Sarbjit Movie Review
Rating: 2/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV Movies
Omung Kumar’s Sarbjit is a film trapped in no man’s land. Based on a news real-life story, it takes cavalier liberties with reality. The result is a disappointment of monumental proportions.
Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan is woefully miscast as the dogged sister of the titular character.Unfortunately, she has only two and a half scenes at best in which to display her wares. It is obvious that the strategy is to not let her upstage the ‘bigger’ star. With the star not shining all that bright and the actors in the mix not allowed to play the game their way, Sarbjit is a well-meaning outing that fails to do justice to its subject.Watch it only if you are an Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan fan no matter what.
Rating: 2/5. Review by Surabhi Redkar on Koimoi
A contrived plot and over the top performance by Aish makes this movie a lengthy affair. For not doing justice to the actual Sarabjit issue, I’d say this film is passable.Sarbjit fails to rise above its commercial nature to actually hit you in the gut with its real story.
Rating: 2/5. Review by Kaleem Aftab on thenational
The movie transforms into a campaign film, not for Singh but for all prisoners languishing behind bars because of hostile political relations between countries – as if one case means everyone has suffered an injustice simply because of their passport. It seems a tenuous argument.
Rating 2.5/5. Manjusha Radhakrishnan on Gulf News
Rai Bachchan is making a plea to all to be humane, however some of her voice is drowned as the makers are desperate to make it an edible film for the Bollywood movie fans who like a bit of dance and drama.
