Udta Punjab is made up with the concept of drugs mafia in Punjab.  Censor Board members gave many cuts to this movie but movie unit denies their decision and went to Punjab and Haryana high courts and supreme court too. Another sad incident is that 40 minutes of the movie got released in Net before its release. Let's see how the movie is..

Story :
Tommy Singh (Shahid Kapoor) became a rock star that he never expected the same. Punjabi youth goes mad if he is in stage but he addicted with drugs and without drugs he won't take Mike also. By taking Tommy as inspiration many youth became addicted to these drugs, how much this impact will be is at least one person from every house will addict to those drugs. But after some days Tommy came to know the side effects of using drugs Pinky(Alia bhatt) is a poor girl from a bihar family. She loves hockey and she wants to be in good stage in that game. But unfortunate death of her father made them move to Punjab for food. She will works as a daily wager in fields and one day she tasted the drugs found in that field. Because of that incident she went into drug mafia hands and they enters heroin in pinky body and spoiled her life.

Preeth (Kareena kapoor) is a doctor who is doing treatment to them who got addicted to drugs . She ran a clinic to save them. Sartaj Singh (
Diljit Dosanjh) is a crime police who always supports drug mafia. He will cross the drugs from check posts if any one give him money. But he came to know that his brother addicted to that drugs and he stopped supporting drug mafia anymore. How all this four do against drug mafia and how they saved themselves from mafia like questions you can find answers in the big screen only.

Director showed us that how the impact of drugs on youth and how pharmacy companies doing this business in a understandable manner. Glamour girl alia butt for the first time she played a De glamour role in this movie. Maximum story revolves around pinky (Alia bhatt) only. As a worker in fields and a slave in mafia pinky rocked with her performance. Some funny elements by shahid are OK. Dual meaning words are very high in this movie and makes audience uncomfortable.

In first half itself this kind of words used by actors is high in number. Before the movie release many people said that quarrels will happen but there is no such big controversial scenes in this movie.

* Story

Final Verdict :
Commercial and Message oriented movie.
