This Sargi is partially delicious
Sargi is a romantic love triangle involving Rubina Bajwa, Jassi Gill and Babbal Rai. The story starts in Punjab where Jassi Gill is shown to be in love with Rubina since childhood but never had the courage to express his feelings. In order to provide a better living for her family, Rubina decides to do a sham marriage with Karamjit Anmol for immigration purposes and moves abroad with him. Unaware, Jassi was left heart broken. Rubina joins a restaurant run by B N Sharma, whose son Babbal Rai, falls in love with Rubina. When Jassi gets to know about Rubina's sham marriage, he also moves abroad and joins the same restaurant in quest to get his love. Now begins the game of one-upmanship among Jassi, Babbal and Karamjit. Jassi or Babbal, whom does Rubina choose forms the rest of the story.
The first half sets up the traditional form of romance with Jassi head over heels in love with Rubina but failing to express his feelings. This half is little slow but has a nice charm. After the Interval, there is a sense of deja-vu with Babbal Rai trying to woo Rubina and then the game of one-upmanship amongst the suitors of Rubina. In short it can be said that the second half doesn't comes through as good as first half despite both having routine stuff. Climax is good but stretched, should have been little shorter.
Jassi Gill gives an earnest performance. Rubina Bajwa is just about OK and is nowhere near Neeru Bajwa, her sister in terms of acting or beauty. Babbal Rai never comes across as convincing. B N Sharma is as usual- good and Karamjit has done many similar roles but was able to provide few laughs here and there. Music is below average considering it's a love story. Background music is good especially the slower one during romantic scenes between Jassi and Rubina.
Love stories mostly work on treatment and chemistry between the lead actors with a routine framework. Neeru Bajwa – debutant director of this movie, has done just about decent job with the treatment. The track between Jassi and Rubina is really sweet and one can connect to it but the same can't be said about rest of the tracks in the movie which actually has let this movie down along with the lack of good music.
I won't call it a bad movie but surely it could have been much better seeing how well the Jassi and Rubina track kept me connected. It's surely a good one time watch.
