Storyline

After the Indian Government ordered troops into the Soni Darbar in Amritsar, angering Sikhs worldwide, leading to the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi during 1984, followed by violence against the Sikhs, and instructions to Police to hunt down and apprehend all suspected terrorists. Karnail Singh was one such suspect, who claims that he has had no hand in any terrorism activity, but is nevertheless pursued by the Police, leaving his widowed mom, Kartar, and sister, Parsan, to fend for themselves by running a Dhaba and being subjected to harassment at the hands of Inspector Ujagar Singh, while the village Mukhiya wants Parsan to get married to a much older Narang Singh. Parsan's problems are resolved when Indian Army Captain Nihal Singh intervenes, and marries her, even though her mom, beaten senseless by the Police, passes away on the day of the marriage.

A great Punjabi movie depicting the brutalities of 1980s Punjab.
17 September 2007 | by vjkaramSee all my reviews

One of the best Punjabi movies I ever saw. Jimmy Shergill did a wonderful role as Captain Nihal Singh. Kulraj who played his wife Prasan Kaur in this movie is such a beautiful girl and she did justice to her role.

The movie did a good job exposing the police brutality in the 1980s in Punjab. The villain - Inspector Jhotekutt - was a common thing in Punjab in those days.

The movie was full of tragedies but the ending is good.

This Punjabi movie was in par with Hindi movies. Hopefully, they make more such movies. The Punjabi spoken in this movie was real and not urban Punjabi or the one spoken in Delhi. It was really village Punjabi. Shergill speaks very cool Punjabi.

In short, it was worth watching and it was time well spent.
