The story of “Udta Punjab” is about four characters — a rock star (Shahid Kapoor), a migrant laborer (Alia Bhatt), a doctor (Kareena Kapoor) and a policeman (Diljit Dosanjh). All these four lives, from different walks of life, are fighting the menace of drugs in their own way.

The audience is giving their verdict. Tweets flew across the Internet:

“Woww what a movie after looonng with overwhelming performances taking you to level (sic)

The movie is realistic and despite the minor flaws deserving of your time. It explores the highs and the lows with equal flourish.

It is also high on abusive language.

Out of 52 Fridays in a year, very rarely(sic) you come across a movie like‪#UdtaPunjab. Don’t miss it.”

The critics seem to agree:

“Abhishek Chaubey has done brilliant work in scripting the film, and has an amazing grip over the narration of the story. He portrays a serious issue in an entertaining way.

Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh have delivered brilliant performances, which is the highlight of “Udta Punjab.”

The movie has been produced by Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor under their banners Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films.
