Punjabi film "Ik Onkar" The Revolution which was lined up for release on 3rd November earlier has now been banned by the censor board and here's why...
As the title itself carries the message of oneness and a fact that one should lead his or her life according to the teachings of Gurbani, the film got butchered by the censor board for being too bold and upfront. Or it can rightly be said that 'Ik Onkar' The Revolution paid the price for showing a plot that was too honest and close to reality. Made under the banner of Nanak Films International, this religious film has been directed by Aviral Raj Sharma and produced by Talwinder Singh "Musafer".
Banned in India, the film will see an overseas release on 10th November 2017.
The star cast includes Shavinder Mahal, Sukhdeep Singh and Harpreet Singh Pita in pivotal roles and as the female lead Megha Sharma holds the baton. "Ik Onkar' The Revolution throws light on a few dark pages of Punjab and the storyline aims to awaken young minds to stand strong against the notorious factors of society. It also showcases the outrageous courage of a Sikh young man who raises his voice against the evils.
The director of the film Aviral Raj Sharma said, “Directing this film was a challenge for me as when you are directing a film which holds religious values you should be clear with facts. Though we also tried to sensitise people,especially the youth to come forward and fight to make the society worth living but now it’s saddening and disturbing to face a ban because we had all put our heart and soul in this movie.”
The producer of the film Talwinder Singh "Musafer" said, “We have put in a lot of efforts in this film and shown the reality that prevails today and now we are facing a ban on this. It’s disturbing and we will fight for it and make sure this movie will be served to audience.”
The executive producers of the film are Harsimran Kaur and Satbir Singh Rathore. The music is given by Daler Mehndi, Sukhshinder Singh Shinda, Vikram N Vikram and Sarabjeet Singh Marwaha. The soundtracks are penned by Jhalman Singh Tanda, Jags Minor and Baljeet Noor, which will be released under Yellow Music. It will be distributed worldwide by Globe Moviez Pvt Ltd.
