Udta Punjab

Udta Punjab

United Punjab! The term immediately conjures up scenarios from a Bridget Jones Diary or a mafia film. Udta Punjab, on the other hand, is actually about a girl named Prem Chopra who relocates to New York City and isn't at all about gangsters. Her boss fears that she might be disloyal, so she leaves to join a Bollywood dance bar right after she just got out of her planned marriage to her Pakistani boyfriend.


The movie Udta Punjab tells the tale of how common ladies from a tiny hamlet in India can defeat their depressing, nasty employers and achieve stardom in Bollywood.


The plot builds and develops, taking the audience on an emotional roller coaster that is ratcheted up and ratcheted down. The first part of the movie follows a typical girl as she goes through the motions of settling into new surroundings and making an effort to make friends. However, you begin to wonder, "How did we get here?" as the movie draws to a close. What was the origin of all this?


Udta Punjab's first half always struck me as being really serious, horrifying, and styled in a manner resembling a docu-feature. Once you've witnessed these lines repeated on-screen in a number of different languages, once in one Hindi film, no less, and twice in more than a dozen Bollywood films, no less, you'll understand the astounding shock value.


But the moment things start to get a bit saucy, the entire narrative begins to take on a life of its own. I adore drug traffickers in particular. There is a moment where the girl's boss hands her a package of narcotics that he claims is from her father and contains "Indian crystal."


The entire film simply lays out for us the abject agony of exposing a girl to drugs and the horrifying repercussions that such an act could have. What's even more shocking is that she isn't even old enough to drive! Additionally, we are supposed to believe that the only reason she is allowed to drive is because her parents are supporting her and assisting her in her efforts to get money, which is a fine point in and of itself.


A radically different tone is used in the second half of Udta Punjab, which depicts the drug epidemic. I've always believed that the drug problem in India is portrayed as being a home-grown, evil thing brought on by impoverished rural living conditions, with a few corrupt individuals boosting the numbers to a terrifying degree. Everything is different in Udta Punjab. A new resonance has been added to the idea that the entire drug problem is a result of the depraved schemes of dishonest politicians who stoke drug use among the underclass.


Politicians' involvement in the drug epidemic is depicted negatively in Udta Punjab. True, there are corrupt individuals and groups in both the administration and the police,


and possibly some politicians who need to be watched out for, but the worst are the young ones, the kids who create these businesses and bring in money for themselves and their buddies. Abhishek Chaubey's drug lords and their thugs are portrayed as ruthless criminals, yet in their eyes, they are merely children who have been shielded from India's harsh realities. And the film strives to show the awful effects that these kids have to endure, not in the negligible percentages that the others have to endure, but in terrifying scenes that make you want to protect your kid from these vile and corrosive influences.


The protagonist of Udta Punjab, a teenager named Diljit Dosanjh, embodies the modern teen. In addition to enjoying music, movies, skating, and video games, he is also overly active, carefree, rude, and haughty. Although most of us are aware of what happens in the drug world and the risks involved, we rarely see our young people attending parties where drugs are openly enjoyed. We also don't fully understand how these boys and girls' minds work or how they decide to enter the rat race in search of fame, fortune, and other material possessions that will only bring about disaster.


Nobody should watch Udta Punjab, it's not a "must see." However, you should see this if you enjoy watching movies, particularly Indian ones. Strong messages are conveyed, and the script and performances are excellent. Nobody tries to deceive the audience by claiming that their product is inspirational or informative; instead, everyone just wants to sell them something. Although the movie is a must-see for all age groups, regardless of their sensibilities, even if one doesn't agree with the message, it is still a terrific viewing.
