More used to his way around songs, this venture appears to be made only to cater to Gippy Grewal’s followers. This movie is all set to please them with his antics rather than actual roles for them to play. Read more to find out.

Plot: Compelled to take up law as a profession by parents, the protagonist struggles to succeed in his life. The story of facing the challenge of proving his worth to his father and unrequited childhood love. His life changes when he lands up with a case of that of an NRI, usurped of his property.

Analysis: A struggling lawyer gets a case that changes his life? Does somewhere ring a bell? Mandeep Kumar doesn’t quite show an effort to reroute the movie from the familiar road. It constantly reminds you of Jolly LLB. The part which up to some extent should have been appealing gets marred by the utter nonsense designed to please his fans.

Star Performances: No doubt, the star performer is Gippy Grewal as there is hardly any new version to be added to the movie. He gets to romance two girls, who seem to be joyous to have got a chance to play the leading ladies, having brains. This has a more commendable performance than most of his recent films. Credit goes to him in many scenes; where he holds back, trying to bring the plot back into the character and vice-versa.

What’s there?

1) An NRI usurped from his land- there was an attempt to incorporate it into the plot. But somewhere it got bogged down by the ‘stellar’ performance of our favourite actor.

2) If you want to witness an exhibition of Gippy’s skills and antics, this will be a perfect choice. It won’t disappoint you.

3) The narration seems to move in two separate roads. Often in the same track, it seeks to be flippant and pertinent at the same time. Such an intense concoction is unexpected for such a film. But a good try.

What’s not there?

1) The emotions could have been expressed better, which could have added some depth to the film.

2) In some sequences, the plot threatens to slip into a flushed up mode. Here Gippy appears to be moderating over the storyline similar to that of Ranbir in Rockstar or Amitabh Bachchan in Namak Halaal, where they were allowed to do so by the director.

3) The courtroom course were enjoyable and absorbing in Jolly LLB. But here it gets undermined by the stream of animated advocates with ‘judge’ Kanwaljeet Singh trying hard to conceal his yawn.

Verdict: If you are an ardent fan of Gippy Grewal, the film is bound to enthrall you. As for the rest, if you don’t have anything else to do other than watching this movie, I would suggest bett
