Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With a script credited to five writers including its star Vinay Virmani, it is a movie that keeps skating madly off in different directions and desperately needs more coaching than director Robert Lieberman provides."
‑ Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
"Much better than the other reviews reflect. A feel-good entertainment that sheds light on the misunderstood but heroic Sikh peoples. Now available on Netflix streaming, see for yourself and don't rely on the critics."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"[A] pleasant timewaster, which has a good cast but a not-so-good script."

‑ Kevin Williamson, Jam! Movies
"There are no surprises here, with father-son crisis and reconciliation, scaled-down quasi-Bollywood production numbers and the climactic big game all arriving on cue."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
