Sardar’s Grandson

Sardar's Grandson
Film actor Rishi Kapoor wanted to visit his ancestral mansion, which is now in Pakistan, but it never got completed. This desire was in the hearts of many people, whose childhood / youth has been spent in the streets and cities that came to Pakistan in the post-independence partition and had to come to India by force.
Sardar (Neena Gupta) of the film ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’ has come of age. The disease has become such that the doctors have said that he does not have much time. Sardar, who lives in Amritsar, tells his grandson Amrik Singh (Arjun Kapoor), who is doing business in the US, that he wished to go to his house in Lahore that his husband Gursher Singh (John Abraham) built before he died. Was. Gursher Singh was killed in the riots immediately after the partition and Sardar fled from there to Amritsar with his son. Now his son (Kanwaljeet Singh) has a big cycle business.
Amrik loves his grandmother a lot. When he feels that it is difficult to take grandmother to Pakistan, he decides to go there and bring the house to India. In today’s era it is not difficult to shift houses, trees from one place to another. This task is not easy for Amrik because he has to shift home from one country to another. Can he fulfill his grandmother’s last wish? How will it work? This is the gist of the story.
story written by Anuja Chauhan is hard to believe, but there is no denying that it is not possible. Yes, there are many difficulties in doing this and these difficulties are not visible in the film. This makes the story irrational at times. Logic seems to leave. Although the story has been dressed up with a sense of humor, but at times the film gets too filmy leaving the track. For example, when American reaches Pakistan and sees that his ancestral mansion is being demolished, the way he creates ruckus there is ridiculous. Although an attempt has been made to do comedy, but this sequence is not so entertaining that the audience forgets everything.
There is something new in the story, but it is a one-liner. To elaborate, a few more episodes are included, such as the breakup of Amrik and Radha (Rakul Preet Singh), Amrik’s mess with his stepbrothers over his grandmother’s bicycle company, the Lahore mayor’s scolding of Amrik’s grandmother. Vala affair, but they do not help in moving the story, nor are it entertaining. Looks like half-baked, half-baked. Especially Amrik-Radha’s breakup portions are not easy to see. It is only when Amrik comes to Amritsar that the film gets a little life. The involvement of the Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan in the house shifting case and the matter becoming international has been dealt with in a hurry.
Kashvi Nair directed the film. He has introduced the drama by dipping it into the syrup of comedy and emotional rather than arguments. He may have expected the audience to flow into the stream of emotion and not get entangled in the debate of how to bring the house from Pakistan to India, but could not shed such a flow of emotion. The film is good in the last 30 minutes when emotions emerge, but this is not seen in the entire film. Although some scenes in between look good, but their number is small.
Arjun Kapoor takes time to drown in his character. His performance in the opening scenes of the film is poor, but after this he comes in color and his performance in this film is a bit bland. They should take care of the weight. His obesity stings the eyes during the fitness phase. Rakul Preet Singh did not have much to do, her role has not been written properly nor she was able to impress with the acting.
The acting of Sardar turned Neena Gupta is effective. He has breathed life in many scenes. Their makeup is not well done. Kumud Mishra, Kanwaljeet, Soni Razdan have done justice to their characters. John Abraham and Aditi Rao are Hydari’s cameos and Aditi is the only one to remember. The songs only extend the length of the film. The film needed tight editing and could have been shortened by at least thirty minutes.
The story of Sardar’s Grandson is interesting, but that is not the case in the presentation.
