Inspired from True Events
Filmed from the brave-heart Sajjan Singh’s perspective, the film is based on lives of the Sikh regiment that marched their way to the front lines during World War I. Sajjan Singh was a Maharaja of Ratlam State, ruling from 1893-1947 and a British Indian Army officer.
Diljit Dosanjh’s First Outing as an Indian Soldier
Diljit Dosanjh is known to be the superstar in the Punjabi film industry. Besides his long filmography, he is a noted singer too. If that wasn’t enough to his credit, he has created a niche for himself in the Hindi film industry as well. After bagging a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut in Udta Punjab, he went on to feature in a few more films. With such a long list of achievements accredited to him, it is amazing to see that this is the first time he will don a character of an Indian soldier. Not just an ordinary soldier, but one of the bravest martyrs in the history of India. To top this, Dosanjh has also led his voice to all the songs featured in the film.
The Powerhouse of Talent: Yograj Singh
Barring the protagonist Sajjan Singh, the one man who stood out in the intensely gripping trailer, is the veteran actor Yograj Singh. Unless you have been living under the rock, this talented cricketer-turned-actor needs no introduction. Known for his powerful demeanor in real life as well, playing the role of Subedar for Sajjan Singh’s unit seems to be a tailor made role for him. If our word is not enough, you can witness it from the power-packed trailer itself!
The Hard-hitting Dialogues
If you have watched the trailer, you know exactly why this is on the list! Delivering dialogues is a job any actor has to do. But it takes exceptional talent to deliver such powerful dialogues with ease and intensity at the same time. Right from the protagonist to any actor in the huge ensemble cast, steals the scene with their flawless dialogue delivery. It is interesting to watch that a committed Indian soldier can also wonder “Will the blood we shed be valued at all?”. In another scene, he is seen saying, “We can tear apart men like you with bare hands.” It takes only a glimpse for one to understand that these brave men simply mean business!
All in all, Sajjan Singh Rangroot is a movie which has the potential to stand the test of the time.
