Seems like it’s real life stories season in Bollywood. Come what may they somehow manage to reach your heart and stay there for sometime. If the story is helmed by talent like Omung Kumar then the film is definitely worth a watch.
Sarbjit needs no story explanation. Post the trailer Google was helpful enough for everyone to know everything about Sarbjit. Film gets noticed for the execution and above all brilliant performances from every single actor.
Sarbjit touches the right chord emotionally. The scene where Sarbjit meets his family in jail will surely leave you teary eyed. Omung Kumar do seem lost in the first half but overall Sarbjit just wins your heart.
Randeep Hooda as Sarbjit is phenomenal. He has put in his heart and soul to make the original character alive and more importantly believable. Strongest contender for best actor trophy at award seasons next year. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is in a never seen before avatar. Decades back she gave such strong performances. With Sarbjit she is back as a powerhouse performer and also hints directors that she is back in action. Richa Chadha is from different planet of actors where they know nothing less than best. Minimal dialogues and powerful scenes are superbly performed by her. Darshan Kumaar shines in his limited role. Through Sarbjit he just proves his versatility.
Omung Kumar has succeeded with flying colours in bringing this emotional story on celluloid. Sarbjit already had great story, engaging screenplay, noteworthy production and costume design. Editing was good. Songs at times seemed forced but background score was bang on adding the required intensity to the scene.
Overall Sarbjit makes for a great watch. Recommended.
