Nikka Zaildar franchise has been creating laughter riots since 2016. If the first two installments were a must-watch, the third one is equally funny, witty and amusing. We have been accustomed to Ammy Virk delivering some very natural and composed performances in his films and he hasn't disappointed in Nikka Zaildar 3 either.
On the other hand, Wamiqa Gabbi is a bundle of joy. She holds her place in the movie quite nicely and justifies her presence both in the scenes and on the screen. Having said all that, the soul of the film is Daadi, a character played by Nirmal Rishi. She has, for some years now, taken the sarcastic, slapstick comedy style to a whole another level. She is the life of the whole movie. Period.
Simerjit Singh, the director of the movie, has once again created a story which everyone will enjoy. From a teenager to an 80-year old, everyone will be rolling on the floor and laughing. His vision of the characters has been spot on as well. He has masterfully executed the right angles for the shoot and managed to evoke the right kind of emotions. Jagdeep Sidhu, once again proves that he is the master of his art. Ammy's fellow actors, Sardar Sohi, Nisha Bano, debutant Sonia Kour and others played their parts equally well.
Talking about the storyline of the film, it's a story of a family residing in a village of Punjab. Father of three, Bhaag Singh is a miser and doesn't allow his family to live a life of comfort. He has a very strict way of projecting himself and therefore, no one dares to say anything to him. His grandson, Nikka, however, is exactly opposite how he is. But, Bhaag Singh suddenly dies of shock one day when someone picks his pocket. During his last rites, seeing all the excessive expenditure on so many customs and rituals, Nikka seems unhappy & possessed. Everyone comes to a conclusion that it's not Nikka who seems disturbed but the spirit of Bhaag Singh which came back and possessed him. This exact point in the movie is where a laughter riot starts and it goes on till the end.
Ammy Virk, in just four years since his debut, has moved from a beginner to an established, skilful artist who knows his craft like the back of his hand. He has done a tremendous job with the kind of role he played and the message that ensued from the movie by the end of it. I went to watch the movie to review it like a critic but came out laughing and content with the kind of money and time I spent on it. Its a must watch movie even if you are not an Ammy Virk or Nikka Zaildar franchise fan!!
