Synopsis : Vaapsi is about Punjabi migrants who go to other countries for survival.Even though they desperately want to come back home, they are unable to do so.
Movie Review :
Star Performances : Harish Verma & Sameksha are the only who survives in movie. Casting of the movie specially characters artists is senseless. Harish`s mother character has very vital part in movie it could be given to any one who had proved them selves in earlier movies like Punjab 1984, Angrej etc. Dhiriti Saharan is also a wrong choice as harish`s love in this movie.At least director should know whom to cast or whom to not.
Character played by Gulshan Grover is the old age transformation of harish verma is also senseless. Gulshan Grover is a brilliant actor but he is almost wasted in movie.
Screenplay & Direction : How a good script can be spoiled, Vaapsi is the accurate example of it.
Sloppy writing and an abject absence of editorial sharpness are the film’s principal bane.Dull screenplay specially in second half ruins the show.
There`s almost none dialogue which can get applause. Although in movies like Vaapsi dialogues are back bone of movie.
Music : Music of the movie is just average although background is average.
Final Words : Overall, This movie could be the milestone in punjabi cinema but unfortunately director spoils it almost completely.
