Sarbjit is a powerful, sensitive, compelling drama that under the skillful hands of director Omung Kumar tugs at your heartstrings and haunts you long after the movie is over.
The film recreates the real life nightmare of a family’s struggles to get Sarbjit Singh released from the Pakistani prison after he accidently strayed into Pakistan in a drunken stupor and is convicted of terrorism and spying. Sarbjit not only recounts the heart-wrenching tale of this Indian farmer whose 23-year-old ordeal is beyond imagination but also brings to the fore this beautiful sister-brother bond between Dalbir Kaur (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) and Sarbjit (Randeep Hooda).
Randeep’s transformation from a happy-go-lucky Punjabi munda to a tortured prisoner does not only astonish but also gives you goosebumps. His hard work to make the character his own is clearly visible.
