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.
Soorma is the brilliant fusion of Struggle, Hockey and Patriotism.
After huge disappoint from Kill Dil and Ok Jaanu, Shaad Ali (undefined) tried something new for him as he usually love to remake his Mentor Mani Ratnam (director) (undefined) 's Tamil Super-hits e.g. Sathiyaa, OK Jaanu (2017 movie) (undefined) . This biopic has intense struggle and love but i feel that Hockey was little less intense as we are expecting more intense Climax.
Diljit (undefined) Dosanjh was exceptionally brilliant in the role of Sandeep Singh. He looks great as lover or fighter. Taapsee Pannu (undefined) looks pretty and good chemistry between her and Diljit. Angad Bedi showcase great bonding between brother. Vijay Raaz was good in touch in the role of Coach. Kulbhushan Kharbanda has small supporting role but it was worthy one.
Shaad Ali tried to give honest touch to the script however it lacks inclusion more about preparation and execution in Hockey match. Rehab portion can be little shorter and add more Chak De type thriller so that Indian audience got what they expect from Bollywood cinema.
**Music and Lyrics:**
Shankar- Ehsaan and Loy delivered another soulful music album after Raazi. Each and every song good for ears especially Diljit's Ishq Di Baajiyaan and Shankar's Soorma Anthem. Gulzar done brilliant job with lyrics once again.
Dialogues were full of punches. When Vijay Raaz say" Hum Bihari hain, Jor se thook dege to chhed ho jayega" . After this dialogue whistle and claps all over the cinema hall.
As this movie open less than expected opening day collection. It was able to mint 3 crores on Friday. Word of mouth is good, not super so we can expect some jump on Saturday and Sunday. It seems that lifetime collection will be around 30-40 crores.
Nowadays Bollywood directors are serving new new dishes and it is audience's sole responsibility to taste all the dishes in the Cinema halls.
