Ajj De Ranjhe Review

Ajj De Ranjhe - Review


Manmohan Singh, Man G as we call him fondly is a name synonym with Punjabi Cinemas as lot of credit goes to him for raising bar of Punjabi Cinema. "Ajj De  Ranjhe" is next in lot of Man G's gift to Punjabi Cinema.

"Ajj De Ranjhe" follows the journey of an unemployed youngster Ambar (Aman Dhaliwal) and a rookie cop Manjeet (Gurpreet Ghuggi). While Ambar hopes to make it  as a TV journalist like his idol & romantic interest Kranti (Gurleen Chopra), Ghuggi is a dedicated cop, committed to clean up the messy state of affairs of  his police station and bring a known local criminal Soocha Singh (Deep Dhillon) and his son to justice.


Ajj De Ranjhe - Review


On their quest both Manjeet & Ambar encounter hilarious situations involving their romantic interests, family members, the people of the village & even  gangsters. They both keep crossing paths at various junctures as the story progresses and eventually become a formidable team ready to take on the system.  Will this unlikely duo succeed in achieving their individual goals using unconventional tactics forms the rest of the story.


We classify "Ajj De Ranjhe" under meaning full cinema wherein apart from commercial aspects of movie social aspects are also taken care off. Man G's last  movie "Ik Kudi Punjab Di" was also in same league. "Ajj De Ranjhe" has different story from what Punjabi Cinema offers now a days, it talks about an important  element of our social system "Policing", Its much needed Image makeover, Youth issues, NRIs, drugs and last but not the least our national game Hockey.



Ajj De Ranjhe - Review


Gupreet Ghuggi has done excellent job in handling character of Punjab Police SHO and also of sportsperson, this is second movie in recent times where his  role has overtaken even leads role. (First being Yaar Pardesi). He is very well supported by Darshan Aulakh & munshi Rana Ranbir. Kimmi has been in Man G's  most of movies & plays role of U.K NRI girl which doesn't suited her well, she is much more talented & nourished actor. The lead player is new face in town  i.e. Aman Dhaliwal, although he has done supporting roles in "Ik Kudi Punjab Di", Virsa and bollywood movie Jodha Akbar but debuts as a lead with this movie  playing a mediocre role. He is talented actor but has to prove himself for lead. After playing college girl in last released Sirphire Gurleen Chopra comes as  a press reporter in "Ajj De ranjhe" Lot has been said and criticized of her role & performance but given a specific role of extrovert, outspoken female reporter she did pretty well. Although didn't had much scenes but one person who was able to leave mark in audiences mind with his little pestering role is  Rana Jung Bahadur. An Integral part of Man G's team is Deep Dhillon who has given brilliant performances in most of Man G's earlier movies and comes up again  with stellar Performance in negative role, be it dialogue delivery, carrying himself in specially crafted clothes or acting as a whole he was perfect but  his appearance and chemistry with his son didn't appeal much.


The biggest let down of "Ajj De Ranjhe" was its music. No doubt music is essential part of punjabi movie and much of movie's success rides on its music. But  this time with Ajj De Ranjhe void is created and the songs even didn't fit well in some places. At times movie slows down as well much due to its  predictable story and outcome which character of Deep Dhillon tries to cover up. Cinematography is also done by Man G himself whilst not much locales are  explored and captured but given the fact of story and theme it’s reasonably well. Direction is smart as a whip with all characters well handled & fair execution.

Ajj De Ranjhe - Review

All in all "Ajj De Ranjhe" is family oriented movie from bandwagon of Man G with different experimental story and theme. It has drama, comedy, action and  learning. Although doesn't offer something really exceptional but must watch for Punjabi's and Punjabi Cinema lovers for obvious reasons.
