Storyline

This is an inspiring true story of the triumph of the human spirit, about a player who faced a near death experience when he was at his peak but emerged victorious by his sheer determination, hard work and unrelenting passion for the sport. Sandeep Singh, a penalty corner specialist in the Indian Hockey team from Shahbad, Haryana made headlines when he was hit in the spine by an accidental gunshot while travelling on a train to join the national team that was to fly to Germany for the World Cup in 2006. The injury left him paralyzed, with the medical community giving him a slim chance of ever walking again. However, not only did Sandeep recover from it but he also made a comeback and re-established himself as the best drag-flicker, going on to captain the Indian national hockey team in January 2009.

An inspirational movie with a pinch of fun
14 July 2018 | by akshayy-52330See all my reviews

Soorma is based on the real life incidents of Indian Hockey player and ex-captain Sandeep Singh aka Flicker Singh. The movie is fairly enjoyable but it's not as good as was promised by the trailer. It'll entertain you thoroughly during the first half, but, the second half, that includes the most critical part of the story, fails to make the impact that it should have. The script doesn't do justice to the struggle faced by the player in actual life. The actors have done full justification to their characters. Diljit Dosanjh, who is playing the protagonist, has done a great job. He has done full justice to what was demanded by the script. Taapsee Pannu, who is playing the love of the protagonist, did not had much to bring to the table, still, she has done a pretty good job. Angad Bedi, Vijay Raaz and the remaining cast are also fair to their roles.

In short, Soorma is a movie that you can watch and enjoy. It'll surely inspire you but do not expect too much from it.
