Jalandhar, July 15

An upcoming film depicting the aftermaths of the 1984 Sikh riots, ‘Kaun Kare Insaf’, is set to hit the screens on September 25 in countries with Punjabi population, including the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and Europe.

The film has been jointly produced by the Australian-based production company, Raj Mahal Production and Satluj Films. It has been recently given an ‘A’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification in India.

Addressing mediapersons here today, Baljit Singh, director of the film, said: “The movie is about a girl whose kin have been murdered in 1984 in front of her when she was a kid. She returns to her maternal parents’ home in Punjab where she completes her studies. Yet, the incident always haunts her. She has so many questions in her mind, which she wants to be answered.”

Baljit said the film raises a question that what would happen if/when people start feeling that they won’t get justice any more.

He said the film had been made in two languages – Punjabi and Hindi – so that people from outside Punjab could also understand it.

“It doesn’t depict any Hindu-Sikh foe, but how people with a criminal mentality in the political system disturb peace in any country,” Baljit said.
