The action sequences of Punjabi film Ek Sandhu Hunda si have been designed and choreographed by Sham Kaushal. And why do you think we mentioned the action director’s name before anything else! This is because Ek Sandhu Hunda Si is a compilation of action and wherever, director Rakesh Mehta found space he threw in the story.
Although Ek Sandhu Hunda Si is largely a film based on student politics, it only touches this topic on a very superficial level. The rest is of course only action. In the recent past, other Punjabi films like Sikander and even Zora 10 Numbariya have touched this topic in a better way. The story of the film written by Jass Grewal is a dull and drab tale of romance in the backdrop of elections.
The first 15 minutes of the film are dedicated to building Sandhu’s image, which gets too much to handle. Although Sandhu makes a dashing entry, this image is loosened in a funny way.
Ek Sandhu Hunda Si boasts about a battery of stars with singer actor Gippy Grewal at the helm of affairs. The sameness in his acting doesn’t lend any weight to Sandhu’s character. The film also stars Dheeraj Kumar and Roshan prince who have justified their roles. Actor Pawan Malhotra who plays a negative role needs to bring something new to his negative shade. However, it is refreshing to see Vikramjit Virk and Hobby Dhaliwal bringing something to the table. The film marks the debut of Bollywood actress Neha Sharma. It is nice to see a pretty face on screen but when it comes to the on screen romance between Gippy and Neha, well we’d rather see the action rather!
