Young Animated Martyrs


Finally, what I have been waiting for, an animated movie in Punjabi. An engineer and his friend in Sas Nagar, Punjab dipped into the internet and read a couple of books and created, Sahibzadey: A Saga of Valor & Sacrifice. The Indian Express reports:

Recalls computer engineer Navnit Singh: ``We were griping about the youth being ignorant about religion when my friend Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon suggested that animated films could bridge the gap.’’

You can watch a trailer of the film on their web-site (kind of a slow download). From the trailer the film looks like quite the promoter of the myth of the martial races. I wonder if the sequels the duo have planned will have some of the great sufi aspects of Sikhism.
