Review By : Priyanka Raina
True Cinema should be judged by giving a Certain message to Public, by showing the bitter side of realism , that needs to be stooped & not just songs which have no meaning and are totally squander their motive towards the youth.
When ever a movie is made on reality to reveal the bitter side of these Politicians on how they mislead Common Man , just to save their Elections - Its really Heart breaking. Movie on Real Facts weather its National Award winning film Dimple Kapadia's Zakhmi Aurat or My name is Khan, has landed with Censor Controversies initially which is pain for filmmakers.
UDTA PUNJAB opens on Punjab - Pakistan Borders with supplying of Drugs from the neighboring country. Udta Punjab is a Story of London return Pop Singer GABRU (Shahid Kapoor) who is the heart of every one & Takes Drugs while recording to come in Mood. Satish Kaushik who is portraying Music Director is some where responsible for GABRU's intake of Drugs, which makes Gabru land in a bigger problem
On the Other Hand , A girl from Bihar (Aliaa Bhatt) who gets drugs from field while some was selling and smells it. Accordingly she tries to sell it which creates a Problem for her.
Now Gabru meets Aliaa on a Barren land and suddenly releases that he is disliking drugs and tries to search her when they are separated by the drug dealers.
Now on the Other side Preet Sahani (Kareena Kapoor) who portrays the role of Doctor when sees on Drugs in blood on checking patient , then researches with Inspector Sartaj Singh (Daljit) whose Brother became victim that these are being supplied in Medical shops for just Rs 50 with Prescription.
And then Truks are being allowed to pass Toll , because politician were giving them heavy price , and the Owner was Big man. Also UDTA PUNJAB will show a leading Politician in a Drugs Factory telling workers to Do work fast , when Preet Sahani and Inspector do sting Operation. Well, Rest is the story that will show the Bitter facts what a poltician can do to win the Elections.
Review : Four Stars to the Film - Firstly to Shahid kapoor and Aliaa Bhatt for their Hard performances of a Druggist, Secondly to the Direction for mainting a tight screelplay to reveal realism, Third to entire cast for showing courage to do such a film which can be scary for lives too and Last but not Least Fourth to the Real Brave Makers Anurag Kashyap and Ekta Kapoor for making a story to reveal Bitter aspect of politicians.
