Cast[edit]

Development[edit]

According to Diljit Dosanjh, the idea to make a Punjabi superhero film came to him after the release of Jatt and Juliet in the year 2012 when he saw an image of himself superimposed on the body of Superman by someone on the internet.[3] Due to the expensive budget of the film, it took Diljit and Anurag Singh, the director of the film, nearly two years to find a Producer for the movie. It was only after Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures came on board as a Producer was this project given a green light.[4] Super Singh marks the fifth collaboration of actor Diljit Dosanjh and director Anurag Singh after Jatt & Juliet, Jatt & Juliet 2, Punjab 1984 and Disco Singh, and is the maiden Punjabi production of Ekta Kapoor. The first look of the film was unveiled by Balaji Motion Pictures on 17 January 2017.[5]

Critical reception[edit]

Divya Pal of CNN-News18 praised the performance of Diljit Singh, giving it a rating of 2.5 stars out of 5 and saying, "Director Singh deserves credit for thinking different, aiming high to surprise viewers, but this time out, it doesn't quite come together. The reason? There is no freshness in the script. All in all, predictable plot and safe script, dilutes the impact of the film."[9] Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News gave the film a rating of 2 stars out of 5, and said, "While it's sweet at first, it gets cloyingly virtuous toward the second half. A predictable story line and stereotypical villains make it a tedious watch."[10] The Hindustan Times gave the film a rating of 2 stars out of 5 saying, "Diljit comes across as somewhat anxious in his efforts to woo audiences in his new avatar. The performance lacks the effortlessness of Udta Punjab. The special effects are cringe-worthy, and when Diljit flies, he looks like Ashok Kumar marching across the army base in a comatose condition in Manoj Kumar's Clerk."[11] Jyoti Sharma Bawa of The Indian Express praised the humour of the film saying, "Diljit Dosanjh film is a goofball comedy and a superhero caper all rolled into one. What it lacks in script and CGI, it more than makes up in jokes and Diljit's easy charm." and gave the film a rating of 3 stars out of 5.[12]
