This feature-length advertisement, on the other hand, you’d be best advised to forego. Unless, that is, you’re an Insan already, which means this review doesn’t mean a thing. Go embrace the Insan-ity.

Surreal masala movie about god’s men

It's quite tough to get over the beginning as you see the film’s writer-director-cinematographer-designer and lead actor Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan (SGRRSJI) singing a hip-hop number in a coat with lime-green fur, blingy sunglasses, a super-shiny jacket and what seems like a string of pearls jostling for space. This portly, middle-aged gent, with a benign smile and an even more innocuous voice, is the self-styled spiritual guru heading the Dera Sacha Sauda clan. He plays himself in

This is a movie that is so bad, it’s good. It is horrifying and hilarious at the same time. So what do you get out of it? Three hours of disbelief plastered on your face that you cannot wipe off, no matter how hard you try. Go watch it if you want to get astounded

Do we even need to talk about the other ordinary mortals starring in the film?

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is not the ‘messenger of God, he IS God!

In other words, it’s so bad, it’s good if you’re one to pick the positives and watch a film just for kicks.

Did you grow up thinking that Sunny Deol was a very bad actor? Did you also grow up thinking Sunil Shetty was a very hairy man?

That’s when you’ll feel the hurt of having given away your hard earned cash for something that doesn’t deserve it a bit.

In the garb of a feature film, this is essentially a long, very long, promotional video of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan and the causes that his spiritual organisation Dera Sachha Sauda espouses

​ And if the average small town moviegoer or multiplex elite are going to take someone like Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singhji Insaan seriously, they deserve all the fraud and disappointment that comes their way.

I reckon the censor board wanted to ban the movie for being too awesome. There is literally no better way to spend your valentines day than taking your date to watch the Love Charger.
