Movie Review: Super Singh

You already saw the fresh and vibrant look of the promising Super Singh, starring one of Punjab's finest, Diljeet Dosanjh, fresh off his role in Phillauri, only to return in scintillating form for his next venture. If you haven't seen the poster of his new movie, we suggest you click here

When news broke out of the first ever Punjabi superhero film being released, there was quite a ruckus. People all across the Tricity sat wide-eyed in anticipation, waiting eagerly to see whether this movie offered an innovative plot, or chose to revolve around the same old beaten lines. The fact that the movie starred Diljit Dosanjh was an added advantage since the singer-actor has been creating a lot of waves recently. A recurrent part of the citizens' adulation and appreciation, Dosanjh has constantly vowed us in all of his roles, be it the policeman in Udta Punjab, or his other key roles in Sardaar ji, Ambarsariya etc. 

Helmed by director Anurag Singh, who achieved recognition and fame after his earlier ventures such as Jatt and Juliet 1 & 2 and Punjab 1984, Super Singh will be remembered for its hilarious jokes, its recurrent gags and its constant ability to leave the audience in a fit. Though thoroughly enjoyable and vastly entertaining, the movie lacks a concrete plot, a disadvantage that begins to hamper the pace of this superhero flick into the second half, where the jokes begin to run a little dry. A lot of the film's main moments and jokes rely on the shoulders of their leading man Dosanjh, who successfully delivers on all fronts, except being taken seriously as a superhero. His boyish charm and impeccable timing is what makes this film a hit with the audiences, not the poorly developed script, or a laughable villain who incites more laughs than fear.

Right from the start of the movie, you can see where the plot is headed. A Punjabi boy falls in love with a girl, and his only purpose in life, something the plot tries to emphasize on, is to somehow make the girl of his dreams reciprocate his emotions towards her. So somewhere in the movie, expect the hero to go on about proclaiming his undying love for the heroine, expecting things to work out EXACTLY as he plans, because why not? An optimism that is beyond believable or palatable is expressed in the hero's character, and that basically is one of the few things that brings down an otherwise brilliant first half. The witty dialogues, the laugh out loud moments and the on-screen chemistry between Diljit and Sonam Bajwa is an absolute delight to watch and is enough to keep the audiences smiling widely when intermission pops up on the screen. 

Had the director chosen an actor other than Dosanjh, the movie would have failed to impress the audiences. Singh gambles a lot when he focuses the majority of his movie on his leading man, who basically is a part of every frame of the film. Other than that, Diljit and Sonam appear comfortable on screen, and their romance is enough to draw out more than a few whistles into the first half of the film. However, the weak plot and the same old overused formula of a superhero backstory is doomed from the start. It doesn't invoke interest, neither does it leave the audience in awe, which is what superhero films are meant to do. Terrible visual effects make the film appear sloppy and unpolished, a move that could have been prevented. 

Director Singh isn't to blame. He came up with an innovative idea and made every effort to share his concept with the audience. However, he failed in the execution of his brilliant idea, since as the movie progresses, the jigsaw plot, the never-ending loopholes, and the ludicrous stunts never seem to come together.  

All in all, the movie is a pleasant watch solely because of Diljit. His comedic presence and irresistible aura will guide you through the two and a half hours length of this movie.
