Punjab 1984 Movie Review – Facts Distorted, Movie Influenced By Govt. Propaganda

Recommended Posts

Published: June 27, 2014

Today, I got a chance to watch Diljit Dosanjh’s movie “Punjab 1984”. During the promotion of this movie it was said that the film was based on facts which presents the trauma of 1984.

No doubt, the movie is made while relating to the story with the times of 1984. The movie starts with death of a character who gets killed by army while he was going to Darbar Sahib on martyrdom anniversary of Guru Arjan Sahib Ji.

But in no way the movie appears to be based on true facts. While presenting the police torture/ atrocities on masses, the (Sikh) militant movement is also shown as a cruel movement; as it’s often presented by the state propaganda machinery.

Militants, who were shown as heading struggle for Khalistan kills Hindus while pulling them out of buses and plant bombs in buses to kill common people.

Presenting a meeting of (so-called) militants as “conference”, militants are shown as fighting with each other on minor things. One elderly militant says ‘talk to Delhi, there is no use of bullets’. Another says ‘the power of gun will bring out Khalistan’. The killing of Hindus is then linked with this (meeting). Some militants who thought that such killings were wrong go to assassinate that militant leader but the hero of the movie is shown as lacking capacity to fire the bullet at that leader.

But at the end the militant leader and his elderly adviser are shown as traitors who were ultimately killed by Diljit Dosanjh in the movie.

Actually, no issue is at the focus of the movie. This is an imaginary story that has been named as “Punjab 1984” just to sell it.

This movie defames the militant movement and shows Khalistani characters as a cruel entities. This film should not be confused of having relation to the 1984 trauma of the Sikhs or the Sikh freedom movement.

From film’s point of view Kirron Kher’s part is excellent. She has shown the height of motherly feelings in her role.

why dont these movies every show the role of Indian intelligence services (ie IB and RAW) that fomented the trouble in punjab for a political end goal which is state terrorism against the sikh minority of India.

Why dont they ever show the hindu extremists of various outfits (eg RSS, Nirankaris, Arya Samaj, Bajrang dal and shiv sena) provoking Sikhs by doing sacrilegious events to stir up communal hatred which added fuel to the fire in punjab?

Why dont they show the geo-political games being played at the time with USSR, Israel and UK supplying military weaponry and training and advisor's to the Indian army / govt while the American CIA via Pakistani ISI was supporting the Sikh armed rebellion in Indian punjab and the islamic mujahadeen in 90s Afghanistan to remove soviet Russian influence.

This shows that Sikh film and media industry in sikh homeland of Punjab is not free and films are only shown and passed if they portray the Sikh separatists in poor light and carry the theme of defaming Khalistan movement because if it didn't it would be against the interests of the Indian state.

Watch the movie and make your own minds up.

this could be a ploy in itself to get Sikhs not to watch the movie to avoid learning about other things.

innocent people were killed by Kharku's, on what scale I don't know, but if you think that just because of this the movie should not be seen, you will be waiting for a long time to see a movie, that's amde in india anyway, that will show you 100% of what you want to see.

"militants are shown as fighting with each other on minor things." ahahahha, Well I think that's 100% accurate considering we are talking about Punjabi people. We have beef over a smallest things.

Hear in Canada even the radio station have "club members" and each club hates the other one and try to directly ruin the other clubs shows/events.

Stop spreading indian government false propaganda. No innocent people were killed by Sikh militants, it was the indian govt agents who did that.

Judging from Diljit Dosanjhs dirty music songs I doubt his choice in movies will be any better. I will not be watching. Hopefully he'll learn the message.

So you are saying that Dr Sohan SIngh's panthic committee were indian govt agents?

Do you want to know how gullible our folks are?

BJP MP from Chandigarh is playing main role in this movie and STILL our people thinks that "Oh maybe this is a good movie & might show the truth".

Advani along with former punjab cabinet minister chawla - main bjp leaders led a march in amritsar with a huge banner wording: "Save punjab, send army"

Hopefully some news orgs pick up on this. Will help paint a more clear picture on this whole issue. Will take some time because if the movie was bad it will take some time to reverse the damage and bring a clearer picture as to what the intentions of the movie were.

come on what else did we expect from diljit who for movie promotions keeps stubled dhari are we fool or what didnt u take a look at the promo videos in which he says "nale ena nu vi ta pata lage ki jado KISAN hathyar chak da ya ta ki hunda " now was this an issue of a kisan or the panth by just saying that kisan word he has anhilliated the sole purpose of the whole movement in the movie and moved the whole agenda of the movie to police harassing common individuals the problem is that be it pendu or sheri urban people in punjab are so blind that they rather call them selves jatt jatt jatt than sikh so any jatt mona or kesadhari will go and watch movie to sing his praises any sayana samajdar guru ka singh wouldnt go to watch the movie and fill diljits pockets he is just clearing his image after that song "15 sal to ghat" common mona masses of punjab after that started hating him and after the abusive video he posted on internet related to his fall on stage

the unfortunate is that amrit dhari singhs are promoting his movie standing with movie posters and posting images on insta

    • There are so many different denominations of Christianity but the church is Pentacostalist. I have heard of it, but never knew what it actually is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentecostalism This particular brand of Christianity is not really about the bible, but it seems to be more believing in the spirit of Jesus and uttering words or something and baptisms. I have provided the link, but it would be interesting that other than the money/bribe aspect, what kind of things would entice Punjabis into Pentacostalism. This whispering uttering of certain words and having spirits entering you and excorcising spirits seem to be very popular in Sub-Saharan Africa, sounds very shamanistic. From a Punjabi context, what existing practices would find similarity with this brand of Christianity that Punjabis would be enticed.
    • Well, instead of hiding behind anonymous votes like a bunch of cowards, they should come out and say it straight. Though I suppose these "naa-mard" wouldn't have a problem if this happened to their sister or daughter.  But coming back to the original post, this unfortunately isn't an isolated case. This is why in Afghanistan, Sikh and Hindu girls are married off very young, because there are a fair few in the Muslim majority with a paedophile mindset who would think it's ok to kidnap an underage unmarried non-muslim girl and "marry" her. 
    • Standing up and for ur comrades in arms is also a good quality, that turns to peer pressure and cowardiceness.  But its not only police who are guilty of it. Moh attacks everyone. People will lie to protect their family, their cult, their religion and their brothers in arms.  In fact, thats what happened in panjab during kharkoo (militant) times. If you read Khalistan by cynthia mehmoud, that was the only crime she could find done by sikh seperatists. That one sikh would take bombs into crowded marketplaces to kill hindus, and none of the members of his team condemned him. She asked them if it was wrong to kill innocents, they said yes. But they wouldn't comdemn him. They said he is one of ours, a brother.  Panjabi Sikh people will be the last to support any ideological movement. Because they have suffered from ideology alot. First in 1947, they were promised a  better nation, just for sikhs. And how many innocent sikhs got butchered? Then in 1984 to 1995, while the kharkhoos and rebels enjoyed glorius shaheedis, it was the common folk who suffered dehydration, curfews, torture, army rule, becoming orphans and a loss of economy. Most sikhs at heart are secularist and scared stiff of religious ideologues who can ignite another doomed revolution and entice their children to early death.  That is why most sikh people judge movements by their effect on the common people not their ideology. It doesnt matter what equalities are promised,.what wrongs will be righted, look at the actions. So to sikhs, BLM is terrible. It comes for their  businesses and livelihood. And one cant even try to defend against the looters:  https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ Thats the general panjabi thought about BLM. Heres mine: i support Black Lives Matter Too. That was the original name by the founders. I think it makes a lot more sense. Also im after the truth, but between the nbc and cbc whitewashing and fox news fearmongering, its hard to know whats true. I dont want to be lead by the mainstream media which is supporting ppl like biden, using all this unrest to paint trump bad. Its been wrong about the russian fraud, to trump impeachement to so many things. They have been calling the protest peaceful. Big games are afoot and i dont want to be a pawn. First the media was like social distancing. Shut down gurudware and churches. Then they allow and encourage ppl to attend these huge protests.which even though they included looting and burning were called peaceful. They wont condemn anything, even though many videos show black people angry cuz their kids got shot and killed, their businesses looted. One one sided narrative is being pushed and of anyone even criticizes a little bit they are canceled with shouts of racism.  So while i support BLMT, i wont let that turn me into a passive bystander. Its not only the end that matters, its also the means to get there.  Anyone can commit crimes under a movement, so be vigilant. A protest can easily be turned into a mob. And a mob is dangerous especially if it inevitably goes to loot rich places. As sikhs are rich, and have businesses and big houses, they can be a target. As the koreans were in LA riots. Nobody supported the koreans. The media and artists celebrated the rioters. But the koreans who had to defend their homes and stores with guns were all alone during the riots and the damages too. Also the rodney king riots, did they solve anything?  Will these protests? In the beginning BLM was smart. They knew doing peaceful protests werent gonna do anything. Ppl and governmwnts only pay attention when property is involved. So they were smart, they tartgeted police departments, governemnt buildings.and even big stores were ok.  And in war and big movements sometimes bystanders get hurt. I mean it was the sikhs tweeting 17 better 10,000 in support of rajoana. That the 17 bystanders killed in suicide bombing by rajoana was good because the guy who was killed wouldve killed many more sikhs. So i understand if some innocents get killed or some sikh businesses looted. What i dont like about BLM is thats its becoming cult like. The media wont report anything true about riots vs peaceful protests or anything negative, and if anyone is critical they are canceled. These are not just fox news talking points i have noticed it. Shutting down disagreements, hiding the truth is leading to propaganda and authoritarianism. That is more worrisome than racism.
