Udta Punjab – the film that saw it all! The fear of Ban, the Censor Board’s unreasonable interference, and then the online leaking! But despite everything the fact is that Udta Punjab will succeed. And one of the main reasons behind it (other than its immensely honest content) will be our man, Diljit Dosanjh!
We are not being biased here but the fact is that the STAR of Udta Punjab is our very own Punjabi boy Diljit Dosanjh. He is the central character of the movie – the main attraction. He is the one around whom the whole film revolves. And we feel that this was the best decision that Diljit Dosanjh made – to do a film like Udta Punjab and prove to all his critics and haters what a powerful actor he is! He is, inarguably, the ‘Jaan’ of Udta Punjab. His brilliant portrayal of ‘Sartaj’ is sure to win him immense admiration, and respect from all quarters. What’s noteworthy is the effort that Diljit has invested in looking the part. Right from his body language,, the facial expressions to the dialogue delivery, Diljit has pushed himself beyond limits to illustrate this character and leaves you astonished at varied stages of the film! You can’t help but admire the hard work, commitment and sincerity of the actor.
Regarding the film, we would refrain from posting its review as this film is not something that can please every strata of the society. It’s made for a particular type of audience, who can really understand the filmmaker’s intentions, which are a genuine attempt at going beneath the surface of our ‘Udta Punjab’ – to see the dark reality that we more often than not, like to sweep under the carpet. Some may completely criticize this movie for the endless abuses hurled by the characters, while some may totally deny it with the viewpoint as this is another attempt to defame the image of our ‘Udta’ Punjab.
If you think it’s a typical Diljit Dosanjh film then Sorry kiddos! It’s not! The film is intricately layered but Diljit Dosanjh is one character you’d fall in love with after watching this film.
Go and watch this film for Diljit Dosanjh. He deserves every bit of attention, adulation and appreciation right now. He’s done us proud! He’s done Punjab proud. Love you Diljit!
