Soorma : Another biopic of this year is released this Friday. Based on the life of Former Captain of Indian Men’s Hockey Team, Sandeep Singh, who is also known as Flicker Singh, this biographical movie is directed by Shaad Ali.
Film covers events of Sandeep’s life that made him the star he is Today. After an accidental gunshot injured him in 2006, he was paralyzed. But once a warrior, always a warrior. So, he bounced back with a bang. And that’s why this film is called Soorma, meaning warrior.
Diljit Dosanjh plays the titular role of Sandeep Singh Soorma. Taapasee Pannu is there as his love interest whose influence made him to join hockey in early days. The chemistry between these two is superb. I loved the love song featuring these two. It is indeed this year’s best love song!
Diljit Paaji is as usual fantastic. Some character needs simplicity as well as complexity, and Diljit has given perfectly as per the requirement. Taapasee looks adorable and acts fine in her role. Satish Kaushik and his on screen brother are good to see. Kulbhushan Kharbanda is good. Special mention for Vijay Raaz. Whenever he comes on screen, public will laugh and enjoy! He is the true entertainer. Good job by him as Sandeep’s coach.
Music by Shankar Ehsan Loy trio and lyrics by Gulzar sahab are again on the right track. After the soulful songs in Raazi, here they are giving us some hardcore Punjabi songs. Ishq Di Baajiyaa is one of the most pure and realistic songs one can ever make. Soorma Anthem is good, too. Pardesiya is very soulful. Singers of this song are contestants of Rising Stars where Diljit and Shankar appear as judges.
I was expecting a lot form Shaad Ali. Thus, I am disappointed with him. Ok Jaanu was a superb movie, but it’s not up to that mark. Film lacks in some parts. It is slow paced, so the fault is in the screenplay. However, it can not be in the best biopics ever made. Though, it surely is an one time watch film to know the story of Sandeep Singh.
Film will manage to recover its cost of making. It is not a bad movie, just not a solid one. So, whoever will watch it, will give a thumps up for sure. You will surely love the equation between Diljit and Pannu. Get inspire from the legend!
