Super Singh Movie Review: It is Watchable Because of Diljit Dosanjh's Performance

Constructing comical plots around genuine problems and concerns related to a commoner has been the mantra for majority of the film's featuring actor Diljit Dosanjh. Take Sardaarji, Mukhtiar Chadha, Ambarsariya as key examples! Now, Super Singh joins the bandwagon.

Giving the devil his due, there is no denying the fact that Diljit's latest film keeps one engaged and amused right from start to finish.

Here you see a typical Punjabi lad whose only mission in life is to woo Kathy, a firang. Yes, there are moments that explain he has been rushing right in, expressing his undying love for her and expecting everything to work out just fine. So he does everything - taking up Rugby challenge without knowing anything about the sport - to warm up to her to ensure he fits into Canadian social milieu and waits for her to reciprocate his intentions. But as luck would have it, he sets himself up for failure.

The first half makes Super Singh a delight to watch. The audience is treated to multiple laugh out loud moments. The humour, as expected, is an offshoot of the witty dialogues that Diljit and his love interest Sonam Bajwa get.

So you hear lines like: "Ek taan mai Singh utton Shaktiman; or constant usage of greedy dogga; or Sonam taking a dig at Diljit for mispronouncing Belgium as Bulgum.

Given the fact Anurag Singh has directed the film, the focus is on Diljit. He is uninhibited, winsome and clued in. Both Diljit and Sonam evidently share a comfortable bonding, which is easily translated on the big screen. Their comic timing is precise and flawless.

Technically, Super Singh looks vibrant. The locations in Montreal are beautiful.

What works for Super Singh is that Diljit - both as a commoner and super hero keeps the gags coming. So the element of humour is consistently maintained.

Director Singh deserves credit for thinking different, aiming high to surprise viewers, but this time out, it doesn’t quite come together. The reason? There is no freshness in the script. All in all, predictable plot and safe script, dilutes the impact of the film.

Rating: 2.5/5
