Guddiyan Patole: Film Review – A Delightful Women-Oriented Dramedy

Verdict: Sonam Bajwa gives her career-best performance.

Guddiyan Patole raised eyeballs as soon as it was announced as Gurnam Bhullar’s debut movie. He enjoys a huge fan following in Punjab, which makes Guddiyan Patole a keenly awaited film. Moreover, it stars Sonam Bajwa who has five blockbusters in her kitty. Guddiyan Patole is produced by Ammy Virk, another star who has an unmatched fan following. The trailer managed to convey the basic plot of the movie and viewers were expecting a mix of drama and comedy. Does Guddiyan Patole manage to entertain the audience? Let’s analyze.

What’s Guddiyan Patole About:

Kashmir Kaur aka Cash (Sonam Bajwa) and Nicole (Tania) live with their divorced mother in Canada. On their mother’s request, the two girls visit Punjab to meet her family. Once in Punjab, Amreek (Gurnam Bhullar), who owns a cab, picks them up from the airport to take them home. Cash and Nicole experience love and care from the family, but eventually realize that it was all staged for monetary gains. They befriend their nani (played by Nirmal Rishi) and try to reunite her with their mother. On the other hand, Amreek develops feelings for Cash. 

What Works:

Guddiyan Patole works due to a number of reasons. Firstly, it has a very relatable premise where the girls of the family are neither considered as partners in ancestral property and are discarded in case they opt for love marriage. Second, the characterization of a Canada-born-and-brought-up Cash is apt. Lastly, the dialogues keep the film afloat even when the story becomes predictable.

The film starts off with a number of funny sequences. Right from Sonam Bajwa and Tania’s camaraderie to their first meeting with Gurnam Bhullar, you are glued to the screen. The first half sustains on the dialogues with very minimum happening on the story front. The interval scene has a sudden change of events, which leave you moist-eyed.

The second hour is a mixed bag of emotions with the writer trying to fit in a love story, along with a nani-mother reunion, and Tania and Sonam’s characters realizing their responsibilities towards their family. Here, it’s the witty dialogues that keep you entertained, especially those rendered by Sonam and Nirmal Rishi.

Gurnam Bhullar makes a decent debut. His screen time is limited but that’s mainly because this movie is focused on its female characters. Given the right script, he is sure to do wonders in the Cineworld as he has done in music. Sonam Bajwa delivers her career-best performance. She wonderfully portrays a tomboyish character that doesn’t care about what the world thinks of her. She owns her dialogues and does full justice to her role. Tania is sweet and stays true to her character. She is first-rate. Nirmal Rishi gives a stellar performance too.

Vijay Kumar Arora’s direction is perfect. He is a seasoned filmmaker and does full justice to a brilliant story with beautiful screenplay and dialogues from Jagdeep Sidhu. The duo makes sure that film does not get preachy at any point and restrict it to entertainment.

What Could’ve Been Better:

Guddiyan Patole lacks a strong plot and is thrives on its effective screenplay and dialogues. Gurnam Bhullar fans would be a bit disappointed as the movie primarily belongs to the women in the movie.

Why You Should Watch:

Watch Guddiyan Patole for Sonam Bajwa’s brilliant performance. The film has a number of witty dialogues and sequences that bring the house down. Gurnam Bhullar looks cute and provides adequate support to Sonam, Tania, and Nirmal Rishi. The movie is a tribute to women power and authority that strikes a wonderful balance between being entertaining and delivering a strong message.

5 Scenes From Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ That Have Their Own Fandom

When Priyadarshan’s horror-comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ released in 2007, it delighted both critics and the public.
