Sarbjit Movie Review: Randeep's drama, Aishwarya's melodrama

Sarbjit, Randeep Hooda, Aishwarya Rai, Pakistan Jail, Biography, Movie Review
New Delhi :
  • Sarbjit is a biographical movie based upon a true incident of an Indian man lodged in Pakistan jail and her sister's struggle to get him free.

  • Randeep Hooda as Sarbjit has performed one of his finest acts so far. From being tortured in jail to having traumatic experience in mind, he talks with his expressions and let audiences feel the pain.

  • Aishwarya Rai on the other hand had to be loud as Dalbir but she forced in some extra efforts which somehow pushed the whole act towards melodrama tag.

  • Bhushan Kumaar and Richa Chadda are other promising stars in the film and they have beautifuly justified their characters. Since the film was more focused over the lead characters, the other main characters missed the lime light.

  • Omung Kumar as director also kept himself below his potential. After movies like Mary Kom and Waqt, the expectations were real high from him. He does give that pinch at several occasions but as an overall drama, we can term it as good direction if not the best one.

  • Since it is a biographical drama, so you won’t find any reason to get surprised with the script; but what makes it interesting is the cinematography.

  • Songs are well placed and played, engagement for the film sticks with them.

  • Many real life incidents like Parliament attack and Mumbai Taj attack have been inducted in the movie but they fail to leave an impact they should have. 

  • A lot of elements killed the strong pitch script already had in itself.

  • Overall, the film gets a one-time watch tag and the credit for the same goes to Randeep Hooda. He must get all the praise here.

  • Still confused over watching the film? Watch trailer here:
