Heropanti 2 Movie Review: Only high on action, nothing elseModified On: 29 April 2022 | Reviewed By: Team Moviekoop
Storyline: Babloo Ranawat (Tiger Shroff), a genius hacker, is tasked with tracking down Laila (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), the mastermind behind the world's largest cybercrime yet to occur. Whether Babloo is able to stop him is the story.
Heropanti 2 Movie Review: In Heropanti 2 the premise is predictable: Babloo is an unstoppable one-man army on a mission to track down the baddies and beat them into pulp in order to protect the world from cyber-crime. But apart from this basic plotline, Sajid Nadiadwala’s franchise Heropanti 2, serves up a lot more for the action-movie buffs.
As with Ahmed Khan previous films, the story takes a back seat to the prospect of watching a hot hunk engage in a high-octane stunt duel. The first half is a little off-kilter and takes a while to settle in, post-interval one can expect a lot of stunts, thrills, twists and just enough masala and explosions to keep viewers entertained. The film excels in action set pieces by Ram Chella- Lakshman Chella, Parvez Shaikh & Kecha Khamphakdee, but it also delivers some unbelievable action choreography in which the hero and even his phone survive a major explosion. Eventually, Rajat Arora’s writing falls flat and takes the audience's sensibility for granted. The story tries to be overwhelmingly larger than life, but in the process, it loses logic and becomes preposterous.
Laila, a hobbyist magician and cybercrime kingpin, is on the verge of robbing the Indian government. CBI has hired Babloo to prevent this calamitous event from happening. Will Babloo be able to catch Laila, who always seems to be ten steps ahead of everyone? Will his love, Inaaya Saran (Tara Sutaria), a self-made billionaire and Laila's sister, get him into more trouble and become a roadblock for him? Or is it simply a honey trap for Babloo or vice versa? Things reveal themselves in layers as the story progresses, keeping the audience engaged.
Ahmed Khan and his action team have designed the stunts of the film to recreate thrills that one would usually watch in movies like Mission Impossible and Fast And Furious. And while the action is relentless and the dialogue is entertaining, the predictable storytelling in this film leaves a lot to be desired.

Tiger’s smouldering on-screen intensity, as well as the high-flying action, are both fascinating. His dialogue, ‘sabko aati nahi, meri jaati nahi,' is a perfect fit for his personality and the stunts. Tara’s role is limited to mostly managing to up the glamour quotient of the movie. She is seen running around in high heels with Babloo, which is too tough to pull off in real life. Together, Tiger and Tara look good on-screen, but they don't have that sizzling chemistry to talk about. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is in top form in playing a negative role as Laila. He literally hypnotises the characters in the film and leaves the audience stunned with his superb act. Amrita Singh adds a sense of humour to the narrative.
AR Rahman’s score heightens the drama's feel. Among the rest of the songs ‘Whistle Baja 2.0’ is the most upbeat number, but you'll have to wait until the end of the movie to hear it. Tiger makes his singing debut with the song 'Miss Hairan,' which is quite surprising.
Like the typical masaladaar film, Heropanti 2 offers a little bit of everything—action, drama, music, romance and exotic locations. The screenplay makes room for a mix of commercial movie elements, but where the film is close is its action department, which probably only Tiger’s fans would appreciate.
