    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?

    Khalistan/sikh Sangharsh Movies.

    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,
  3. 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)
  4. 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
