Saab Bahadar, an upcoming Punjabi film starring Ammy Virk in the titular role is all set to release in theatres this Friday on May 26th. Apart from Ammy Virk, the film’s star cast includes Preet Kamal as the leading lady, Jaswinder Bhalla, Rana Ranbir, Seema Kaushal and Hobby Dhaliwal. The film which is touted as a first of its kind mystery thriller in the Punjabi film industry, has been directed by Amrit Raj Chadha and written by Jass Grewal.
Saab Bahadar is being presented by Gunbir Singh Sidhu, Manmord Sidhu (who have earlier given us films like Jatt and Juliet, Sardarji and Punjab 1984) in association with Zee Studios. The plot of the film revolves around a police officer, Kuldeep Singh (referred to as Saab Bahadar) known for his crime solving sensibility who is set in the early 90’s in a remote village in Punjab. He reads a lot of mystery novels which he gets inspired by in performing his duties with great degrees of vigilance.
After a series of crimes in the otherwise peaceful village, Saab Bahadar is onto decoding the mystery behind repeated criminal activities.
Ammy Virk, who is known for his work in romantic comedies is presented in a completely new thrilling avatar. He talks about the film sharing his excitement, “I have worked in both comedy and romantic films. I am excited to be a part of this mystery film of the Punjabi cinema. It is always thrilling to attempt something new and it feels great when your efforts are awarded positively. I will request all my fans to watch ‘Saab Bahadar’ as it will open doors for more experiments with stories in our home industry.”
The producers of the film vouch for it to be a seamless blend of suspense, fear with appropriate amounts of comedy and romance thrown in. Here’s hoping this experiment into a new genre pays off well.
