Soorma – Flawless Victory Of Diljit Dosanjh As Actor
Diljit Dosanjh is amongst those actors who are considered effortless actors. With the kind of films Diljit Dosanjh has started his Bollywood career one should give the credit to him for selecting films which are different from one another and offer complete entertainment package. From Udta Punjab to Phillauri and from Sajjan Singh Rangroot to Soorma, every film of Diljit offer different characters played uniquely. Diljit’s latest film if Soorma and it’s based on the real life story of Indian Hockey player Sandeep Singh. The biopics are in fashion and they aren’t always easy to make. From Mary Kom to Milkha Singh and from Sanju to Soorma every film needs detailing and depth in playing the main leads. Let’s see what Soorma has to offer.
Soorma revolves around Sandeep Singh’s life, how he starts hockey with only one focus in mind that is to marry the love of his life Harpreet Kaur, who’s also a hockey player. With consistency and determination Sandeep gets selected in Indian Hockey team and becomes the most loved player of the country but unfortunately he faces an accident which leaves him paralyzed from abdomen. What happens next is an emotional, power-packed and sentimental series of events which makes Soorma a real winner.
Performance wise, Diljit Dosanjh gives a spectacular performance. He nails the character of Sandeep Singh. Diljit has innocence in his eyes and he projects romance with flawlessness on silver screen. Diljit’s emotional scenes are clap-worthy and they make audience wet their eyes unknowingly. Diljit is the soul of Soorma. Tapsee Pannu looks good and does justice with her character. In a few scenes she excels as well. Vijay Raaz is spectacular in Soorma; his dialogues are powerful and he enjoys enacting them on-screen.
Angad Bedi is superb. Kulbhushan Kharbanda is another veteran in the film who has only 2 to 3 scenes but he proves that he’s one legendary actor from the days of “Ajeeb jaanwar hai jitna bhi khhaye bhooka he rehta hai” (Shakaal in Shaan) to “Main he federation hoon” (Soorma), Kharbanda excelled in every role in his own style.
Direction of Soorma is first rate; there are a few scenes which are spot on. They are executed with brilliance, keeping the human elements and emotional quotients in focus. Shaad Ali (director of Soorma) gives a very effective film after ages, according to me last was Saathiya, with Kill Dil and Jhoom Baraabar Shaad catered to masses but with Soorma he’s in for quality-conscious cine-goers. Music of Soorma is effective and as per the mood of the film.
Soorma is a family entertainer which offers loaded performances, feel good climax; cute romance which is rarely seen on celluloid and it has great dialogues. Watch Soorma and treat yourself.
