Cast : Shahid Kapoor , Alia Bhatt , Kareena Kapoor khan , Diljit Dosanjh.
Direction : Abhishek Chaubey.
Plot : Udta Punjab has been in news for the past couple of weeks and I m sure that everybody who follows the social media will definitely have a fair idea of the movie’s plot .
My views: Udta Punjab starts with the longest disclaimer i have seen in movies so far . I bet almost everybody knows that Udta Punjab is about the drug menace in Punjab . Like the opening song sings out loud , boys,girls,women,men ,nobody is spared of the white powder.Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt , are such a delight to watch on screen , they are the soul performers of Udta Punjab. I liked Tommy Singh the most . Does the character Tommy Singh have a resemblance to honey Singh ? One worships drugs in his songs and the other alcohol. Kareena , shahid and Alia have all got their accents right . There is anticipation that is maintained thoughout the movie . Comedy has been handled well by Shahid and Alia. Udta Punjab doesn’t preach.Drug withdrawal symptoms are intense and not many can handle them .i liked the poetic portrayal of hope in the swimming pool .and the movie aptly ends with Alia swimming past the light in the pool . Udta Punjab is slightly longer than 2 hours and I was hooked to the screen ,and did not even realize how the time passed by. Udta Punjab is a good watch and I would suggest watching it on the big screen itself .
Quotes that caught me :
Work in progress hai.
Nobody fires Tommy, only Tommy fires Tommy.
Fuddu fuddu hota hai, lallu lallu hota hai.
Mera mojo vaapas aa gaya hai yaar.
In a scene , the drug dealer is seen being beaten up using a iron rod. In the next scene , it is replaced by a cricket bat .
