Soorma doesn't rouse as much as it should. It doesn't stop to feel its own heart beat. It tick-marks all the boxes and explores none. The goalposts are broadened - it drags home the same age-old clichés.
It's like the writer/director couldn't decide how he really felt about this man's life, hence, we the audience don't know how to feel either...but the performances end up being the saving grace, but, such potential, such waste.
Sandeep Singh's journey sure merits a biopic.
Watch the film for the truly inspirational story, which can be said to be one of the biggest comebacks in Indian sports history.
What holds this film together is the performance by Diljit Dosanjh...the glint in his eye changes from impish to determined, and it is this that elevates Soorma from what would otherwise have been a run-of-the-mill sports film.
The mainstay of Soorma is, of course, Dosanjh in the titular role. He traverses the span of his character with sheer ease-a charmer as the shy, innocent, bumbling lover and mesmeric as the sportsman.
Soorma ensures that this triumphal journey of the human spirit is full of surprises. The checklist remains in place, but this saga of heartbreak and heroism also has undeniable heart.
Soorma is designed as a story of good yet tough guys: good players, good Samaritans and good administrators. There isn't much of a conflict. We always know where it is heading.
There is good dosage of brotherly love, some hopeless acting from seemingly stern coaches and administration officials but compensated with good music and songs.
