Verdict: Highlights a serious issue in the most entertaining way.

Any movie that stars Neeru Bajwa is special. And to add icing on the cake, Uda Aida has the immensely likable Tarsem Jassar opposite Neeru in a project helmed by the “hit machine” of Pollywood – Ksshitij Chaudhary.

The film touches upon a serious issue faced by a majority of people from Punjab – the craze for English. There are people who segregate the English speakers from those who cannot speak English. Uda Aida is a direct take on the education system, language divide, superiority complex, the problems that parents from villages experience while getting their child admitted to a global school.

What’s Uda Aida About: 

The film revolves around Gurnam Singh (Tarsem Jassar) and Manjeet Kaur (Neeru Bajwa) who live in a small village and want their son Amandeep Singh to study in a city convent school. The real struggle only starts after the admission when the simple family has to cope with the other children and their rich families. In the end, they realize that their dreams of having a well-spoken and well-read child from a high-end school have only spoiled their own relationship with their child. They come to understand that knowing English is not an end to their means but it is equally important to have respect and pride in their own mother tongue and other things related to their culture.
