    Kambdi Kalaai, Directed by ISH AMITOJ KAUR, 2006

    Billed as a tribute to the leading Singh Sabha ideologue Vir Singh, this is a reasonably well done independent film. That is assuming you accept the simplistic and flawed ultra-orthodox premise that a rejection of the Khalsa form is necessarily due to a lack of conviction rather than a passionate and informed alternate belief.

    When confronted with what is portrayed as religious infidelity on the part of their Sikh boyfriends, the two main female characters in the film reiterate the sentiment, 'If you can't be faithful to your religion, how can you be faithful to our marriage?'

    Religion, according to this film, is something immutable that is handed down from above as opposed to each individual's unique search for the truth.

    I don't know what you are trying to say here.Do you mean conviction is different from a passionate and informed belief?(I agree it is).Conviction is a better word and there is nothing flawed,simplistic or ultra orthodox about it.If things don't match your way of thinking it doesen't mean they are wrong--you should examine and allow for the possibility that you could be wrong.In any case why should a religion not be 'orthodox'(what is orthodox by the way--something that doesen't match your taste?)--would you accept it if it were modern(what is your definition of modern?).See,a religion's job is to tell the truth the way it is--independent of whether you like it or not or what adjective you choose to use for it.

    I think there's an element of truth here.
