Hansal Mehta calls Amar Singh Chamkila Imtiaz Ali’s ‘best work’

Earlier, filmmaker Hansal Mehta penned a heartfelt review of the movie Amar Singh Chamkila on his social media. Talking about his fondness for Imtiaz Ali, he stated, “Imtiaz Ali has been somebody I've known from before any of us made our first films. I loved Jab We Met and Rockstar. I’m not a crazy fan like so many others."

He confessed, "Honest admission - I envied his drop dead good looks and craze among women. I’ve also envied his most forgiving fandom among those who loved his recurring themes and films. More on that some other day.”

Coming to the film, Mehta exclaimed, “His latest (his best) #CHAMKILA is not a film. It is an experience. Imtiaz has outdone himself and raced past his own filmography with a film for the ages. The film is magical, audacious, musical, lyrical, poetic, romantic, raunchy, angry, rebellious, hard and soft - sometimes all of these all at once.”

Hansal Mehta also gave a shout out to Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra, saying, “It is a feat, his (Imtiaz) best work and perhaps the performance of the year from @diljitdosanjh. This one’s a true blue modern Indian musical from @imtiazaliofficial and @arrahman. Also shout out to @parineetichopra - her fine performance sadly won’t be celebrated enough but this one’s truly her finest.”

In the end, he expressed, “Will watch this at least a few more times. This one’s meant to be savored.”

Amar Singh Chamkila was released on Netflix on April 12, 2024. Other stars, including Kartik Aaryan, Triptii Dimri, Sunidhi Chauhan, and more, have also appreciated the film.
