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!
The film ran into trouble with the Central Board of Film Certification for it's graphic depiction of drug abuse and explicit language. The film initially received 13 cuts, which amount to a total of 89 deletions, from the Revising committee of the Central Board of Film Certification. The producers (Phantom Films) sought the help of Mumbai High Court to sort out the issue and eventually got the film cleared with only one cut and with an Adult rating. See more »
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]
I am still waiting.

The movie is not just any kinda movie with fun and laughter. Its the truth that someone had to bring out eventually. I am glad that Supreme Court intervened and minimized the cuts otherwise a piece of art would have been sacrificed. After seeing the movie you will realize that how sad it is that a state that once had a martyr born in every house has now being replaced by a druggie in every house. Its an old saying that if you want to destroy a country targeting its youth is one of the many initial steps one takes. And it takes only minutes of watch to see who supplies the drugs. That is just one aspect and not just that, the movie then focuses its attention to the basic route and mode of operation of this cartel.This is a must watch movie and one must not just watch it for fun rather one must feel pity for the sorry state of the state that once bubbled with life and energy. As the story revolves around four characters independently at first they are later interwoven though not the best but in an appreciable manner. Shahid and Alia steal the show. There characters are flawless and there screenplay is superb. Diljit the apple of eye of all Punjabi added his best bits and his work is worth commending. I did feel that after the interval the movie was bit too long. The flaw is in editing section and it could have been a lot better. It could have been chipped in some places and it could have saved a few minutes that gave a lethargic feeling. But anyways, overall the movie was worth a watch and a to be recommended one as well. Its not everyday when you see a marvel being created and presented unaltered or unscathed. I am glad Anurag and his team fought till the end to save this piece of art.
