Sarbjit is at times genuinely moving and features a family reunion sequence that will reduce you to tears.

It makes you cherish your loved ones - and appreciate others too.

March 28, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The loud and insistent melodrama takes away from the pathos of the central character's story.

October 31, 2017 | Full Review…

... like an old school, middle-of-the-road movie, Sarbjit wants to spell it out for the viewer. In doing so, it makes a meal out of its subject.

October 30, 2017 | Full Review…

Sarbjit feels too contrived and never becomes powerfully evocative.

August 31, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5

From this solid material, director Omung Kumar fashions a film that is structurally clumsy and overtly high-pitched but also strongly enacted and genuinely moving.
