      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express This could have been a perfectly acceptable film, presumably meant to release around the tenth anniversary of 9/11. In Puneet Issar's hands, it becomes a series of unintentionally hilarious scenes. Rated: 1/5 Mar 29, 2019 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times There are songs and dance numbers, of course, which thankfully inject some energy, but even by Bollywood's standards of plot-interrupting artificiality, they seem out of place. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 5, 2011 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times Song sequences - about weddings, religious devotion and Punjabi martial traditions - are refreshing gulps of air amid the solemnity. Rarely has dancing been so welcome. Rated: 3/5 Dec 2, 2011 Full Review Nikhat Kazmi The Times of India Puneet Issar does make a valiant effort to make a meaningful film about the aftermath of 9/11. Sadly, the effort gets bogged down by the hysterical undertones and the preachy nature of the film. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 28, 2020 Full Review Louis Proyect rec.arts.movies.reviews An amazing feat. A sharp commentary on the injustice done to Sikh people in the aftermath of 9/11 and some of the most breathtaking song-and-dance routines seen outside of a Michael Jackson or Madonna video.

      Audience Member I saw this film and it was REALLY boring. I myself am a Punjabi but felt that the directing, acting and overall plot were executed rather weakly. The concept of the film is great, but it lacks in being objective. It's understandable for there to be some subjectivity but the portrayel of skin-heads who stand around random plots of land with airplanes in them pumping their fists like hooligans really put me off. Also, Americans do NOT have a British accent, and that is something that Bollywood needs to take into account when they portray the west. The main actor in the film was very melodramatic and I felt like he didn't know what to do with his hands and all he did was raise his hand sky ward or have a fist with a pointing finger. Ultimately, I spent most of my time fast forwarding in hopes of a "good part" but never found one. I really hope that director's in India can start directing instead of just story telling because good concepts often don't get their due (ie. this film). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This is was a very good movie. For those who love the Sikh religion will be moved not just by the amazing historical facts shown in the movie but, by the beautiful quotes by the Sikh holy scripture.
