Technically speaking, it deserves better

In terms of stories, Punjabi cinema is in a pretty comfortable space. Script and screenplay writers along with some creatively charged directors are giving Punjabi cinema stories worth a watch. Following suit is the animation film Bhai Taru Singh. Directed by Sukhwinder Singh Vismaad, the film highlights the spiritual and divine life of Bhai Taru Singh, a saint who served humanity and sacrificed his life to keep the honour of Sikh religion. 

Bhai Taru Singh is a good initiative to not only make people know more about the saint and at the same time give Punjabi cinema a fresh subject. In animation films, technicality plays a major film, and Punjabi cinema has already set the benchmark with the animated film Chaar Sahibzaade. Though Bhai Taru Singh can be seen for informative viewing, but it lacks technical refinement. Also at many places you'd find the voice of voice-over artistes and the lip movement of the characters do not match. The animated character of Zakariya Khan is a venomous one; however, the voice of BN Sharma does not do justice to the character.  The story, however, is written in an informative manner without any unnecessary stretching.  

The film has some soulful Gurbani kirtan tracks that go with the film's sensibility, if only it was supported by equally good animation, this movie would have set high-standards in animation.
