Although I agree with Diljit Dosanjh that there are few actors today, there are many artists, as evidenced by his performance in Jogi. I must admit that he is one of the actors of today. There is no doubt that Diljit stands out amidst all of this chaos. His ability to convey the helplessness and vulnerability of his role with elegance and finesse would please any talented actor.
From Udta Punjabi to Phillauri and Soorma to GoodNews, I have adored Diljit in every role he has played.
Has Jogi been released yet?
Watch if you haven’t because you’ll know whether or not Diljit Dosanjh is an actor.
Amid all this chaos, Diljit stands out. Any accomplished actor would be proud of how he portrays the helplessness and vulnerability of his character. As some formidable actors step in to share his burden, Diljit effortlessly carries the film on his shoulders. The trailer also shows a scene in which some people beat up Jogi and his father on a bus.

Despite his superiors’ call for a massacre, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub is again at home as the idealistic cop who must protect his friend Jogi and his family. Kumud Mishra steals the show with his superb performance as the local councilor orchestrates this massacre. He portrays the true human motivation of a villain, making him relatable but still disgustingly evil. In addition, Hiten Tejwani surprises with a genuinely unpredictable role as a cop with a vendetta against Jogi. In this crowd of impressive performances, he stands out. Finally, as a flashback sheds more light on Jogi’s character and history, Amyra Dastur makes a cameo appearance. Seeing more of her and Jogi in the movie would have been nice.
More about Diljit Dosanjh’s Jogi
In his words, Ali Abbas Zafar said, “This film holds a special place in my heart, and who better to play ‘Jogi’ than Diljit! In times of adversity, it is a story of hope, brotherhood, and courage and of how different people are united by difficult times. We are delighted that our story will be screened on Netflix to millions of people, not only in India, but across the globe.”
Mohd, Kumud Mishra, and Diljit Dosanjh star in Jogi. The film was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Ali Abbas Zafar, and stars Zeeshan Ayyub, Hiten Tejwani, and Amyra Dastur. In over 190 countries, the film will premiere exclusively on Netflix on 16th September 2022.
Jogi Movie Review: Star Performance
As Jogi unfolds over three excruciating days, Zafar creates an atmosphere of dread, teasing out and maintaining tension. As if to suggest the inherent claustrophobia of being trapped in your own house, the filmmaker shoots the action in long takes, fluid motions, and close-ups. As a result, it’s comparatively easy to look beyond Zafar’s grand flourishes in Jogi, which helps that they don’t always land.
To those who have seen him deliver a heart-wrenching performance in Punjab 1984, Diljit Dosanjh is the obvious choice to lead this film. His versatility is more evident than ever as he nails subjects like Jatt & Juliet, Good News, and Udta Punjab. His innocent eyes scream how personal this incident is to him, not as an actor but as a person. Once again, Diljit lives up to his name and wins hearts! Jogi does more than make you feel his pain; he takes you through the struggles of an entire community you might not be aware of.
Kumud Mishra perfectly plays the role of a corrupt politician in all his gray elements. It would have been nice if his character had a few surprises up his sleeve for the shock factor. To climb the political ladder, he did what you would expect a corrupt politician to do. Unfortunately, despite being the best at what he does, what he did wasn’t the film’s best part.
Mohd. Paresh Pahuja, Hiten Tejwani, and Zeeshan Ayyub support our lead character, with Zeeshan being the standout. Throughout the book, Zeeshan’s Rewinder acts as Jogi’s aide, and the character development creates a strong emotional connection between them. Unfortunately, neither Jogi nor Hiten’s Lali nor Paresh’s Kaleem is sketched so that the angle of ‘friends of different faiths unite to save people from this tragic incident’ can flourish. As Jogi’s mother, Neelu Kohli conveys the pain through her impeccable acting in a few impactful scenes.
In this hair-raising film, Diljit Dosanjh plays a Sikh trying to save his people from the 1984 riots.
An opening montage shows Diljit’s Jogi enjoying breakfast with his family in 1984. Throughout the scenes, he is shown living a happy, carefree life at home and in college. Then, three gunshots are heard in a long shot, indicating Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination. The man on the phone (Kumud Mishra) asks someone to ‘mark every name’ on a voter list. People on the bus harass Jogi and a friend for being sardaars in the trailer, which shows burning vehicles and rioting. As Zeeshan Ayyub’s cop tells Jogi, the whole city will burn, and he must escape to Punjab with ‘his people.
Following this scene, Jogi reunites with his family in an emotional moment and is shown with his hair cut short. He must now take his entire neighborhood to Mohali in Punjab to escape the rioters. Following shots of him leading people out of Delhi, the trailer ends with Jogi fighting some rioters in a visceral, violent fight.
