one of few master-pieces in Punjabi Industry!! excellent!!
13 September 2015 | by hemantkhanna97See all my reviews

i am not a big fan of Punjabi movies.I mean they at present,are all about silly comedy over the top punch lines with messy story lines."Ucha Dar babe Nanak DA" and "Chann Pardesi" are two of the few movies i consider as two of the best efforts made in contribution to classic cinema. Sikandar is the third one for me. (don't expect any cheap jokes or over the top comedy from this wonderful movie!!) This kind of movie has never been even attempted due to audience' taste. excellent screenplay,Shaky cameras and the dialogs actually hit me because i live in Punjab too.I live in Malva region.I am familiar to the dialogs like "saade Alia" and "ehnu Koda Hona Kende AA" Definitely inspired by Anurag Kashyap's directorial style(actors not knowing where the camera is) is what is the soul of the movie. How the system controls the hot blood of the Punjabi's and its harm in their lives is well shown by its gripping storyline. Gul Panag gives justice to her role and Kartar Cheema has a pure determined screen presence when he faces the camera. the whole caste and crew did a superb job. The narration by Om Puri to an Indian movie is exactly what the narration by Morgan Freeman to a Hollywood movie is. I apologize for not even writing some of the superb actors because i don't know their name. i am waiting for more works like this from each and every member who contributed to this movie. go for it Master piece!!!
