Bhangra Paa Le Review: It can make you dance, yet no such fun factor
2018 was high on the kid as Vicky Kaushal got honors. For playing a military man in Uri: The Surgical Strike. This year starts with his more youthful sibling Sunny Kaushal admonishing you to go along with him for bhangra. The dance film Bhangra Paa Le may vacillate on numerous levels – from its storyline, content, account, and speed. To anticipate that Sunny should move into your souls with his presentation.
He’s beguiling, persuading, and knows his qualities and shortcomings, and would he be able to move! As the team light up the screen and consume the floor with their bhangra moves.
Low maintenance DJ Jaggi Singh (Sunny Kaushal) is a bhangra champ. Whose fantasy is to win the school title and reach the bhangra fight in London. Running a similar race is Amritsar’s best ‘female’ bhangra artist, Simi Kohli (Rukhsar Dhillon). Who needs to win the opposition. Be finished with her “exhausting family ancestry.” The rest you have now watch in scores of movies prior.
Slice to the pre-Independence period.
We’re moved to World War II, where Captain Jaggi’s granddad. As his confidants begin losing trust, he gets a dhol and siphons them up with traditional social dance. Amid a flashback progression! Thus, bhangra is in their qualities. There’s even a discourse in the film: ‘Log bhangra seekhte hain, hamare toh khoon mein hai.’
With two stories going to and fro as expected so flawlessly. I might want to consider it a savvy move and cunning course. Yet with a weak content that once in a while enrolls; all you get in the end is an anticipated arrangement of situations developing consistently. Just redeeming quality is the perky dance numbers that cause you to sit up and groove a bit. There are 11 of them! The one that genuinely strikes the harmony is Bhangra Paa Le (from Karan Arjun). Even though the cheerful soundtrack resembles the film’s foundation. After a point, the redundant dance groupings get an excessive amount to deal with. What one expects for are some frank exchanges.
Indeed, even the characters are indicated to move more than talking.
While Kaushal’s Jaggi is more fascinating as a character than Captain, his scenes and science with Nimmo prevail upon you. As individual entertainers, both Pilgaonkar and Dhillon are good in their parts. Indeed, there are scenes where Dhillon even overwhelms Kaushal’s screen presence.
Given the story is set in the city of Amritsar, in Punjab. There are many Punjabi generalizations that you are coercively fed. Take the names of lead entertainers. For example — Sunny, Simi, and Nimmo — so much for being imaginative. This is all that creators could use concocted?
Afterward, numerous characters like the bijis and baujis, cool Punjabi moms (Sheebha Chadha and Jayati Bhatia). Severe dads (Parmeet Sethi and Sameer Soni), however by one way or another. Even their whimsies carry a grin to your face.
Dheeraj Rattan’s story needs profundity.
Even introduction chief, Sneha Taurani, neglects to grasp you with her work. She has attempted to weave the conventional society hit the dance floor with a metropolitan story. Yet she required a far more grounded and crisper content to clutch individuals’ consideration.
Bhangra Paa Le can be summarized as a decent vibe film that makes you dance, sing, grin. Yet there’s nothing unmistakably vital that it has to bring to the table. Punjabis and those with an inborn love for bhangra may very well cherish it for evident reasons.
