Storyline

What on earth can a rock star, a migrant laborer, a doctor and a cop possibly have in common? Simple, Punjab! 4 lives, 1 connection - 'Udta Punjab' takes you on a trip like never before. Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh play characters from different walks of life, fighting the menace of drugs in their own way. The film journeys into the artificial highs and the real lows that they face while treading the paths fraught with mortal dangers. But above all, Udta Punjab is about the famed Punjabi spirit, that despite being fully down, has the audacity of looking you in the eye and saying - Drugs di maa di!

Quotes

Kumari Pinky: There's this big billboard I can see from the window. An advertisement for a Goa holiday. That's all I keep staring at all the time, without a blink. Because I believe that, that is my 'good time'. And that day will come.When it does, I will ask it; "Where were you all this while? Waiting for me to be shattered? Is that what it takes for you to come? But here I am, and I refuse to fall apart! I am still standing!"
[breaks into a howl]
Kumari Pinky: I am still waiting.

Raw, Exposing , well crafted movie!!

so much to say about this movie as, it is one of the best movie of this till date with superb acting of all star cast , specially of Shahid and Alia , it does deliver the powerful punch for those who are all against of this movie release , but see for your self to believe as i am not exaggerated

as this movie deliver the social message and to be honest well are aware of the politician who are behind the drug supply in Punjab

song are nice, as so screenplay could have been more tight, but overall turn out the best , all credit goes to director for bringing out the best performance from all star cast , majorly most of the dialogues are in Punjabi and also the songs which goes with the situation and not to mention the background score is really great

please watch in theater as this movie deserve that
