List of Sikh films

  • Sikh Religious Films by Guru Nanak Daata Baksh Lai Mission These deeply religious films on Sikh Religion have been humbly offered at the Lotus Feet of Beloved Sikh Gurus by Brig. Partap Singh Ji Jaspal (Retd.). Each film covers a specific religious subject like Martyrdom (Shahadat), Humility (Nimarta), Divine Love (Prema), True Service (Sewa), Creation of The Khalsa etc. There are also films dedicated entirely to the famous Centenaries celebrated by the Sikh Panth.
  • Sundri the movie is the third movie by Vismaad Pte Ltd, a Singapore based computer animation company. The film is based on a novel by the same name - Sundri by the famous Punjabi writer, Bhai Vir Singh (1872-1957). This movie like the other two previous ones is a high resolution 2D computer animation with stereo sound and will be available as a DVD and also for theatrical release which are scheduled from May 08.
  • The Sahibzadey A saga of Valor & Sacrifice is the first 2D animated movie on Sikh History. Through this animated movie we have attempted to relive the beyond compare martyrdom of Baba Zorawar Singh ji and Baba Fateh Singh ji. Utmost care is taken in creating character figures for the revered Sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji.
  • The rise of Khalsa In the entire Sikh history, the account of Banda Singh Bahadur has remained an enigmatic phenomenon for the historians. Most scholars have not been able to perceive how an illustrious Bairagi (ascetic) engaged in exercise of occult powers became a True Khalsa after a short but fateful meeting with Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
  • Films from the SikhNet Youth Online Film Festival 2008 The Third Annual SikhNet young filmmaker's competition for Sikh Youth is designed to encourage and inspire our youth to get involved in media and video and use their creativity to produce interesting and inspiring short films filled with the spirit of Sikhi. This year we are continuing to have a Senior Division as well so that filmakers older than 25 are able to participate.
  • Singh is Kinng Singh is Kinng the movie starring lead actor Akshay Kumar as "Happy Singh" and actress Katrina Kaif as "Sonia". The film had its worldwide release on August 8, 2008. The film portrays Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar) as an accident prone Sikh living in a village in Punjab. Although he is shown as a sahajdhari Sikh, he displays some very positive core Sikhi values like being helpful to others and respecting the words of the Sikh Gurus. However as a clumsy individual, although meaning no harm or malice towards anyone, in most instances, he ends up causing more damage than benefit!
  • Heroes (film) Bollywood is doing it again – another movie with Sikhs. But instead of what we have seen in the past with Sikhs often portrayed as unflattering villains and goofballs, it seems that the trend now is to cast people in Sikhs roles where the Sikhs are the heroes. I suppose it is partly in that spirit that the movie is called “Heroes.” Heroes is about two friends who journey through India meeting everyday heroes, at least one of whom is a Sikh.
  • Amu (The Film) is the journey of Kajori Roy (Konkona Sen Sharma), a 21-year-old Indian American woman who has lived in the US since the age of 3. After graduating from UCLA Kaju goes to India to visit her relatives. There she meets Kabir (Ankur Khanna), a college student from an upper class family who is disdainful of Kaju’s wide-eyed wonder at discovering the “real India”. Undeterred Kaju visits the slums, crowded markets and roadside cafes of Delhi. In one slum she is struck by an odd feeling of déjà vu. Soon after she starts having nightmares. Kabir gets drawn into the mystery of why this is happening particularly when he discovers that she is adopted.
  • Anokhe Amar Shaheed Baba Deep Singh A film based on the legendary Baba Deep Singh who gave his life while attempting to protect the Golden Temple from a vastly superior number of Afghans. The film portrays two major battles of Baba Deep Singh, who with his Sikh soldiers, warded off Ahmed Shah Abdali’s attempts to take looted gold, silver and jewellery and about 33,000 Hindu and Muslim girls back to Afghanistan.
  • Jo Bole So Nihaal (also transliterated Jo Bole So Nihal; meaning "Blessed is the One") is a 2005 Indian film starring Sunny Deol and Kamaal Khan. The film's release was met by protests from Sikh groups, who took offense at its use of a Sikh religious phrase as its title, as well as scenes in which a Sikh police officer is shown being chased by scantily-clad women. Two terrorist attacks on May 22, 2005 on theatres in New Delhi showing the film killed one person and injured 49, prompting cinema owners to pull the film, in some cases voluntarily and in some states as a result of a government order.
  • Adharm is the name of an Indian Bollywood film directed by Adeep Singh released in 2006. It is based on the real-life Chittisinghpura massacre. The film is based on the real-life events of the Chittisinghpura massacre on March 20, 2000, in which 37 Sikhs were massacred by Islamic Fundamentalists in Kashmir. The film revolves around two Sikh brothers, Kuldeep [played by Rahum Dev] and Jaideep [played by Rocky Khanna] whose parents were among the victims of the massacre. They migrate to Mumbai. The film contrasts the various ideological and religious movement in India that have extremist views, from Islamic Fundamentalism to Hindu Nationalism, which are often pitted against each other as adversaries. The film revolves around those Muslims who tacitly support Pakistan despite their residing in India.
  • Hawayein (Punjabi: ਹਵਾਝਂ) (Hindi: हवायें ) is a 2003 Bollywood film, directed by Ammtoje Mann. The movie stars Babbu Mann, Ammtoje Mann. The Tagline of movie was Some winds don’t blow… Yet take away everything. Hawayein (winds) change but the scars of history remain- is a film which emerges from the consequences of the BlueStar operation & is based on the aftermath of Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s assassination- the Riots in Delhi & other places in India & the subsequent victimization of the people in Punjab in the years that followed.
  • Ocean Of Pearls is a Hollywood movie in which a Sikh man with a full beard and turban, AMRIT SINGH is often the target of racial profiling. But when he sees his dreams of becoming Chief of Surgery at a state-of-the-art transplant center dwindle because of his appearance, Amrit goes against a tradition he's maintained his whole life and cuts his hair. Hiding this decision from his girlfriend and family in Toronto is only the start of a series of compromises Amrit finds himself making as he deals with hospital politics and health care injustices. When his compromises result in the death of a patient, Amrit begins to reexamine the value of the religious traditions he'd turned his back on.

Amar Khalsa is set during the period 1716 to 1783, among the bloodiest periods of the Sikh history. The policy of Mughal rulers was total extinction of Sikhs. Among the most tyrants was Mir Mannu, Governor of Lahore in 1748. Sikhs faced worst onslaught at the hands of Mir Mannu and his men. Sikhs had to leave comforts of their homes and face hardships in jungles, hills and deserts. Moving military columns were sent to hunt them down. Rewards were announced for those who brought Sikhs dead or alive.

When there were no more Sikhs in the homes, Mir Mannu ordered his forces to seize Sikh women and children. He gave them the choice to give up their faith or face cruel- inhuman tortures and death. But none could be wavered form their steadfast faith and love for Sikhi. Women were starved, their children cut into pieces before them and placed in their laps. Brave mothers saw their infants killed and hung on spear points. It is believed that 250,000 Sikh men & women, young, old and children were killed during Mir Manu’s reign....

In the entire Sikh history, the account of Banda Singh Bahadur has remained an enigmatic phenomenon for the historians. Most scholars have not been able to perceive how an illustrious Bairagi (ascetic) engaged in exercise of occult powers became a True Khalsa after a short but fateful meeting with Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Banda Singh ji was a true Khalsa and remained a steadfast gursikh till his last breath. His unflinching faith and love for Sikhi was above everything. He would not trade his Sikhi; not even for a precious life.

Time and again vested interests have attempted to project Banda Singh Ji as a bairagi who never became a Khalsa. Contemporary writers have projected Babaji as a ruthless killer and plunderer.

This movie is an attempt to undo the wrong doings of fanatic historians and malicious people whose biased accounts portray Baba Banda Singh ji’s deeds and character in a manner which is undoing of Khalsa spirit......

A saga of Valor & Sacrifice is the first 2D animated movie on Sikh History. Through this animated movie we have attempted to relive the beyond compare martyrdom of Baba Zorawar Singh ji and Baba Fateh Singh ji. Utmost care is taken in creating character figures for the revered Sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji.....
