PUNJAB 1984 is a Punjabi language drama, with English subtitles, about a woman's search for her missing son; the film is set against the backdrop of political unrest in Punjab in 1984.

Violence

There are some scenes of moderate violence, including people being hit with bullets, with a few brief blood spurts.

There is also some mild bad language ('bastard', 'shit', 'bloody'), a mild sex reference, and a brief suicide reference when a man admits that he once tried to kill himself. There are several speeches in support of violent Sikh separatism, although these are countered by other speeches highlighting the futility of violent struggle, as well as the manipulative cynicism of some politicians and revolutionaries.
