Channa Mereya Punjabi Movie Review: Cast and story predictable but songs create the impact
Written by Aiman

Channa Mereya Punjabi Movie the Punjabi version of the Marathi movie ‘Sairat’ which has received great reviews has hit the screens today, and cast include Ninja and Payal Rajput in lead roles along with Yograj Singh, B.N Sharma, Karamjit Anmol and many more. The movie has been directed by Pankaj Rajput. The trailer and songs had generated sufficient buzz for the movie, and the first day is expected to bring in a lot of moolah from an audience that has found love stories good stuff to watch in the past.

The movie is a rollercoaster of emotions, and shows a young couple in love (Kainat played by Payal and Jagat by Ninja). Like the Hindi movies of yore, Kainat is from a rich family who falls for the handsome but middle class boy Jagat. The girl’s brother and father are against the relation, as expected, and the couple have to face a lot of tough movements before the families come to accept terms and lets the couple be. The story is very predictable but the actors play their parts well, and it has enough visual beauty to it to get things going with the Punjabi audience.

The movie has been produced by Gunbir Singh Sidhu, Manmord Sidhu under the banner of Zee Studios and White Hill Studios and the music by Goldboy, Sonu Ramgharia & Jaidev Kumar. The Marathi movie Sairat directed by Nagraj Manjule boxed a stunning 110 crores and it remains to be seen how much Channa Mere Ya is able to bring in. The movie’s budget is said be around 60 lakhs, and the run time is 132 minutes (2.2 hours). The movie also marks the entry of two new singers into the Punjabi movie industry in Ninja and Amrit Maan. The music tracks are  good, and the great reviews on the pre-released music, trailer and poster mean that it will be certainly something to watch out for.
