5 must watch films from the SikhNet Film Festival. We encourage everyone to watch all the films available at Sikhnet website.
The quality of Films in this year’s Sikhnet Film Festival is superb. From So Many Great Films to Choose From, Here are 5 Editor Picks
Savaaya: This story is about how the Sikhs even in their hard times did not give up on the values taught to them by their Gurus which were – to stay in “Chardhikala” at all times and doing “Shukrana” for whatever “AKALPURAKH” has bestowed upon us.
It teaches us that with courage and sacrifice we can face any dire
Gurmukh: Anybody can help. Anybody can bring change. We don’t need to be God’s angels to help our people in need. We just need to be human.
And a human with a helping heart, is Godly. When we trust , God comes to rescue in form of such humans. This is true story of my great grandfather Gurmukh Singh, whose faith in Almighty saved the life of my grandfather, through mystic circumstances.
Kaafir: Short Film is based on a true story. I think, We have to explain it very well why we’ve used a question mark after the word kaafir. Our film is based on the “Seva” theme and we’ve added some more detail and social issues.
What we’re trying to show is that :
1) Akaal Purakh Ik Hai. So, Kise insaan nu “doosra dharam” wale naam to na janeya jave.
2) What is the real mean of “Seva”?
3) Dharma Granthan vich Jo Likheya Hai.. Ki Follow Ho Raha Hai?
4) Tusi Har Jeev Cho Malik De Didar Karonge Ta Samjh Lena Ke Tusi Akaal Purakh Nu Apna Rahe Ho.
5) Dharam Pyaar Sikhaunda Hai, Na Ke Nafrat.
6) Asi Dikhana Chah Rahe Haan Ke, Pyaar Kise Vi Tarah Ki Nafrat Nu Khattam Karke Pyaar Te Os Malik De Raste Le Janda Hai.
Example: The story of the film is based on the real events. We often meet people who are living a bad lifestyle by following the bad examples as their guide for life and we rarely meet people who are not only following the good examples, but are also implying those in their real lives as well.
Our characters of the film are based on such people from Sikh family who choose their lifestyle by following the pious examples; such as turban, kadda and more symbols associated with the Sikh Religion.
An Afternoon Saga: This story is an inspiration from a similar kind of real life happening. It is an afternoon, when a Middle Class Sikh man is working very hard outside preparing the snacks when suddenly some guys enter and try to provoke him and how the man reacts to the situation.
