The comedy drama film, Bambukat has been directed by Pankaj Batra and produced by Ameik Virk and Karaj Gill. The gripping screenplay of the movie has been taken care of by Jass Grewal while the music has been composed by massively-talented Jatinder Shah. The credit for splendid cinematography goes to Vineet Malhotra and the movie has been edited by Manish More while everyone knows that it is produced under Rhythm Boyz Entertainment and Nadar films.
Jass Grewal pens an innocent story of yesteryears which delightfully portrays the anatomy of relationships in a village of Punjab. Bambukat, which basically means a motorcycle is definitely an apt title for the film, which has been set in the conventional Punjab of 1960s. But Bambukat is NOT just what the film is about!! In fact Bambukat is a prop used to tell a story which can touch anybody’s heart and make him/her ponder over some intricate societal issues.
Simmi Chahal plays the role of Pakko, a women with a misty complexion who is married to Chanan Singh, Ammy Virk. They both belong to a village and are not financially very strong, but that doesn’t effect Chanan’s love for Pakko and Bambukat in any way. However, one fine day when they both are invited from Pakko’s maternal home, they feel tormented after encountering their partial behavior. The family seems to be obliged by her fair complexioned sister, Sami which is played by Sheetal Thakur and her affluent husband Resham Singh, Binnu Dhillon who is a railway officer, and a proud owner of a motorcycle.
Bambukat further represents all the atrocities Chanan and Pakko encounter owing to poor status and dark complexion, and how they face all the odds courageously. The subtle amount of romance, drama, action and comedy does justice to the storyline, providing relief to the audience. The characters of the movie have various layers of complexity which are deceivingly simple. But in reality, they hold deep meaning. Bambukat can certainly be called a family entertainer which will leave you with a whole lot of perspective to break the shackles of color and status stereotypes. So go ahead and watch this movie, and see if Chanan manages to get a Bambukat or not!
