When was the last time we had a really strong brother-sister film? Can’t recall too many. In 1959 there was the moving Choti Bahen . Remember ‘Baby’ Nanda singing Bhaiyya mere raakheeke bandhan ko nibhana to Balaraj Sahni? Thereafter there were sporadic films like Josh (Shah Rukh-Aishwarya as, don’t laugh, twins), Mere Bhaiyya(the eternal sister Nazima weeping and singing for brother Vijay Arora) and Pyari Behna where Mithun Chakraborty and Tanvi Azmi played siblings .And and who can forget [tooltip id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a”][tooltip id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ keyword_color=”#000000″ background_color=”#ffffff”][tooltip id=”4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf”]Salman Khan[/tooltip][/tooltip][/tooltip] and Ashwini Bhave as siblings in Bandhan?
Aishwarya ages from 20 to 60 in Sarbjit. This is the first time since Guru when she gets play such a wide spectrum of personality definitions in one film. She has literally poured her life and blood into the character.Hard work can never go wrong.
Director Omang Kumar has already shown his skill at the bio-pic. Mary Kom was a furiously nationalistic look at life that was destined for greatness. In its own way Sarbjit follows the same trail
After Neerja this is another true-life story celebrating the spirit of humanism. Like Neerja Sarbjitaddresses the theme of bonding over barbed fences
Like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sarbjit says that people in both India and Pakistan are equally
compassionate .Sometimes one country locks up an individual and loses the key.By no means does that make Sarbjit a ‘low key’ affair.
The last time she was seen on screen(in Jazbaa) Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was running around trying to get her kidnapped daughter back .
The last time she played a biographical character it was the real-life victim of domestic violenceKiranjit Ahulawlia in the late Jagmohan Mundra’s Provoked. Don’t the visuals of kinship betweenAishwarya and Sarbjit’s sister remind you of Aishwaya and Kiranjit?[tooltip type=”box” html=”Input Your Content Here” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a” /][tooltip type=”box” html=”Salman Khan Bollywood Actor” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ /]
