These songs vary in genre, from passionate ballads and love tunes to forceful feminist anthems, adding depth and emotion to the film's plot.

The teaser for the film was released a while ago, providing a look inside Diljit Dosanjh's portrayal of 'Chamkila,' the famed artist who rose to prominence in the 1980s despite modest origins in poverty. His music, while widely acclaimed, sparked controversy and animosity in certain circles, eventually leading to his sad death at the age of 27.

Despite his opposition to being dubbed Chamkila, the organiser dismisses it, anticipating that his name will be forgotten anyhow. Nonetheless, Chamkila's music resonates with the people, particularly the ladies, despite conservative voices criticising the songs' explicit lyrics. He eventually meets Amarjot Kaur (Parineeti Chopra), who becomes his musical collaborator, laying the foundation for their adventure together.

Amar Singh Chamkila's Twitter Review
Upon its premiere, the film elicited a rush of replies on Twitter, with sentiments ranging from acclaim to criticism. While some praised Diljit's performance, others complimented Imtiyaz Ali on his directing and storyline.

Another wrote, “a few aspects of Chamkila’s life are not depicted  properly and come up all of a sudden. The length is a major problem,  especially in the second half. Also, the execution is such that it takes  a while to get used to it”
