Screenplay & Direction
Screenplay was given by Suyash Trivedi, Shaad Ali & Shiva Ananth. In this type of biopic movie screenplay plays very important role, if it is best your biopic will be better.In the field of screenplay this movie gets the clapping for it. Although dialogues are not that much impactful, it creates magic that it needed. After “Saathiya” this film comes on the second place in the field of direction. In between no movie of Shaad Ali’s creates the record on the box office as well as not critically acclaimed. Direction is not much impactful because direct the biopic is very tough job & he has taken the risk, he success in it a little-bit.
Cinematography & Editing
Cinematography not played much part in this film but it is so so. The toughest part in the movie based on real life story is editing & Farooq Hundekar has done the fantastic job story creates the aura around you & it does not slip anywhere. You will find the continuation in it.
All the actors has done their part very heartily but the main character that is played by actor-singer Diljit Dosanj & he has done magnificent job in the role of Sandeep Singh. Bikramjit Singh the elder brother’s of Sandeep Singh played by Angad Bedi. Chemistry between these two guys is awesome. Chemistry between Seema Kaushal who has played Diljit’s mother’s character & Diljit him self is also impactful. Tapsee Pannu has played the role of Harpreet Kaur who is also an Indian Hockey player. She has done her part good but her role has not portrayed very well. Satish Kaushik has played her role very sincerely.
Music of the Shankar Ehsaan Loy is soulful two songs has left the impression on the mind. One is soorma title song & other is ishq di baajiyaan. Lyrics of gulzaar is also meaningful. Background score is also good. Theme of the song “Ishq Di Baajiyan” plays in whole movie in background & it sounds very well.
If you are a Diljit Dosanj fan this movie is must for you.Overall impression of the movie is not as good as other biopic like Bhaag milkha bhaag but it is one time watch also for the inspiration to the nation & the courage of the sport person.
