Movie: Arjun Patiala
Cast:Diljit Dosanjh, Varun Sharma, Kriti Sanon, Ronit Roy, Seema Pahwa, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Pankaj Tripathi
The movie starts with struggling filmmaker narrating the movie script to a politician (Pankaj Tripathi) who is keen on investing his money in the script because it has all the necessary elements of a sure-shot blockbuster – action, drama, romance and Sunny Leone’s item number.
The film starts by showing Arjun Patiala (Diljit Dosanjh) who because of his mind-blowing judo talent wins a big judo competition in his district, and is reward to become the district police officer. Now, Arjun Patiala is a sweet, simple guy who is also very smart. He assumes duty, and from day one, Arjun ensures that he works towards making Ferozpur (where he is placed as the officer) a crime-free district. Onida Singh (Varun Sharma) is a junior police officer and also his secretary, who has been through so many heartbreaks that he now has settled for his Buffalo lady love, Victoria (yep not kidding, mummy kasam!)
In this process, Arjun meets Ritu Randhwa, a crime journalist and falls in love with her. Both Arjun and Onida come up with the idea of making their district crime-free by pitting the top five criminals of Ferozpur against each other. One among them is Sakool aka Mohommed Zeeshaan.
The first half of the film will make you laugh to bits but will make you feel that the second half does get a bit slow-paced but eventually catches up with a new set of twists and turns. Apart from the laughter we also get to see how our political system use the police officers to get the seats.
The psychotic thriller “Judgementall Hai Kya” also have hit the screens today but if you are looking for something light and relaxing for this weekend then Arjun Patiala it is.

For the action, thedrama, the romance, the video game visuals, kriti’s sexyness, Diljit’s smile and Varun’s innocence – I’ll give it 3.0/5.0 stars.
