sadda haq

AMRITSAR: The Punjabi film Sadda Haq that depicts real life events from the days of terrorism in Punjab in the early 80s, has been banned in India before its release.

Banning the film’s release, the Censor Board has not passed it owing to representation of certain events portrayed in the film that the Board has found to be objectionable.

“History repeats itself when mistakes committed in history are not checked and improved upon. So, we were hoping this film turns out to be an eye-opener for everyone, the government and the people,” says Kuljinder Singh Sidhu, scriptwriter of the film who also played a crucial role in it, “There are two plots in this film. The first portrays times of militancy and the second reveals the viewpoint of today’s youth pertaining to those times.”

Claimed to be the first fictionalized film in Punjabi cinema based on true life events, Sadda Haq, directed by Mandeep Benipal, had gathered a decent buzz online since its started production in Anandpur Sahib, Punjab, on Baisakhi this year. The film also stars Parmod Matho, Dinesh Sood, Dhriti Saharan, Gaurav Kakkar.
