The movie starts with a night scene where 3 persons from Pakistan throw a packet over the border wires to the fields of Punjab. We see Shahid Kapoor as a rock star who himself is a drug addict and sings a song (Chitta Ve) with similar lyrics. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt (who is a migrant laborer from Bihar) picks that packet. Both Shahid & Alia are playing role of the addicts in the movie. Diljit Dosanjh is a policeman in the movie and his brother is also a drug addict. Diljit meets Kareena Kapoor who is a doctor, regarding his brother’s treatment.

All the 4 lives are involved around drugs. The movie is showing the actual condition of youth in Punjab like how badly they are trapped by this drug addiction.

My Take on Udta Punjab

I enjoyed the complete movie. I have seen some children taking drugs in Delhi as well. I saw a kid who was around 10 years and was smelling some liquid from his handkerchief. It’s not just a problem to Punjab only but it is wake up alarm for whole nation.

  1. Shahid and Alia has done exceptionally well in the movie. they are phenomenal in their character.
  2. Diljit as cop in Punjab Police has done a fabulous role.
  3. The movie has a great story line.
  4. The director has chosen best locations as per the scene demand.
  5. The songs and music are making a great build up in the movie.
  1. In some scenes, I found those abuses unnecessary. Around 40 times the word Bh*****d is being used by different actors.
  2. Some of the Kareena’s dialogues are dubbed whenever Punjabi is being spoken.


My Ratings : ★★★★ (4.0/5)

I would recommend all the readers to go and watch the movie. It will not disappoint you. Afterall “Baat Aapki Aur Meri Nahi Hai, Ye Baat Poore Punjab Ki Hai. Poore Youth Ki Hai.


  • Be it Udta Punjab or any similar movie, controversies always helped the movies in question. Given proliferation of uncountable news channels and sensationalization of most ireerevant matters to gain TRP has helped some busineses, movies in particular.
    Verdict given by Hon’ble Supreme court has saved the hard work of director. Hope it helps people to understand the depth of drug addiction, apart from gross entertainment.

    It’s a win-win situation.

  • Watching it makes you realize why someone must have tried so hard to censor it and why it was equally necessary to prevent that censorship.

  • You have brought out the pros and cons nicely

  • i like Udta Punjab movie …..very nice
