Movie Review: 'Udta Punjab' is a film where all emotions are put together intelligently

There's a lot that has been said about Udta Punjab. But amidst speculation and controversy, the film lives up beautifully to our expectations. Udta Punjab revolves around four characters: Tommy Singh (Shahid Kapoor) who is a rockstar addicted to drugs, a Bihari migrant girl (Alia Bhatt) who also gets addicted to drugs, and a police officer (Diljit Dosanjh) and a doctor (Kareena Kapoor) who are both fighting the war against the use of drugs.

There are all sorts of emotions in Udta Punjab. There are intense violence scenes with blood spilling all over and people getting killed but everything is put together intelligently.

If you were thinking of downloading the torrent and watching it, don't. Watch this review instead, and then go to the theatre to watch the movie.
