The story of love and life, Qismat makes a viewer wonder about the sad truth of real-life and the importance of true love. It is a Story that makes you pray to save Baani’s life so that the lead protagonists can lead a happily ever after. But that is not to be.
Apart from the story, it is not a doubt that the film’s hero is its lilting music. Inspired from a Punjabi Hit Song ” Qismat Badaldi Dekhi” originally rendered by Ammy Virk himself, the film also takes the premise further to justifies the soulful and meaningful narrative.
The twists and turns that await the lead protagonists as the film unfolds, do seem stretched towards the end. But the story’s meaningful message makes up for the dullness.
Overall a 7.5/10 Rating for this Punjabi Film, which has again attempted to bring serious cinema to Punjabi Audiences.
