    Verdict - Worth a watch

    SoormaRelease date : July 13, 2018

    This is the story of a National level hockey player ( Diljit Dosanjh) who accidentally gets seriously injured by the rifle shot of a careless policeman while travelling in a train. He is paralysed below the waist and is a broken man since his hockey career is over. His grief is shared by his father (Satish Kaushik), elder brother ( Angad Bedi), mother and grandparents who live together in a small town in Punjab. Diljit also has to resign from the job in the Railways which he had got based on his position as a National level hockey player. In this bleak scenario comes a glimmer of hope in the shape of a senior hockey federation officer ( Kulbhushan Kharabanda) who sends him for rehabilitation to Holland. Diljit makes a miraculous recovery and very soon he is active on the hockey ground as before. In a crucial hockey match he then brings laurels for the country. There is a parallel track of Diljit's romance with Tapsee Pannu which does not add to the film in any way and could have been avoided.
    The problem with this film is that it does not have A listers in the cast and does not boast of a top director or music director or technicians. In spite of this apparent drawback it remains a fairly well made film with good intentions and a visible sincerity of all. There are many places where it touches a chord and people of Punjab will easily relate to the film.
