New Punjabi film Sadda Haq on 1984 and post issues faced by panth.

What do you think, will this help the Sikh cause of getting Khalistan, invoke discipline in Sikhs in Punjab (those influenced by drugs) or just present Sikhs as terrorists?

Sikhs will distribute this video like lions!

Since when did Sikhs care about censorship? They can crap out bollywood trash and throw it into Punjab insulting SIkhs, but Sikhs can't roar with their own history?

Looks worthwhile watching and promoting. Are the character's fictional?

Characters are based on real life people. The characters featured in the film are based on:

Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara.

Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara.

Shaheed Bhai Jaswant Singh Ji Khalara.

Bhai Balwant Singh Ji Rajoana.

Shaheed Bhai Dilawer Singh Ji.

Bhai Paramjit Singh Bheora.

K.P.S Gill.

Beant Singh (not sure about this one).


Who's distributing the film in then UK? Not seen any local publicity yet.

If u go on their facebook page u will see they are looking for distributors overseas.

this movie is still not approved by censor according to saadaa haq facebook page.

its a brave effort to make movies like this though.

What happened to that documentary "Martyrs" did India release it? I know a few Islamic extremists, especially that website run by dear Abu Adeeba had a big spaz about it but that did not stop it from being presented to Sikhs overseas.

Ban on 'Sadda Haq' lifted, to be released on Apr 5

Hindustan Times
Chandigarh, January 31, 2013

Sadda Haq', a much-awaited Punjabi film dealing with the days of terrorism in Punjab, will witness a worldwide release in theatres on April 5 as the censor board has lifted its ban on the movie.
The Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) of the censor board gave the green

signal to the film after four-month-long deliberations with the film production team and legal luminaries, the film's producer-cum-writer Kuljinder Singh Sidhu said at a press conference here on Thursday.

"FCAT chairman Lalit Basin, in the presence of various members of the review committee, notified the censor board through a written notice that the film is based on facts and gives a good social message, so there is nothing objectionable in it," said Sidhu.

The Mumbai censor board had imposed a ban on the film, which was submitted to the board for its release on October 20, 2012. The ban was imposed without any particular reason being cited, Sidhu said.

On November 14, 2012, the film producer appealed to the review committee of the board, but the panel also banned the film, mentioning in its report that it presented a wrong picture of the police and the government of that time.

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Avtar Singh Makkar had also taken up the matter with the board after watching the film, Sidhu said.

"We have finally got the certification after minor changes dealing with the role of the police during that period," he said.

The murder of human rights activist Jaswant Singh Khalra, the mass cremations of unclaimed bodies for which the National Human Rights Commission directed financial compensation for the bereaved families shady encounters and the cases in which certain cops were even convicted by courts are dealt with in the film.

"'Sadda Haq' endeavours to narrate the disruptive and excruciating history of Punjab to the public so that they get to know what actually happened in Punjab," he said.

Many other political Sikh organisations, religious congregations and cultural organisations had also appealed to lift the ban on the film's release, he added.
