Son of Manjeet Singh: Punjabi Mania presents before you the full trailer review of upcoming movie ‘Son of Manjeet Singh’.
There is no hiding to the fact that the year 2018 has been a trendsetter in the Punjabi film industry. Perhaps, no other year would have ever witnessed the variance in concepts as much as this year has witnessed. Another such movie which promises to give a distinct direction to the Punjabi film industry is ‘Son of Manjeet Singh’.
The eagerly awaited trailer of the movie was doing the rounds for sometime now. The trailer eventually got released a few hours ago. Directed by debutant director Vikram Grover, Son of Manjeet Singh will hit the silver screens on October 12.
The movie will see Gurpreet Ghuggi, Karamjit Anmol, BN Sharma, Harby Sangha, Malkeet Rauni, Damanpreet Singh, Deep Mandeep, Japji Khaira and Tania play vital roles in it. Ghuggi will be seen playing the lead role in the movie along with his on-screen son in Damanpreet Singh. It is worth mentioning that Damanpreet has earlier appeared in Niharika Sahni’s ‘Oh My Pyo’ (2014) and the famous TV series ‘Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh’ (2017).
In which is a rare father-son story in the Punjabi film industry, it is likely to see a father forcing a career of his choice on his son. The son, who seems to be good at cricket and running (as shown in the trailer), is an archetype young boy who is more deviated towards sports and is at odds with studies. It is this difference between the father-son duo which is likely to take the story forward.
The concept of the movie might seem relatable to many people because a plethora of people go through the same emotions during a certain age in their respective lives. Due praise to the makers for coming up with such an idea. However, whether they will be able to pull it off or not, only time will tell.
It is evident from the trailer that cricket will play a significant part in the movie. That being said, the quality of game portrayed in the movie seems below par to the extent that it might become its weakness. We are not sure whether Son of Manjeet Singh is an outright sports based movie, but if it is, then people looking forward to the sporting quality in the movie might be let down.
A careless blemish in the trailer is that the name of the script writer is nowhere to be seen in the credits. Apparently, the movie is a remake of the 2010-Marathi movie named ‘Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho’. Accepted that the makers might have taken the legal route in terms of buying the rights of the remake, but there is nothing wrong in giving credit where it is due.
