Diljit Dosanjh is winning hearts with his recently released film Soorma. The film is a biopic on Hockey legend Sandeep Singh. Sandeep who is star drag-flicker of national Indian Hockey team, faced the biggest tragedy of his life when he was accidentally shot while travelling in a train and was left almost paralyzed.
He couldn’t stand on his two legs and was on a wheelchair before he made his smashing comeback in the Indian national team.
In the year 2009, Sandeep led India to the victory in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup and was also qualified for 2012 Olympics.
The film hit the silver screens on 13th July and got a great response from the viewers.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed about the box office collections of Soorma and said, “#Soorma saw an UPWARD TREND on Day 2… Growth on Sat [vis-à-vis Fri]: 57.81%… Positive word of mouth is reflecting in the BO numbers… Sun biz expected to grow further… Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr. Total: ₹ 8.25 cr. India biz.”
The film raked Rs 3.20 crores on its first day. However, it is slowly progressing on the box-office.
Film critic Shubhra Gupta gave an amazing review to Soorma and wrote, “Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh is spot on. And that is the film’s biggest triumph. Whenever Dosanjh is on screen, we are with him, as he goes through Singh’s arc—the struggle to please a vicious bully of a local coach (Hussain) who gets his jollies from beating up young players, the falling in love with the bright-eyed Harpreet ( Pannu), who is an equal dab hand with the stick and who wants to play for India as much as he does, the shocking incident on a train which leads him to paralysis, and the tough, painful journey back to the field.”
The film also stars Taapsee Pannu who plays Diljit’s ladylove Harpreet.
The film also stars Angad Bedi, Siddharth Shukla and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in pivotal roles.
The movie is directed by Shaad Ali.
