‘Thanda khana, tatta nhona, te kudiyan di gallan ch na aunaa, aehi ten cheejan bachai firdiyan ne jatt Ambarsariye nu’ (Cold food, hot water bath and not being fooled by girls, these are the three things, which have been saving Jatt Ambarsariya), declared Diljit Dosanjh aka Jatt Ambarsariya (as he likes to call himself in the film) in one of the scenes of the film, I just wish he would have said this earlier in the movie.
Diljit plays an insurance agent, who is also a RAW agent (Indian Secret Service), Diljit in this movie as well is at his best with his clever wit, sarcasm and mockery of almost every other character in the film. And when you have a comic timing as amazing as Dosanjh’s, the ‘innocent looking funny Punjabi boy’ gig never fails! Although his last two funny attempts were not as good as Jatt and Juliet and it’s sequel but with Ambarsariya he’s surely back with a bang.
The story revolves around the primary character Ambarsariya (Dosanjh), who aces at everything that he does, where it’s his public profile of an Insurance agent or as a RAW officer. He’s put on a mission to protect the honest Home Minister of Punjab from drug mafia’s attempt to murder him. He chases multiple suspects named Manpreet played by Ghuggi, Rana and Lauren. What made the film even better is the fact that it has talented actors like Gul Panag, Ghuggi and Rana who make their strong presence felt, despite the limited screen time they have. The dialogues are amazingly funny and only Diljit Dosanjh could have delivered them so well. One of the most funny characters and notable roles were of Jaanu – this kid sets the screen on fire!
Mandeep Kumar has done a very good job with directing, by keeping the interest and entertainment high with the murder plot and Diljit’s love life and the narration style is also very fresh. The aerial shots of Amritsar are a delight that add to the visual delight which is usually missing from the Punjabi movies.
The only thing I didn’t like in the movie was Lauren Gottlieb’s punjabi. It sounded like the poor girl was in some real pain to deliver those dialogues… and she could have had atlas one solo dance in the movie… ok ok, i know i am being greedy now. But, in conclusion, Ambarsariya is an all-round entertainer with with some very good performances and a good story. We highly recommend you to go and watch it if you haven’t watched it yet.
