The Punjabi-language film Bajre Da Sitta, starring Ammy Virk and Tania, is set to be released in theatres on 15 July. The period drama, whose title is the same as a famous Punjabi folk song, traces the journey of two young women who yearn to sing.

The drama goes back in time to when it was considered disreputable for girls of good families to engage in the performing arts and music. The story is that of two sisters, played by Tania and Noor Chahal, who have mellifluous voices.

A record label owner ‘discovers’ their voice and wishes to have the two of them sing for his label and thus, their musical journey begins. However, their fame also brings trouble as they seem to become subjects of gossip and slander amongst people in the village.

Virk and Tania play a couple in love with each other. Notwithstanding, Virk is determined to not allow his wife to sing after they get married. In one scene in the trailer, he even warns her that if she sings again, she will be left at her parents’ home.

Bajre Da Sitta seems to foreground the desire of women to follow their dreams, a wish that more often than not was thwarted by patriarchy. With a rustic setting evoking the days of yore, the film’s trailer takes us back to the olden times of gramophone records. 

Written and directed by Jass Grewal, the film also stars Nirmal Rishi, BN Sharma, Hobby Dhaliwal and Seema Kaushal.
