    Sat Sri Akal, a Punjabi movie, is the name of a unique upcoming socio-religious family entertainment movie to be released now in September 2008 to commemorate 300th anniversary of Gurgaddi Divas of Guru Granth Sahib ji.

    The movie, production of Mata Tripta Ji Charitable Trust and Frankfinn Entertainment Company Pvt Ltd is a story revolving around the love, sentiments and faith towards Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The narrative of the movie affirms and reiterates that Almighty God always stands by the ones who are drenched in His love and have full trust in Him. Based on true happenings, the movie is a live account of a family having immense belief in Waheguru, a story splendidly told amongst heart rending gurbani/shabads sung by legends like Jagjit Singh, Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurty, Abhijit, Sadhna sargam and one sweet-romantic, another foot-tapping song by Sunidhi Chauhan ...

    Manpreet Singh & Kimi Verma in movie Sat Sri Akal




    Starcast: Kimi Verma, Manpreet Singh, Vivek Shauq, Aron Bali, Dolly Minhaas, Neelu Kohli, Manmeet Singh.

    The movie has been shot at the picturesque locations in Punjab (Mandi Gobindgarh, Rajpura and Sirhind), and Chandigarh. Considerable portion has also been shot at Sri Harmandir Sahib (Amritsar) and Sri Hazur Sahib, Nanded and a sizeable portion will be shot at Sri Bangla Sahib, Manali (HP) and Mumbai.

    The script of the film is written by Arvinderjit Singh (Kittu) and directed by Kamal Sahni, the movie revolves around traditional values, love, sentiments, and colossal faith towards the Almighty God. Particularly, it tends to inculcate immense belief towards Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and the Gurbani enshrined within. The film tends to enlighten one on how Guru Granth Sahib is practical Guru in this modern world. For the first time, the "true to life" ambience of pilgrimage places like Sri Harmandar Sahib (Amritsar), Sri Hazur Sahib (Nanded) and Sri Bangla Sahib (Delhi) would be shown on 35 mm format.

    This big production is a sequel after the success of the tele-film, Sada Chir Jeevo by the Trust in 2003 on unparalleled martyrdom of four sons (Sahebzadas) of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The Trust, named after mother of Guru Nanak Dev ji is a non-political social organization, providing free medical/diagnostic facilities to the poor and at nominal cost since 1999.

    It has a decent love story going through ups and downs of life, splendidly told amongst heart rendering Gurbani shabads sung by legends and foot-tapping songs. Music, a spell-binding and unique fusion of tradition and modernity, with 8 Gurbani shabads and 3 songs, all by celebrity singers, is one of the major highlights of the film.

    Three shabads in the soundtrack are rendered by the celebrated icon, Jagjit Singh in his soothing style. One shabad has been rendered by our beloved Ishmeet Singh (Late) as his first, last and only playback in any film. Though Ishmeet is not in this carnal world, his voice in Sat Sri Akal would continue to reverberate forever across the universe.

    Other renowned singers embellishing the soundtrack with their melodious voices include Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan, Abhijeet, Sadhana Sargam, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Krishna, Ravinder, Feroz Khan and Richa Sharma. The soulful music has been composed by Ravinder Singh.

    The impressive star cast includes Kimi Verma, the most established actress of the contemporary Punjabi Cinema. Manpreet Singh, a turbaned Sikh guy from Bollywood plays the male lead against Kimi. Key roles have been played by the established bollywood actors like Arun Bali and Dolly Minhas, besides Avtar Gill, Manmeet Singh, Vivek Shauq, Neelu Kohli, and Nirmal Rishi. Pooja Tandon and Sonpreet are the promising newcomers making their maiden appearance in a mega film.
