Moving further from the review, SAJJAN SINGH RANGROOT is no doubt a worth appreciating first attempt in Punjabi Cinema, but it doesn’t really charge you up with a feeling of patriotism as the group is actually not fighting representing their own country. The fact that the Indian soldiers assisted the British army in their war becoming a decisive force certainly makes you proud, but probably a lot more drama was needed to make it a cinematically engaging script, particularly in the war sequences beginning in the film’s second half. Plus its really sad that our writers and directors still find it tough to make a War Movie without going into the individual backdrops of soldiers, their romances and the ‘so unrequired, foolish’ songs (added right in between the bloody war sequences). 

Besides, a WAR MOVIE cannot and should not remain focused on only one HERO alone, as a war is never fought by any individual. A war film has to give respectable mileage to the team, which more or less remains missing in the film solely focusing on only Diljit Dosanjh.
However, would like to shower my praises for not taking up a ‘too loud, over the top’ path, keeping it subtle and not playing the obvious ‘RELIGION’ card making a typical religious film as many were expecting it to be. The ‘religion-angle’ in the first half is rightly incorporated as per the requirement and it was a relief to see it not being deliberately repeated in the latter part of the film.
In all, this is a brave and an appreciable start setting a benchmark and the next upcoming Punjabi war movies will have to deliver something better in order to get any similar or more encouraging response.
Rating : 3 + 0.5 / 5 (with the additional 0.5 for the makers taking a big appreciable risk)
