MSG : Movie Review

Cast: Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, Flora Saini, Gaurav Gera

Director: Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan;

The Messenger is a movie which is loaded with superstition and gossip. It aims to promote the Dera Sacha Saudha cult in a brazen manner. A preacher tries to impress his followers and cine goers with stunts as seen in any commercial movie. The MSG is a movie which advertises the Dera and its believers. I would rate it as a religio-commercial picture with a motive to further its vote bank. Dera Sacha Sauda recently supported the BJP in Delhi elections. During Lok Sabha polls too the Dera had supported the BJP claiming to have 5 crore followers.

The film starts off with a 'sparkling' introductory song of Guruji aka Pitaji (Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan) and old footage of Indian political leaders. Guruji is an all rounder who, besides being a 'Pitaji' to everyone, is also an ace footballer, miracle worker, patriot, rapper and above all... a 'farishta'. He has many firsts to his credits. Be it the organising 'theme nights' like 'Ruhaani Jaam' (renouncement of liquor), 'Ru-Ba-Ru' nights or even the introduction of a game called 'Gurstick' (a refined form of gilli daanda), Guruji spearheads everything with utmost ease and a never fading smile.

Because of his 'increasing-by-the second' popularity, his detractor Khuraana hires a hitman Mike (Daniel Kaleb) in order to eliminate him, at the behest of 'Don'. Additionally, the 'Don' also sends his suicide bomber to be a part of his Guruji's 'beti' gang, which includes Kasam (Jayshree Soni), Alice (Olexandra Semen), a foreign media student wanting to make a documentary on Guruji and Muskaan (Flora Saini). On one fateful day, an inconsolable Kasam, on the eve of her wedding, reveals a stark reality about Guruji to Alice and Muskaan, which stuns and shocks them both. Around the same time, Guruji's life also gets endangered under mysterious circumstances. Simultaneously, around the same time, Guruji's girl gang discovers the real suicide bomber.

Who is the suicide bomber in Guruji's beti gang, what is the actual motive to kill Guruji, what is the stunning truth that Kasam reveals to others about Guruji which stuns the rest and what ultimately happens of Guruji... is what forms the rest of the film. Guruji is on the target of international drug mafia because he is preaching no to consume drugs. As the demand of drugs slows down the mafia conspires and sends a paid killer from Australia.

As far as the film is concerned, there is just one man who helms the show, right from the word go.We are indeed talking about the multi faceted and the all rounder man himself Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan. As far as his direction and the story writing is concerned, the irony of the situation is that, even though he seems to clearly know as to what he wants to convey through the film, his sense of direction is not in the same alignment with the story.

As a result of poor and amateurish direction, the film tends to suffer big time, and starts looking and behaving as a propaganda documentary of Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan. If MSG: THE MESSENGER is anything to go by, then, (with his noble intentions notwithstanding), Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan has miles to go in the department of direction and storytelling. To conclude the movie is a must go for the followers/believers of the Dera while for an independant person it is aviodable.
