Lack of substance
Before watching the film I heard the track 'Jane Dil' (which I love), so I imagined that the movie would also deliver an emotionally charged experience. It doesn't.
The opening sequence with Binnu Dhillon narrating is excellent and seems to set up a clever comedy: however it's short-lived. It's a typical slapstick Punjabi comedy with cheap laughs for the most part.
There are too many characters that serve no role and are wasted I.e. Rana Ranbir, Sardar Sohi and from my perspective too many subplots I.e. Binnu Dhillon 'running away' in Canada that add no value.
The story is meant to focus on the relationship between Amrinder Gill and Amrit Maghera but there's simply no chemistry between them or character development or anything really. Amrinder does however put in a good performance, whilst Amrit despite having potential, is a bit emotionless and robotic in her delivery.
I wouldn't watch it twice.
