Storyline

In 1984 the former Indian Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards, and since then the Sikhs have been a target of violent backlashes by radicals and the Punjab Police. During 1985 Gursharan Singh Soman lived a peaceful life as a farmer in rural Punjab, along with his elderly parents, Gurdev and Tejpal, and an unmarried sister, Guddi. Gursharan meets with and gets engaged to the Station House Officer's only daughter, Jassi Sandhu. Shortly thereafter her father is killed in a drive-by shooting, and a new Officer, Randhawa, takes over from him. Far from being ethical and honest, he is only concerned with fulfilling a quota of deaths of so-called terrorists by fake police encounters. Jassi and Gursharan get married as Jassi has no other relatives. When the police find a duffel bag of automatic weapons in Soman's house, they immediately arrest Gursharan and beat him up severely, even though he claims his innocence, alleging that real terrorists had forced ...

This movie was Excellent
27 April 2005 | by Elven6See all my reviews

This movie was good it focused around the times when Indra Gandhi was assassinated and the riots and discrimination that took place between Hindus and Sikhs.

I just have a few negative things to say about it tho first of all they needed to get there facts straight. I wont name what because I want to see if you guys can find them. But here is a obvious one. The story takes place in 1986 and when Gurdas Mann comes to USA seeking Political freedom they have brand new houses probably made 2-3 years back, they have new cars probably between the years 2003-2005.

But besides that it is a good movie. I recommend seeing Hawyen it is also based around those times. But i warn you Hawyen is sort of gory
