Sarbjit Movie Review:
Sarbjit is a landmark movie with great performances and a superb narrative. the actors have given their best performances. The Movie opened to a positive response at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, but critics in India have given a mixed response.
Performance: Coming to the performances of Sarbjit’s star cast, Randeep is the ultimate winner among all. From delivering their Punjabi accent fluently to his impeccable acting (especially during the jail sequences), he truly won our hearts. Considering the hype created around Aishwarya’s character, our expectations of the gorgeous beauty were quite high. There were a few scenes, which needed the fluent Punjabi accent, but she fell flat.
However, you can feel the immense pain of a sister in Aishwarya’s eyes and her expressions throughout the film. There, Aishwarya shines! Most of Sarbjit’s sequences showcase painful incidents, but there are a few happy moments in Dalbir & Sarabjit’s life and their sweet sibling fight will warm the cockles of your heart. Richa Chadha & Darshan Kumar are mere side actors in the film and they don’t have much to do in the film.
Sarbjit Music: There is a Total of 9 Songs in this movie. Salamat, Nindiya, Dard, Rabba, Allah Hu Allah, Tung Lak, Meherbaan, Barsan Laagi, Mera Junoon. The music for this movie is composed by Amaal Mallik, Jeet Gannguli, Shail-Pritesh, Tanishk Bagchi, and Shashi Shivam. The first song of this movie “Salamat” was released on 18th April 2016.
Technicalities: Coming to the direction of the film, as we mentioned above, we praise the effort and thought of Omung Kumar for bringing out such a unique kind of biopics. But the overuse of melodrama and lectures ended up making the film look draggy and in spite of having a touching storyline, many shots of the film went untouched. There is a scene, wherein Sarbjit meets his family in jail for the first time after years and it’s natural that the audience expects a really heart-rending conversation among them, which again just didn’t come out effectively on the screen! Verdict: Sarbjit could have been better, but it turns out to be a flawed story-telling that fails to connect with the audience. But you can give it a shot for Randeep Hooda’s outstanding performance.
Sarbjit Movie Rating: 3/5
