Synopsis : Sargi is a light-hearted romantic comedy charting a competition between two men as they struggle for the attention of the woman of their dreams (Rubina Bajwa). As devoted as his love may be, Babbu (Jassi Gill), has never had the courage to tell his childhood crush how he feels about her. On the other hand, Kaim (Babal Rai), has never had a problem with women, though he’s never truly fallen in love. When Babbu realizes he’s losing his soulmate to the charismatic Kaim, he finds himself in a comedic battle for her heart. As the two of them bicker and fight for her affection, our dream girl finds herself having to decide between a lover without courage and a hero without heart.
Movie Review :
The movie belongs to Jassi Gill. Babbu’s role of a shy lover boy seems to be tailor made for him. He conveys a lot through his expressions. He is the nucleus of the film and takes to his role like a fish to water. Babbal Rai is a confident actor. There’s alot of charm involved in his character and he brings it out brilliantly on screen. One can clearly see the ease enacting the scenes involving him and Jassi due to their off-screen camaraderie. Rubina Bajwa is a doll. She looks like an adolescent on screen and allures the viewer. She needs to work a bit on her expressions. She has the ability and looks to reach heights as a Punjabi film actress. Amongst character artists, Karamjit Anmol (first-rate) and B.N. Sharma (fantastic) leave a mark.
Neeru Bajwa proves that she is as good a director as an actor. She chooses a love story, which is a ‘beaten to death’ genre, but still makes sure that Sargi doesn’t fall into the ‘typical romantic fare’ category. She, alongwith writer Jagdeep Sidhu, reinvent romance withflourish, serving the formula in a contemporary format. DOP Lalit Sahoo captures the beautiful locations of Punjab and Mauritius in his lens and make the movie visually striking.
Music (Jay K, B Praak and Gurmeet Singh) of a romantic film has to be soothing to the ears. And Sargi’s songs do not disappoint. Fer ohi hoya is the best song of the album and its video (Arvinder Khaira) generously brings forth Jassi’s feelings for Rubina. Jhumke is well composed and a treat for Jassi-Babbal fans.
Overall, Sargi is an entertaining romantic film, which the youth brigade would love and those who have already past that age would want to revisit those days.
