Muslim woman’s review of Film Chaar Sahibzaade
“So, I’ve finished watching Chaar Sahibzade…and as promised here are my thoughts.
“I’m Muslim. I’m British-Pakistani. I didn’t watch this movie because of religious reasons. I didn’t watch this movie because of the hype. I watched it because I fell in love with the passion surrounding it. After watching the trailer, I fell in love with the characters. The script…and above all, the story. At times it made me laugh. At times it made me cry and at times it left me heartbroken. But I’m a firm believer that there are certain things that actually support the world; the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave. And this movie had all of those. I’m very fortune that, from a very early age, my parents taught me the difference between right and wrong. My faith teaches me that the best of mankind are those who have the most benefit to mankind…and that is what I found in this movie. Sikh history is relatively short in the scope of history, yet incredibly rich and powerful, full of stories of sacrifice and unending faith. However, the deep emotional chronicles of the story is depicted in a manner which is accessible to all ages, faiths and cultures to understand.
Obviously, there are certain aspects of the movie which need improving, but these are all visual aspects. Altogether though, after watching the film, the lessons of truth, morale and humanity are deeply embedded into each scene, principles which I have always abided by, and was today reminded of. Take a bow Dharam Seva Records, you’ve done your religion proud.ChaarSahibzade ”
