Hello Surties, Friday is here and we know what Friday brings- a new movie. This week’s movie is Udta Punjab; the much talked film is a crime thriller, which deals with the drug abuse in Punjab. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, starring Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh, is receiving positive reviews from the audience around the world. Our question Surties is whether this is worth our time, so I am here to review the movie for you and believe me by the end of this blog you will know whether you are booking for a show or not.
The film has been in talks for months now for its boldness and scripting the truth, talking about the script it has been written by the very talented Sudip Sharma and Abhishek Chaubey himself, it focuses on the impact and menace of drug abuse on society. The movie is intended to spread awareness about drugs on youth and society in general.
The story of “Udta Punjab” is about four characters — a rock star (Shahid Kapoor), a migrant labourer (Alia Bhatt), a doctor (Kareena Kapoor) and a policeman (Diljit Dosanjh). All these four lives have one connection. The characters from different walks of life are fighting the menace of drugs in their own way.
“Udta Punjab” focuses on the double life of drug addicts and how they bury themselves in the comfort for the limited time of high, the fake relief and its side effects. The movie is a realistic and emotional journey. It is also high on abusive language. Director Abhishek Chaubey has done an excellent job in scripting the film, and has an amazing grip over the narration of the story. He portrays a serious issue in an entertaining way, a way that is easily relatable.
Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh have delivered brilliant performances, which is the highlight of “Udta Punjab.” Also Shahid and Kareena sharing the big screen again, gives a high motive for viewing itself. You can’t say you haven’t waited for this to happen. Being an Ekta Kapoor production under the Balaji banner and Phantom Films has added rich production values.
The movie has had great reviews from all over, Diljit Dosanjh is very good and so is Kareena Kapoor. On the other hand, Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are phenomenal! #UdtaPunjab spreads awareness about a very important issue in a very entertaining manner! This film is hilarious in many parts! And still, its emotional content is too strong! Excellent work on direction, writing, screenplay and editing. Never bores you. #UdtaPunjab is a must watch! This film, while dealing with an important issue, doesn’t preach. It grips you with its emotional and funny content! I salute the makers for making such a bold film! #UdtaPunjab 4.5* from me!
