Director Saket S Behl’s What the Jatt revolves around Raj who aspires to become an actor but fails to find support in his family. Wary of his father, he keeps his family land as collateral to get a hefty amount to boost his career. To his misfortune, the amount gets stolen while he is on his way to meet a producer. Shattered, he finds solace in liquor shop, where he meets two so called detectives. The detectives talk to one of their client and ask huge amount as compensation. Raj decides to fake as a detective and get that amount.
Harish Verma who plays the role of Raj dominates the movie. Raj’s friend Fateh played by Vipul Roy also shares good screen time. However rest of the cast including leading actress Isha Rikhi, Binnu Dhillon and BN Sharma have somewhat small role to play in the movie. The actress is brought in just before the half time. Binnu Dhillon and BN Sharma are also not used to their calibre by the director.
The music of the movie is average. It’s just random songs packed into the storyline.
Saket Behl’s debut in Punjabi Film Industry has been a disappointing one. He chose a poor storyline to make a film. The screenplay is not only monotonous but dragged at several points. One feels bored while watching the film.
What the Jatt is the first commercial Punjabi film of the year but sadly has no ingredient of success. Punjabi Mania rates this monotonous movie 1.5 out of total 5.
