'Udta Punjab' Hits A High With Its Treatment Of The Punjab Drug Crisis

Udta Punjab is an eye-opening account of how the ongoing drug crisis in Punjab is consuming the mind, body and soul of the state's youth. It's enough to make your blood boil and your eyes wet. The movie presents a kaleidoscopic account of how drugs enter the border state via Pakistan. How the ruthless drug lords operate under the aegis of the state machinery. How easily youngsters get sucked into the maw of darkness, choosing to live in drug-induced utopias rather than face reality.
