Punjabi movies help to keep the traditions and values of Punjabi culture alive. With the community that loves cinema and TV, and where still many people unfortunately can not read, the movies become the stories that unite the community. This type of entertainment helps to develop the community as well. Unfortunately there are not so many Punjabi movies made as in some other branches of Indian cinema, like Bollywood, Tamil, Kannada or Malayalam cinema industry manage to produce. Still there are some very great films. One important factor of the movies in India is that they do gift the audience also with amazing music. Many popular Punjabi songs come from the movies as well. punjabi song download
Some of the ever best Punjabi movies are Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai, Chan Pardesi, Hashar… A love story, Mannat and Des Hoyaa Pardes. Of course there are some more, but I would like to highlight a few of them here. Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai is from the end of 1960s – it is a religious movie that is presenting an important Sikh culture festival. Punjabi songs from that movie are devotional and still loved by so many in Punjab today. A song Mere Sahib Mere Sahib is magical really.
Hashar… A love story is one of the new Punjabi movies. It was released in 2008. Again one of the reasons why this movie is so loved, is thanks to the great Punjabi songs. One of the current big stars of Punjabi music, Babbu Mann is singing Aaj din hashar da kal main nai rehna in this film.
