Sadda Haq (English translation: Our Right) is a Punjabi historical drama movie based in the late 1980's and early 1990's during a period of extreme turmoil in Punjab. It portrays what prompted young men in the state to rise up and fight against a corrupt police and government system. Further, it challenges the term "terrorist" being used to label individuals of a minority faith in India, fighting for equality and peace. Sadda Haq marks a milestone for the Punjabi film industry. The controversy surrounding the film and the Indian government bans, has generated an enormous amount of interest towards this film.
