Amar Singh Chamkila: All Great Reviews But No Audience On Netflix?

Ever since the release of Imtiaz Ali’s “Amar Singh Chamkila,” fans have been buzzing with excitement over the film. Parineeti Chopra and Diljit Dosanjh have poured their hearts into portraying the iconic couple, Amar Singh Chamkila and his wife Amarjot Kaur, on the silver screen. Following the film’s release, interest in the life of the late Punjabi singer has surged.

“Chamkila” is experiencing a remarkable phase. Films like “Tamasha” and “Laila Majnu” initially garnered little audience attention upon their release but later attained the status of cult classics as audiences revisited them.

Parineeti Chopra expressed her satisfaction, stating, “The most rewarding thing, though, is the reviews. People are saying they didn’t see Parineeti in the scene, that’s a victory for me. For years, I’ve read reviews of my performances, and most of the time, the feedback hasn’t been great. But now, people are actually liking my performance.”

“Chamkila,” which recently premiered on Netflix, aims to find a substantial viewership on OTT platforms if theatrical success proves elusive. However, achieving this goal seems to be a challenging task for this Diljit Dosanjh-starrer musical journey.

Did It Work For The Audience?

The film narrates the biopic of Amar Singh Chamkila, tragically killed at the tender age of 27 alongside his partner Amarjot Kaur, portrayed by Parineeti Chopra. Since its release, the movie has garnered widespread acclaim. From the performances to the musical narrative, dialogues, and screenplay, every aspect has received appreciation. Despite earning rave reviews, the film has struggled to attract a sizable audience, falling short of expectations.

Despite its brilliance and extensive promotions, “Chamkila” has garnered only mediocre views. Now, the movie’s fate hangs in the balance—it may gradually gain momentum or follow the path of other Imtiaz Ali movies, receiving its due credit in the years to come. If you’ve watched “Chamkila,” we’d love to hear your thoughts.
