Description

The first Punjabi art-house film this is a melodrama about feudalism, based on a popular novel by Gurdial Singh. The story chronicles the shift from feudal sharecropping to capitalist farming over two generations of the region's rural elite. Jasbir, the son of the sharecropper, Thola, is treated as a brother by the landlord Dharam Singh. The landlord's son, however, does not continue this family tradition. As Jasbir's mother belongs to a nomad caste, the hero's love for the bride of the impotent bride Nika is fraught with problems. Symbolically, the building of Jasbir's father's tomb and then of his own tomb hastens Jasbir's physical deterioration and death.
