After the censor board controversies and final intervention of the Bombay Court, Indian movie "Udta Punjab" made its way to the big screens on June 17, 2016.

The film has opened to packed houses all around the nation, but in Punjab, things were different, as the Shiv Sena conducted protests in front of many theaters across the state.

Many people in the state complained about the way in which their youths have been portrayed in the film, while some others claimed that the film is portraying a harsh reality.

The makers have appealed all not to watch the leaked pirated copy.

Initial reports coming out from screens in other parts of India clearly conveys that this film will emerge as a Blockbuster; thanks to some excellent performances from Alea and Daljit. 

The lead performers in the flick, Shahid, and Kareana Kapur have also done their roles well, but they have been overshadowed by the screen presence of Bhat and Diljit.

Diljit Dosenjh's showcasing of the corrupt cop is stunning, so as Alia, who did the character of the laborer.

The mental trauma Alia goes through has been depicted well by the filmmaker, and this uncompromising cinematic language is the major highlight of this flick.

This outing is against drugs, and it explicitly asks us not to try it even once in life. 

So, why the CBFC was opposing it? Only God knows the answer.

"Udta Punjab" is not a great movie, and it has many defects in it. But the intention of making the movie is good, and as a result, Abhishek deserves a wide round of applause for this effort.
