I AM SINGH is an honest attempt to highlight the plight of Muslims and Sikhs in America post 9/11. But honestly, this topic is now done to death and unless there is something different or if it is dished out differently, it will be one more of those films that try too hard.

Puneet Issar has all the right intentions but he goes over the top in proclaiming the glory of the turban, the ideologies of a sardar and the strength of his character. Preaching is good, but when the same thing is said over and over again, it loses its sting and becomes a source of irritant. Also, he goes on and on about how not all Muslims are terrorists.

CHECK OUT: Puneet Issar- Salman loved I AM SINGH

This film is come 5 years too late. By now everyone knows what Sikhs and Muslims went through after the attack on the Twin Towers and how the world was outraged at this.

An Indian Sikh family in the US is traumatized. A son is killed while the father is grievously injured and the other son is falsely implicated in the murder of his brother. The younger brother from India flies down to the US to set things right. His meeting with the officials draws a blank and he finds support with a few locals and a police officer (Puneet Issar) who has been suspended from duty for refusing to remove his pagdi. This same officer has served the LAPD for 20 years.

From here on the film ambles onto a predictable path till it nears its inevitable conclusion. Even after the conclusion, Puneet still finds it necessary to preach as the mother of the slain Sikh appeals to all to hate war and love peace. Otherwise, she says, 'the whole world will be ground zero'.

Technically, the movie is sound but it's a waste of resources to pump in money on a subject that has already been beaten to pulp.

Rating - 1.5/5
