Udta Punjab – Movie Review

4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

One of the most controversial movie is released today with rock solid performances and an excellent plot which is making some people furious in the country. As seen on trailer, movie is all about the insurgence of substance in the youth of Punjab State. Story is portraying the current status of Punjab youth via a Rockstar, a labour girl, a doctor and a police man. Shahid Kapoor is playing the role of a Rockstar who is completely addicted to drugs and somehow he promoted the same through his songs and performances throughout the state and other places. Youth following him are inspired by him and thus, misguide themselves to walk on the path of drugs.


Alia Bhatt is in the role of a labourer girl from Bihar and somehow get caught into the drug racket due to the greed of making instant money and success. Kareena Kapoor a doctor from Punjab is protesting against the drugs in the state. She made a plan, with the help of a police person Dilijit Dosanjh, to bust the whole racket, and the movie goes on with awesome thrill and good story narration. Mix and match of three different situations together is not easy for a film maker, but it is beautifully done in the movie by director Abhishek Chaubey.


Casting is so beautifully done in the movie that, it is like real characters of real life. Hats off to Alia Bhatt for her wonderful performance, I believe she overshadowed every other person in the movie. After Alia, Shahid did an outstanding performance, he is maintaining his legacy to being into mature movies like Kaminey and now this one. On the other side, Dilijit is there with such nice and charming personality that he completely nailed the role of a Punjab Police person. A briliiant natural acting from a new comer Prabhjyot Singh as Balli in the movie is commendable, you must watch the movie to see him as brother of Dilijit there. Kareena adding a little romantic flavor to the movie with Dilijit is making the movie a complete Bollywood package with extra ordinary acting, direction and screenplay.

Watch it for some real acting performance with a thrilling story plot.
