Motor Mitraan Di: Film Review – Time to Expose the Fake Godmen 

Verdict: A relatable concept with a messed up storyline. 
There has been a significant increase in the number of Godmen attracting a large section of people of Punjab. This has resulted in fake babas getting involved in scandals and have attracted controversies. Motor Mitraan Di highlights the story of one such fake Godman whom people follow and call their bapuji and pitaji, but his misdeeds are hidden from the world.
Motor Mitraan Di is a story of three brothers (Gurpreet Ghuggi, Vikram Singh Ranjha and Happy Raikoti) who own a motor garage and a bus. Near their village is a dera of Baba (Yograj Singh) whom a number of people visit for satsang. The three brothers strike a deal with the person who is in charge of the dera, for transporting the passengers headed to see the baba. The dera head kills a girl (Sonia Mann) and carries her dead body in the bus to throw it into the canal, but fails to do so. How the three brothers get to know about the murder and expose the fake baba, forms rest of the story.
There’s no denying the fact that Motor Mitraan Di has a novel theme and has been made with right intentions. But the path the movie takes to reveal the truth of the baba is slapdash. The screenplay is amateurish and there are too many cinematic liberties taken by the director, which after a point, may start irritating the viewers. The writers concentrate more on how to get rid of the dead body and have spent a considerable amount of time showcasing the same, rather than presenting the true deeds of the baba. The final reels take the movie to an all-time high The climax where the three brothers expose the baba has been well enacted and executed
Gurpreet Ghuggi puts in a sincere effort for his part. Although he seems to be wasted for a majority portion of the movie, but the actor shows his true prowess in the end reels when he brings the baba's secrets out in the open. Vikram Singh Ranjha and Happy Raikoti are decent actors but tend to go overboard in a few scenes. Sonia Mann fails to impress. Sardar Sohi and Harsharan Singh bring the house down during their encounters with the dead body. Yograj Singh is dependable and looks every bit a baba. He gets into the skin of the character and gives a noteworthy performance.
Amitoj Mann, as a director succeeds in keeping the viewer engaged for the most part of the film. He is let down by his own writing as he pairs up with Waqas Quereshi to write Motor Mitraan Di. The music (Jaidev Kumar) is plain average with no hit songs to boast of.
On a whole, Motor Mitraan Di is an average piece of work, which could have been a much better movie only if the track involving the baba and his misdeeds was given more importance than all other tracks showcased in the movie.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Watch Motor Mitraan Di for Gurpreet Ghuggi’s hard hitting dialogs against the self-acclaimed messengers of God and Yograj Singh who takes to the role of a baba like a fish takes to water.
