#Sarbjit; An Emotional Journey of Suffering and a sufferer !  

Saturday, May 21, 2016

Verdict: 3 /5 stars

I think we shouldn’t see this mirror in any critical manner; some perspective has bigger pain than analyzing the film. Our thrust should never be to torn something. Omung Kumar’s Sarbjit is a second biopic after Mary Kom which was not as deep like this, basically I was very disappointed with Mary Kom, Though this comeback is certainly not his best but it’s strong. I admire Omung Kumar for making Sarbjit alive once again in our moist eyes. Every biopic already has enough strength to convert into a good visuals whether it’s a story of a sports person or some politician or even business tycoons but very few has heart breaking quench and Sarbjit falls in this category. How he languished for more than two decades as a prisoner in Pakistani jail, convicted for espionage and bomb attack.

Almost every Indian knows about Sarbjit and how his life made news headlines here, which exuded his life in diplomatic monsoon. Screen opens with a search of Sarbjit dissolved into a beautiful backdrop of Punjab, where Director started back from 1984, how Sarbjit’s family happily moving with their small wishes. Here we saw a tragic story of his sister Dalbir Kaur but we suddenly moved to the main storyline. Over all 1st half was little howling, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is playing Sarbjit’s sister role was sometimes over dramatic, why Director wants her to scream, please do not do it, her beautiful face is not just to yell, she has more depth than that. But after interval when suffering gets some light automatically our senses start fighting with the emotional jolts.

Basically through Sarbjit’s sister we saw this journey but at the same time the negation of humanity, senseless political system and never ending fight of a normal people. One can easily understand the feeling of a family who is battling against all odds and the person who don’t know why he is in prison and for what he has been punished for so long.

Randip Hooda is at his best, I am watching him since ‘D’ and I must appreciate his endeavor that lingers him in a good league of actors. Richa Chadda played his wife’s role, she is not very vocal but her silence makes you cry for sure, a shot when Dalbir Kaur attempts suicide, the performance she delivers is a crux of her acting skills. Cinematography is good, some shots are memorable, the one where we have 1st encounter with the cage of Sarbjit.

May this film looks little lengthy but suffering is endless.
