The concept of an animated movie is not a new one in the Punjabi movie industry. We all are aware about the magic created by ‘Chaar Sahibzaade’ in the Punjabi film industry. Reciting a religious or a historic story in an animated manner comes in handy because animation is liked by all sections of the society. Children, per se, can be taught about our history in the best possible manner through an animation.
‘Guru Da Banda’, a movie on Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, is next in line in the genre of animated Punjabi movies. The movie will release on August 24. The trailer of the movie was released on the day before yesterday on the official YouTube channel of Lokdhun Punjabi. At the time of writing this article, it has received in vicinity of one million views on the same platform.
At a tender age of 15, Banda Singh Bahadur left home in a bid to practice asceticism. He was given the name ‘Madho Das’ at that point in time. Born as Lachman Dev, it was Guru Gobind Singh who gave him the title ‘Banda Singh Bahadur’. He was a Sikh military commander who established a Sikh state with capital at Lohgarh (Haryana).
His first major action was the sacking of the Mughal provincial capital. After establishing his authority in, Banda Singh Bahadur abolished the zamindari system, and granted property rights to the tillers of the land.
Guru Da Banda is directed by Jassi Chana. The research, script, screenplay and dialogues have been written by Satnam Chana. Daler Mehandi, a legendary singer of our nation, has sung the title song of the movie which will be released shortly. Pritam Film Production Pvt. Ltd. have worked on the animation in the movie which in the trailer seems above par. Whether it will appear satisfactory on the big screen will only be known after watching the movie.
Omjee Group, a prominent name in the field of distributing movies in the nation, has been given the responsibility of distributing Guru Da Banda across the globe. With Omjee Group on board with the makers, we can expect the reach of this movie increasing manifold times. Most recently, they were associated with movies like ‘Harjeeta’ and ‘Vadhayiyaan Ji Vadhayiyaan’.
