The Punjabi Film Industry has witnessed the release of a new film. Titled Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha, the film stars Pukhraj Bhalla and Hashneen Chauhan in the leading roles, and some more amazing actors like Jaswinder Bhalla, Anita Devgan, Honey Mattu, Sukhwinder Chahal and Seema Kaushal in supporting in pivotal roles. In this article, you will read the detailed Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha movie review which will help you to make up your mind before booking the tickets. 

The story of the film is written by Jagdev Sekhon, while its screenplay is written by Aman Sidhu and is directed by Satinder Singh Dev. The fans were waiting for this film for its different concept and to witness the on-screen father-son chemistry of Jaswinder Bhalla and his real-life son Pukhraj Bhalla. 

Story. So, was the film a high-class entertainer or failed to impress the audience? You’ll get to know everything in Kiddaan’s Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha movie review. 


As the trailer of the film has revealed, Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha is a romantic-comedy movie. A woman who is irritated with the short height of her husband has made up her mind that she will find a dashing and tall man for her daughter (Hashneen). But eventually the young girl falls in love with a short heighted guy (Pukhraj Bhalla) and how their love story struggles to get success is all what the film is about.

But if you think, this is exactly what the story of the film is going to be, then you might be wrong. There is an all-new perspective in the film which is not revealed in the film’s trailer. The struggle is not only the short height of Pukhraj Bhalla, but there is a villain in the film too. We aren’t revealing much about it because we don’t wish to ruin your cinema experience. 

Characters & Acting

Heading towards the most exciting part; the characters of the film. Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha is another film in which Jaswinder Bhalla and Pukhraj Bhalla will be sharing screens as reel life father-son. The fresh pairing of Pukhraj-Hasneen was also appealing. 

Apart from these, the film stars Seema Kaushal in the role of Pukhraj’s mother, and Anita Devgan and Sukhwinder Chahal as the parents of Hashneen. And all of these actors are given enough screen space to entertain their fans with their acting skills. 

But we personally feel the film’s team has actually underutilized the starcast. There is no doubt in the fact that the star cast of Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha is extremely talented. But they could do a lot of magic on screen this time. 

There is one more person in the film who plays a pivotal role, but as mentioned earlier, we are not mentioning much about the villain, as it is supposed to remain a surprise for you. 

Best On-Screen

You must be thinking of why we didn’t include a supporting cast when we discussed the film’s characters just above. It is because we want to bring their performance to your highlight separately.

Honey Mattu in the role of Pukhraj Bhalla’s friend is super entertaining. He ensures he steals the show with his on-point dialogue delivery and expressions. On the other hand, one man we absolutely enjoyed watching in every frame was Ashok Pathak. He plays the role of a jolly shopkeeper who is madly in love and talks about love. 


The music of the film can be considered average. We liked Prabh Gill’s Heer Wargiye which stood out from the film’s playlist, but otherwise, the songs and background score were not too enchanting. 


While we are writing a detailed Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha movie review for you, it’s also important to highlight the weak points of the film. And in this one, the dialogues failed to impress us. Some of them were lame and some comic dialogues went flat as well, which affected the overall vibe of the various scenes. 

Direction & Editing 

The film has been directed by Satinder Singh Dev, and Krishna Rodge has edited its final cut. And these are the people who had the chance to make the film look better. the sequences which went bland or were unnecessarily adding to the length of the film could have been removed or chopped off. 

Writing And Screenplay

To be honest, one thing that disappointed us in the film the most was its writing and the plot. After discussing the weak dialogues, we are talking about the typical storyline of the film.

We did not like the fact that the film’s original and selling theme was lost somewhere in between. The film holds an all-different perspective and heads forward with it. This sudden change was abrupt and to add to the discomfort, even more, the film goes on to follow a very predictable series of events. 


To conclude the overall Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha Review, we can write the film is an entertainer which will help you to destress. Yes, there are some weak points, but they can be ignored if you are entering the theaters to only get a dose of entertainment and have a good time with your friends. 

Pukhraj Bhalla and Jaswinder Bhalla’s Mahi Mera Nikka Jeha surely is a treat for all the fans of this father-son duo. You can watch the film with your families and enjoy light-hearted entertainment in the theaters.
