Reflection on Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe

Eh Janam Tumhare LekhePunjabi Cinema has suddenly grown some guts. After too much of comedy, we are now seeing the arrival of serious films. Punjab 1984, Char Shahibzaade and Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe are the films which will lead this new era of sensibility. Not to forget the soon to be released Nanak Shah Fakir, which is to be an epic saga on entirely different plain of movie making.

Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe is a biopic concentrating on summarizing the life and times of Bhagat Puran Singh ji, founder of Pingalwara Society. While doing so the respected director

Harjit Singh has given a gift of novel movie making to Punjabi Cinema. In all realms of reality, this is a film worth a lot of praise and this is the reason why I’m writing this. The purpose of these words that you are reading is to urge you to go and watch this film.

Go watch it for it will inspire you, it will make you think, to reflect and maybe change you in a small way. The life, struggle, fight and determination of Bhagat Puran Singh ji is something we should teach our children. They should know about the goodness of human heart and what it can achieve if it’s committed. I didn’t know about the story and that’s why I’m hearty indebted to the Pingalwara society for adapting to the medium of cinema and commissioning this movie.

Apart from the emotional content, aspiring movie makers should go and watch this movie for its refined technicalities. There are certain glitches, but I won’t pass judgment considering it’s a biopic and I can’t think a way of making it better than what it is now.

Pawan Malhotra’s acting, dialogue delivery and body language will be a glimpse into the world of acting for many. This is how you act out a character. And when you have tears in your eyes while watching him caring for the unfortunate ones, remind yourself, that he is the same actor who was beating Shiva’s mother in Punjab 1984 and how you hated him.

To end this write-up, I will again urge you dear reader, go and watch this biopic and be elated. While our education system is hell bent on removing Sikh and Punjab history from the school curriculums, attempts like this will forever document the shining moments of our past.
