Ik Kudi Punjab Di is a 2010 Punjabi film directed by Manmohan Singh with story and screenplay by Singh and dialogues by Rana Ranbir. The film is produced by Singh and Ratan Bhatia and stars Amrinder Gill, Jaspinder Cheema, Aman Dhaliwal, Gugu Gill, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Rana Ranbir, and Kimi Verma.
Ik Kudi Punjab Di released on 17 September 2010 globally. It was keenly awaited due to reasons like its theme, lead actor Amrinder Gill and the director. The director/writer/producer has attempted a very new and unique concept of drama/theatre in Ik Kudi Punjab Di which is not done much in Punjabi cinema.
Ik Kudi Punjab Di tells a richly textured tale from a keenly female perspective set against the backdrop of male-dominated Punjabi society. It does so with a Shakespearean credo of “all the world’s a stage” and a lively cast.
SP Singh (Amrinder Gill) is a boy from a wealthy family who meets Navdeep (Jaspinder Cheema), the girl of his dreams, at his college drama class. They quickly bond, much to the chagrin of bad-boy student Vicky (Aman Dhaliwal) who prizes Navdeep for himself.
The male-chauvinist Vicky has no chance with the progressive-minded Navdeep. Even Singh, the man who she admires enough to call a friend, is in for a shock. Navdeep doesn’t want to get married; she’s intent on being the guardian of her loving parents because the family lacks a male heir.
Singh tests his own view of women by agreeing to all of Navdeep’s demands, including becoming a ghar jamai. This is seen as both revolutionary (by her classmates) and an affront to Punjabi society and tradition.
