Amrinder Gill, being the central character, indeed plays a dominant role throughout the flick. He justified his role to the hilt. Next, Karamjit Anmol as Najjar and Chhalla’s friend abroad never fails to impress with flawless comic timing and humourous enacts. Following him, Binnu as Gaama displays remarkable performance as Chhalla’s best friend in the village. Whenever he is on screen, he makes viewers laugh. Then Sydney Eberwein as Bella (Chhalla’s love interest) is incredible too. Her Punjabi speaking skills win hearts. Next, Sargun Mehta as Jitti (Chhalla’s would-be fiance) has a limited but striking role.
Written by Amberdeep Singh, the dialogues are quite engaging, hard-hitting, and entertaining. Some bitter truths of life are very well delivered. Talking about direction, Amrinder Gill makes a decent debut. As they say, there’s always room for improvement, this movie also requires some polish or shine to make it more glittering. Besides that, the editing of the film also lacks a bit of luster, perhaps, the haste of finishing up and releasing the film led to some absurd issues.
Lowkey deserves all the praises for the brilliant music in the movie. From the title track, Baagh, Doongiyan Baatan to the background score are both outstanding and connective. Lyricists Raj Kakra, Bir Singh, and Hardeep Singh Maan ace their department while Amrinder Gill’s voice makes songs truly heart-warming.
Based on true events, the movie showcases the struggle of (Asian) migrants who leave their homes and countries to earn better abroad. Also, it is peppered with a quirky love story of a young Punjabi boy, Chhalla, and a gori mem Bella. If you’re an Amrinder fan, this movie is for you. Book your tickets and enjoy!
