Punjab 1984 – A Riveting Story That Claims To Mesmerize Audiences 

TORONTO – The upcoming new flick, Punjab 1984 directed by Anurag Singh and produced by White Hill Productions is a heart  rendering story of a young boy, Diljit Dosanjh living in the Punjab province during 1984 and his mother, Kirron Kher. Diljit told audiences during his recent interview with Yudhvir Jaswal at Southasian Pulse radio show. He said the movie is unlike the usual crop of masala Indian movies and would see both Diljit and Kirron at their best. The singer turned actor Diljit, known more for his comic roles in movies like Jatt & Juliet is ecstatic on doing this film and informed he agreed to shrug off his comic cloak and play this very difficult role after reading the script. And according to the director in the mother’s role they could not find a better fit than Kirron. Diljit said the movie will not only touch a chord with Punjabis who were victimized during the 1984 Operation Blue Star period but will transcend regional barriers for showing a mother’s relentless love for her child. 0The movie documents a serious issue highlighted by Amnesty International some time back – the disappearance of young men with their fate hanging in balance, and families and friends having no clue of their existence. The screenplay of Punjab 1984 also moves on this delicate topic showing the anguish of a mother who is out in wilderness and on a quest to search her son. Diljit claimed the movie is unlike others made earlier in Hindi and Punjabi and is not a political drama. As a period film, the director has tried to keep it closer to the original locale and directed the movie after a three-year long research and talks with 25 families in Punjab who are also part of the movie. This well directed movie will surely touch the strings of all sensitive hearts that admire good cinema and wish to enjoy a film over the weekend with the whole family without facing any embarrassing moments. The film is timed with the 30th anniversary of attack on Golden Temple and will hit 60 theatres across GTA on June 27
