Sardar ka Grandson Review – 2.5 stars 

By: Aditi Shevade 

Sardar ka Grandson is a fresh and new concept indeed but still fails to impress audience. Though it seems like a light hearted comedy, the plot lacks the much-needed depth.

A sweet concept of fulfilling a grandmother’s last wish, Sardar ka Grandson is full of emotions in the first half but falters in the second where the film is beset with a lot of illogical sequences. The so-called comedy shown does not tickle your funny bone at all. With a wafer thin story line, there is nothing that gets the film going. The only positive in the film is veteran actress Neena Gupta, who effortlessly carries the film on her experienced shoulders. Though her facial prosthetics were far from convincing (she plays an octogenarian), she managed to deliver a phenomenal performance. John Abraham and Aditi Rao Hydari’s cameo appearances came as much needed relief in the 2h 20 mins film. Arjun Kapoor could’ve been a lot better as the lead actor while Rakul Preet Singh didn’t have much to portray.

While the plot was somewhat predictable, the emotional connect was on point. However the film still dragged too much courtesy some unwanted scenes bereft of logic and one would struggle to find a reason to recommend the film. Sardar ka Grandson could have been a heart-warming story of memories but falls flat and gives no reason to look forward to.

Directed by Kaashvi Nair, the film is streaming now on Netflix.
