So, what happens when a jatt falls in love with a migrant girl from Uttar Pradesh? Rajeesh Dhingra's film 'Tara - Mira' answers the question in a funny but predictable way.
Tara (Ranjit Bawa) falls for her college mate Mira (Nazia Hussain) thinking she is a Punjabi. But to his surprise, she is not and his love life is left upside - down when he finally faces the reality and tries to convince his father, (Yograj Singh) who is not at all fond of the people from the caste that Mira belongs to.
This leaves Tara - Mira with only one choice, to prepare Mira's family to act like proper Punjabis and somehow get marriage approval from Tara’s father. Which begins a series of comic errors and twists.
Yograj's character behaves like Hitler in the matters concerned with Uttar Pradesh and Bihar migrants which highlights the general mindset of Punjabis towards them. Due to this prejudicial mindset, Mira’s father also is not in favor of their marriage.
Now, will Tara and Mira get married or not, the film's climax will tell you but it is weak and not up to the mark. The screenplay of Rajeev Dhingra's film, which was good till now, derails from the track and becomes dull and monotonous here.
On the acting front, Ranjit Bawa and Nazia Hussain are seen sharing the screen for the first time but their chemistry lacks the spicy element, and Nazia Hussain's tone and language as a migrant from Uttar Pradesh, does not seem to be much convincing. Still, she delivers a decent performance in her debut Punjabi film.
Guru Randhawa has turned producer for Tara - Mira dons but that doesn't help the music department at all and it is just average.
Sudesh Lehri, Rajiv Thakur, Anita Devgan, Shawinder Mahal, and Ashok Pathak keep the film alive in their supporting roles which is a plus point for the film.
All in all, Tara Mira had more scope but the director couldn't use it up to its full potential. The film can be watched if you are a jabra fan of Punjabi cinema or Ranjit Bawa.
