  1. What are some good movies, documentaries or shows to watch? anything? Just watched Training Day for the 100th time lol one of my favorite movies. Money Heist is gd too
  2. I dnt really watch hindi movies much, just watch a few gd ones. One thing iv noticed is that since bjp has come to power and really pushed hindu culture to the front a lot of movies have been made about hindus and hindu culture/history most of these movies have been about hindus defeating muslims. movies have been made about the maratha empire a empire which the shiv sena etc always been talking about maratha empire in india symbolizes hindu victory over Islamic, restoration of hindu rule/state which is why the hindu parties love the maratha empire maratha empire is like their symbol in a way padmavati movie was released which was about a evil muslim ruler wanting to marry the already married rajput queen padmavaat. the movie ends with padmavaat and other rajput ladies committing sati/johaur to save their honor from the muslim invader after their husbands have been killed in battle bajirao mastani was a movie about the maratha empire panipat recently got released about the last battle of panipat marathas vs muslims in reality the muslims actually defeated the marathas but in the movie they have shown the marathas defeating the muslims! distorted history ajay devgan made a movie called tanhaji a movie about a maratha warrior theres a movie about the india/pak war in 1971 where india defeated pak a movie was made about the 21 singhs that went into battle with 1000s of pathans think the movie was called kesari once again sikh/indian vs muslims iv read news articles about ajay devgan and amir khan both showing interest in making a movie about hari singh nalwa sikh/indian vs muslim and there have been other similar movies these kind of movies never used to be made b4 and have only been made since bjp have come into power and i wouldnt be surprised if som1 decides to make a movie on one of the sikh historical battles against the muslims they probably gnna make a movie about the rajputs defeating the arab caliphs just something that i noticed ....

    Punjabi Cinema

    Why do a good majority of Punjabi movies promote caste when we as Sikhs ideologically are not supposed to be following the caste system? If the word "Jatt" isn't mentioned in a typical movie (which most likely it will) then at least the last names of all major characters are mentioned to indirectly denote their caste. I don't get why this agenda is pushed out by Punjabi Cinema and no one really speaks against it? Because it appeases the majority population and thus usage of this single word can make the film a cash cow? I don't mean to take jabs at anyone, as the only example I can use in context of Punjabi Cinema is Jatt promotion. But I guess the point of my question is; why is any type of caste promotion of any caste not looked down upon by mainstream Sikh Punjabis? Is there a solution to it?
  4. In the past fews I'm sure everyone has noticed an increase in movies about this topic, and like many others I support the idea of making a few movies regarding this topic. However, too say it plainly, basically every movie made sucks. The editing is horrible, the acting is subpar and usualy filled with corny dialogue, and unnecessary love stories involved. Diljit Dosanjhs 1984 was made 10x better, if the movie had shown kharkus in more positive light, it'd be a complete hit. While other punjabi movies attract a lot of young people, these movies attract barely any because of the reasons above. Is it possible some producers purposely throw out a medicore film, hoping it'll be a hit simply by exploitation of the topic? We've already had 3 such movies I think this year, in for one or two,
  5. what are movies people like with deeper meanings possibly spiritual, movies with metaphors, allegories? believe it or not, hercules from disney has many deeper messages (je vekhan wali akh hove, te sunan wale kan)
  6. WJKK WJKF So we all know that Hollywood and Bollywood profit off of movies so much because people love watching their movies. There're good movies out there that bring positive messages to the youth. At the same time though, so much bs is produced (especially by bollywood) that does absolutely no good to the minds of people. Recently, "empty inside" was a punjabi movie that was released and it was an amazing movie with a very positive message. I live in Canada and the movie was played at the Gurdwara. When they started playing it, about 3/4 of the kids left when they realized the movie was in Punjabi and based in India. In 2011, when breakaway was released it sold so many tickets in theatres and everything was sold out everywhere. And the main audience was Sikh youth. The same thing happened when Ocean of Pearls was released, crazy amounts of tickets were sold. The only difference between them is the fact that breakaway and Ocean of Pearls were both in English and took place in a western setting. I'm 16 years old and I can guarantee that if more Sikh movies are released that are in English, they will get larger viewing audiences and they'll benefit people way more than all the other garbage they're exposed to by hollywood and bollywood. What're your opinions on this? Would it or would it not be a good idea for more Sikhi based movies in English to be made? WJKK WJKF
  7. Could Sangat plz post Sikhi movies and Sikhi cartoons here and even where they can be purchased. I wish to start a sikh DVD collection. So currently have all the sikh animated films by vismaad. There is one movie about Guru Go bind Singh jee watched it when I was younger, it shows a Hindu pundit being executed by bearing buried alive head deep and having dogs set on him anyone know what this one was called ?
