Kambdi Kalaai

May 6, 2006

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Today at the Silat Road Gurudawara I watched the screening of Kambdi Kalai .

I must say it was a very well made movie and is a first of its kind. A lot of Sikh movies have been made with a religious background, not thing wrong with that. However, we needed one about our culture – The Sikh culture.

Kambdi Kalai- a tribute to Bhai Veer Singh ji did very well in addressing the kind of problems the youth of today face. Issues about our roop, issues relating with our identity as Sikhs and citizens of a country,sardar jokes,12 O clock jokes, the events of 1984.

In addition, the movie took a very clear stand that a Sikh must have his roop, this stand was very well explained as well. Also they showed how people from different communities showed interest and studied Sikhism in depth. As a result of that they valued and appreciated the teachings of our Gurus more than some of our own people.

  1. Wahe Guru Jee ka Khalsa,
    Wahe Guru Jee Ki Fateh,

    With Waheguru’s grace I had the oppertunity to work in this Movie as the lead. I played Gurmukh. I had a wonderful time while making this film. Even though this is very new to me, the director, Ish Amitoj guided me along the whole process to make it as easy as possible for me. This film discusses many issues we feel should be brought out in the open. It is the very first film to take on the entire bollywood industry in terms of how they treat sikhs. Also the first film to have a Puran Gursikh to play the lead. I feel blessed to have been a part of it. I look forward to your comments or questions. My email address is: Parm2003@yahoo.com
