The quirky and dialogue promos of ‘Udta Punjab’ were released before few days of the trailer launch were interesting enough to make people curious about the film. And the trailer has managed to live up to the hype created through the buzz. The intriguing trailer starts with a message stating the serious problem of Punjab, “70% of Punjab is in drug addict. If this hasn’t stopped, Punjab will soon become like Mexico”. The trailer conveys that the plot of the film is about the problem of Drug Addiction in Punjab which is very severe and is destroying the youth. The film has an intense plot and the story which revolves around four protagonists- Tommy (Shahid Kapoor) who is a drug addict Punjabi rock star, Alia Bhatt is playing a Bihari girl who also seems somehow related to the drug mania. Her glimpses show that she is very different this time with her de-glam avatar and surely going to impress the audience. Kareena Kapoor essaying the role of a doctor who wants to eliminate the drug addiction from Punjab. She is accompanied by a tough cop played by Diljit Dosanjh, who is debuting in Bollywood with this film.
