this hot bod finds himself in is so shallow, predictable and unoriginal, you feel bad for the lad. Why do the copyright owners of the Hero franchise not use their Lamborghini money on a story? Tiger Shroff is definitely in as good a shape as Tom Cruise. Then why are his Mission Impossible stories so lame?
