Bollywood is already drooling over the elder Kaushal brother. Vicky Kaushal, from a humble debut with MASAAN, is now the darkish horse that filmmakers look as much as. In that mild, right here’s Sunny Kaushal, who hasn’t precisely made it massive but, however appears constant together with his efforts. After his debut stint SUNSHINE MUSIC TOURS AND TRAVELS which didn’t fairly hit the gold spot and a quick look in GOLD, right here’s he, together with his third outing, a dance drama. Does BHANGRA PAA LE turn into the game-changer, or does it not?
BHANGRA PAA LE revolves round Jaggi (Sunny Kaushal), a Punjabi lad and a vehement Bhangra fanatic. He will get via to a global aggressive platform and must win it over different contestants to exhibit the dance type to a bigger viewers. Nevertheless, Jaggi isn’t your common Bhangra man. He’s additionally making an attempt to transcend past a set dance type and produce flavours of fusion by merging Bhangra with a number of Western dance varieties. Parallel to this runs a narrative of Jaggi’s grandfather Kaptaan Singh (Sunny Kaushal), a warrior preventing the World Struggle II. Because it sounds, it is usually about how totally different generations are sure collectively within the essence of evergreen music and dance. Then comes Simi (Rukshar Dhillon), not as Sunny’s dreamy romantic companion however as his rival. A feisty Punjabi woman with a powerful grip of Punjabi folks steps, she is the daughter of a single mom. Will Jaggi handle to win the competitors, will his ardour for bhangra rub off on the viewers is what the remainder of the movie is?
The story (Dheeraj Rattan) shuttles between two totally different time intervals, making an attempt to ring a bell with comparable sorts of affection, loss and agony. Nevertheless, the depiction is moderately pressured. As a soldier who desires to return again dwelling to his ladylove, Sunny is relatably good. As a school man who’s unable to just accept his defeat, he doesn’t affect us a lot. Whereas the concept of an enthusiastic dancer upholding his artwork sounds good, the script, in actuality, is entangled. It slips off its tempo at occasions, and appears to focus an excessive amount of on the dance half, subsequently not sustaining its compactness. Additionally, in case you are somebody who has watched LOVE AAJ KAL, you’ll in all probability find yourself discovering a gallon of similarities!
BHANGRA PAA LE marks the directorial debut for Sneha Taurani, who has earlier assisted filmmakers resembling Ayan Mukerji and Mohit Suri. Her method in the direction of the story is recent, however the product seems to be mundane in lots of elements. It’s one factor that BHANGRA PAA LE has no extraordinary plots to give you, however Sneha’s try of spinning a predictable story may end in higher issues.
Coming to performances, whereas the field workplace wasn’t form to him in his first movie SUNSHINE MUSIC TOURS AND TRAVEL, Sunny Kaushal’s bought the mettle. You possibly can say that, taking a look at how he assimilates the vitality, ardour and willpower that his character calls for him to indicate. Including to that, he has actually put in noticeable efforts to grasp his steps. Rukshar is nice to take a look at when she grooves, however she but has a protracted option to go by way of performing. Rukshar and Sunny’s chemistry doesn’t prepare dinner up both. Shriya Pilgaonkar has a quick half to play, and along with her sober self.
The music has been labored upon, by younger, off beat and gifted composers resembling A Bazz, Rishi Wealthy and Yash Narvekar. However, 10 songs in 2 hours felt like an overdose, and not one of the songs actually stick with you. Moderately, the background rating is neat and situational, and enhances the moods. The cinematography (Jitan Harmeet Singh) is clear however provides no particular worth to the movie. Nevertheless, modifying (Antara Lahiri) has saved the movie to a big extent. If the time lapses went mistaken, we’d in all probability be left confused as to who was doing what.
On the entire, BHANGRA PAA LE is strictly common one-time watch with no exceptional performances. On the field workplace, it is going to go largely unrecognised.
