Udta Punjab (2016)

This Will Be The Shooting Location Of Sidharth Malhotra Starrer Thadam Remake

Controversies surrounding Udta Punjab finally came to end as the dark-thriller drama released on 17th June 2016 with high expectation thanks to the unwanted publicity it received. Udta Punjab is story of 4 people whose lives have been influenced by the drug menace very much evident in the North Indian state of Punjab where it becomes easy money for peddlers selling heroin and opium through the safe hands of politicians.

Director Abhishek Chaubey, previously helmed the well-liked Ishqiya and not-so good Dedh Ishqiya, took a step forward and created a niche subject never been attempted on Indian cinema before. Hats off to him and definitely to the producer Anurag Kashyap for taking the stand through out the controversies surrounding the film. The film was a brave attempt and had nail-biting moments

Nagesh Kukunoor has come a long way from his early days of Hyderabad Blues, RockFord, 3 Deewarein, Iqbal, Dor to Lakshmi. Just like Iqbal, Dhanak is a feel-good cinema that gives a strong message that anything is possible in life if you have a positive attitude. The screenplay, also written by Kukunoor, was superb keeping on your toes with comic scenes between brother and sister that will surely bring down the house. The movie was salvaged due to high publicity given to Udta Punjab but I would strongly recommend to watch it.

Dhanak collected a mere Rs 1.91 crore but went to National Award for Best Children’s Film.
