Anyway, you are making an navie assumptions that a person who does not like punjabi movies/songs are too much westernized or feel inferior than white. People watch movies/tv based on the type of art they like or how their social culture/lifestyle looks like. I don't like hilly billy type of fake movies based on nothing. At same time i don't like ghetto type fast and furious or cheesy movies like la la land etc etc..

I hear that. I don't watch Panjabi films, because I don't like all the casteism that gets promoted within and often feel it is quite shallow. 

I love arts that is brave, intelligent and has a good social message. One Panjabi film I partially watched recently was that Udta Punjab. I couldn't get all the way through (got over half way). I liked the style and message, but I HATE musicals and when that Jazzy B type character came up, I struggled to suffer it. 

But that doesn't mean I don't love aspects of Panjabi culture, and Sikh culture in general.

I think that some of the Hollywood films should be dubbed into Punjabi.

My nephew said he saw that Die Hard in Punjabi in a cinema back home years ago, he said it was hilarious. Yeah, we should have more of that.

I like films that have intelligent social observations within, Panjabi films that I've seem don't seem to have that.

I think most of Stephen King's books have been turned into movies. 

I wonder if there is any Punjabi literature can be turned into movies.

I haven't read any but apparently Punjabi literature from the 50s 60s, 70s etc is really good    the genre for most is realism   books like chita lahu,  mari da diva, kothe kharak singh etc   mari da diva was made into a movie  iv seen it  it stars raj babbar  was a gd movie 

amrita pritams pinjar was made into a hindi movie   was a gd movie!   

anhe ghore da dhaan was based on a novel of the same name.   very unusual movie and very realistic   its about the depressing state of people in punjab  especially the mazbhis

Not really westernized and very much in touch with original punjabi and sikh culture. We have strict punjabi speaking only rule in my house & six year old can write punjabi well. Anyway, you are making an navie assumptions that a person who does not like punjabi movies/songs are too much westernized or feel inferior than white. People watch movies/tv based on the type of art they like or how their social culture/lifestyle looks like. I don't like hilly billy type of fake movies based on nothing.

Jaswinder bhalla and other old real actor folks are bygone age and they are mostly in movies as grade B/C type supporting actors ? Punjabi movies are made to please the punjabi majority and they are into - cars, materialistic world of show off, go abroad, get kuri, fake ego of culture etc etc. 

Btw, i find harry potter type movies -- okayish but not my style. 

You sound like the kind of guy with his head firmly screwed on. You also dont like Punjabi movies but like English ones. 

Thats why from now on im going to call you Harry Putar.

As you would make a good Punjabi version of Harry Potter. 

Im not saying Punjabi movie industry is perfect. Its far from it. But lets face it our lot a big time movie watchers so might aswell watch punjabi instead of hindi.

The Punjabi classic and poetry are the best and unmatchable with anyone. 

There is a netflix movie on the making of indian cinema "Harishchandra factory" which is very good. 
Staying up with its own culture and tradition is the way for the movies to make sense.

Indian cinema trying to copy western style does not make sense and thus no interest. Older versions were product of their own country.

I think you are taking it in a wrong way and taking it personal for some reason. I am not saying that you are stupid or anything if you are watching punjabi or indian movie. Just saying that everyone has different taste based on their own reasoning. Lets stay civil when interacting with anyone here my brother/sister. 🙏

Not all Punjabi movies are as you described. There are some good ones with meaningful plots and storylines. But if you don't like watching Punjabi movies then that is your choice. Continue to watch your English movies such as Hari putar or potter as he is known in the west.

Hindi movies r so repetitive nd filthy.

i pray punjabi entertainment retains its dignity in the coming years.

sache paatsha sare good insaan nu mer karo

Bollywood is all about promoting hindi do language and religion. 

So many of fillable Sikhs watch these movies and get negatively influenced. 

Hindu actress are a discrace. Marrying khan's and converting.

That was cool man!

I've never seen a Panjabi film like that. I liked the atmospheric filmography. 

I got to say, I found parts hard to understand because of the thick accents. One thing I've realised is that the Panjabi I heard growing up was much more enunciated than this. 

I could get into this type of stuff.

I've got to add: a lot of the brickwork I see in from back is absolutely appalling (to put it mildly), which is surprising because I've seen loads of badass apnay brickies over here?!!??!

Chauti koot is by the same director 

I understood most of it apart from a few words. The movie is set in batinda so the dialect is malwai punjabi   

Lol a lot of the old areas in the pinds and cities have walls looking like that. The older they get the more they start leaning sideways lol    we have one outside my nanke house and it's so old and wonky and leaning side ways now lol.  A lot of the old abandoned houses look like that.

We never find out where the girl was going at night   I reckon she was gnna commit suicide. In fact we never know what the characters are doing.

Iv walked around in the pind at  night (not a good idea) and it looks just like that! It can be scary!  Really dark, misty, dogs howling, owls hooting. Especially in winter.

Maybe because you have become so westernised. That Punjabi language films don't interest you? Its easy to lose touch with your own culture while growing up in western countries. 

That's not necessarily the case. If you have a strong Punjabi base, you read Punjabi literature in addition to Gurbani, you read Punjabi non-fiction like books and newspapers, watch Punjabi-language news and you listen to katha, I don't think you need to watch Punjabi movies.

However, if you do none of those things, then Punjabi movies are a good starting-off point.

    • What I have quoted is from an Albanian Orthodox guy I know of. There is a lot of crisis in Christian circles.  If anything, they are in a bigger mess than us Sikhs. 
    • I understand.  Next I am in Punjab, I will also will start to observe.  
    • Get some therapy or professional help to work through your feelings about your wife's unfortunate passing. This forum won't provide you with the help you need. We are neither scholars, doctors, nor holy men. You're beginning to verge on being offensive, and I'm sure that's not your intention. A public forum is not the place for whatever it is you require. If you continue to persist with making digs at Sikhi using a tragic event as a shield to prevent being criticized, I can only theorise that you're a troll. You've been given the benefit of the doubt for a considerable amount of time, but I can only speak for myself when I say your behaviour is ringing alarm bells. Any thinking person undergoes a crisis of faith when something unforeseen occurs in their life, especially if that person seemingly "played by the rules" and fulfilled the end of their bargain in the game of life. But that unfortunately is the haphazard, cruel reality of life. Bad things happen to good people, and there's nothing to be done about it. Justify it, seek a reason for why such a thing happened, but it doesn't erase the act itself. So, eventually one can either succumb to self-pity and wallow in grief indefinitely, or a person can decide to dust themselves off and try to make a bad situation a little better.  I speak from experience. I'm not a cold, unfeeling tyrant. I, too, have gone through tragedy after tragedy in my relatively short life, but I would never share the details on here. To stop myself from going crazy, I stopped blaming religion and stopped concerning myself with my past life shenanigans, and focused on making THIS life the best that it can be. Ultimately, that's the only solution to making your remaining time bearable.
    • What are you even talking about? Are you high? How is "Sikhi", an abstract noun, concerned with poster Redoptics?
