Spoiler warning!

Warning!, while I think this movie is well worth your time and deals with matters important to all Sikhs, don't read any further if you want the movie to be a surprise. My summary covers only part of the film. (The first sentence may tell you a little too much.)

Summary

The Movie opens with Gursewak Singh sitting in his office, as a young man with a trimmed beard wearing a turban comes in for an interview. The young man hoping to find work was named charanjit singh. Feeling some empathy for the young man, Gursewak Singh began to relate a story from his earlier years, narrating a story of his own life and his search that lead to his being baptized as a Khalsa and how he faced his problems by guru's grace.

The movie then takes us back to an earlier time when Gursewak was a Cap wearing Sikh, who knew very little about sikhi and its history. He and his friends were on a trip and with night coming on they found a Gurdwara, which had accomodations for pilgrims and weary travelers. Before he settled in for a much needed night of restful sleep he went to the central room where the Guru Sahib was installed. As he entered the room Gursewak heard a man speaking. He didn't want to interrupt the man so he entered the room carefully and looking, saw that it an old man lamenting before Guru Sahib about his son who cut his hair. He was very angry with his son. He wept before Guru about his son ignoring the words of Guru Gobind Singh and the compact that the Guru and his sikhs had made. As he listened, the words of the old man touched Gursewak Singh and stirred something in his inner soul. With a pain he couldn't understand he left his friends to continue their tour of Shimla He started a very personal tour into his heart and the past of his ancestors. His inner journey took him into the history of Sikhi and his roots.

His journey of self discovery takes him to Mehdiana Sahib and another gurdwara, his search ends with his taking amrit before he returns home, as a bapitized Sikh. The rest of the movie deals with the problems he faced after having amrit?

I won't ruin the rest of the film, I only wanted to let you know enough to get you watch this very enjoyable film.

Did his family accept his step? Did his friends accept him? Did his professional life accept him? Please do watch this movie.
