#Soorma #MovieReview Diljit is one gifted actor and he carries the film.on his responsible shoulders. @taapsee is lovely and delivers a Taut performance. It's a well deserved tribute to a hockey legend and the producers need to be lauded for backing this. #Soorma #MovieReview Shaad Ali scales new heights as a director and delivers one of the best sport films of all times. It is also one of the best movies of 2018. I won't talk much about script details. But it's a Movie Rating - 4/5 Go and watch it guys, don't miss this one.

Review #Soorma Rating *** @diljitdosanjh sincere & honest act that wins your heart . He conveniently portrays the role of a hockey player with ease . After Udtaa Punjab here is yet another fine performance from the versatile actor. @Imangadbedi delivers career best performance.

#Soorma has been entertaining so far. Acting with real emotion isn't easy, but @diljitdosanjh achieves it with his performance.

Writer Director Shaad Ali's #Soorma is a wonderful blend of realism and romance that's hugely inspiring and leaves you with a feeling that this is the story of struggle and extraordinary grit that one must try and learn from. Brilliant performances from Diljit n Angad stay with u The manner in which Shaad Ali manages to make you smell the sondhi mitti ki mehek of Punjab is commendable.Shankar Ehsaan Loy's music plays a big part in that.Ishq di Baajiyan sung by Diljit is superb.#Soorma anthem is brilliant as well.Dialogues are excellent n stay with you!! The pacing of the film is slightly on the slower side.There are times both in the first as well as the second half when you feel that certain scenes are not really gripping you as an audience but then everything blends very nicely in entirety. Diljit Dosanjh is a gifted artiste.His sincerity, charm and spontaneity left me spellbound.I saw his Punjabi film #SajjanSinghRangroot a few days back n now #Soorma ...He's one of my favourite actors now. As Sandeep Singh he convinces you as a world class player n it's not easy The portions where Diljit romances Taapsee or emerges a hero as a drag flick hockey player are superb.The humour that he brings to the table is endearing but it's the portions when he battles with his doubts n failures that simply stun you with the stark realism ! .#Soorma is an honest film that will surely inspire a lot of people to at least try and attempt extraordinary things in life.Sandeep Singh's story of courage n family support is a must watch experience.With the right dose of romance n music it's a complete package.Don't miss it!

#Soorma The first half is so nicely directed that one expects Soorma to be one of the best films of the year. But shockingly, the film goes downhill in the second half, when it should have gone on a high #Soorma There were several scenes that would have made a huge impact if it were given a massy and dramatic touch, the way it was done in the 1st hour. But for some strange reason, Shaad Ali executed it in a very bland manner, diluting the impact heavily #Soorma @diljitdosanjh is very lovable and puts his best foot forward. Whether he's romancing or awing everyone with dragflick or when he's down and lost hope, Diljit essays all these moods very well #Soorma @taapsee is brilliant, in the first half. @Imangadbedi has an important part and enhances impact in few scenes. @ActorVijayRaaz is the surprise element. He's sure to bring the house down in single screens with his one liners!

#SoormaShaad Ali's #Soorma is not only one of the best film of 2018 but also, one of the best sports film made in Bollywood. It has everything... it'll make you laugh, cry, dance... it will inspire you. @diljitdosanjh you are 'soorma' of acting. @taapsee Kamaal kar diya aapne

REVIEW: #Soorma, a dramatized version of ex-Indian field hockey captain Sandeep Singh's life directed by Shaad Ali and starring Diljit Dosanjh drags home the same age-old clichés, and flicks our sensibilities by the wayside.
