There's a vibe of "we jumped in without a clue, but we still did it" that carries through, with little moments of genuine openness.
The docu series goes beyond the team's rise to their current status. What truly gives us insight is when he speaks as Amrit, not just AP. We catch glimpses of his doubts, dilemmas, vulnerability, and pressure.
However, there's room for improvement in delving deeper into 'Amrit.'
"I like Amrit more than AP" he says. "There's AP and there's Amrit. See AP on Insta and Tik Tok. Amrit is like...a regular normal being, you know."
He speaks about his grandmother's significance, growing up with a single parent. Yet, the circumstances of leaving his 'pind' for Canada and why he had to sleep on the streets upon arrival remain unanswered.
The series does well in showcasing his and his father's emotions. More of that assurance, revealing even stars like AP Dhillon can falter, would have been valuable.
