Prior to that the sense and perception of a common "Punjabi" ethno-cultural identity and community did not exist, even though the majority of the various communities of the Punjab had long shared linguistic, cultural and racial commonalities.
Traditionally, Punjabi identity is primarily linguistic, geographical and cultural.
Mubarakan Review : You are most definitely not in original territory here nor is there anything smart going on in Mubarakan.
By the 1960s, Indian Punjab underwent reorganisation as demands for a linguistic Punjabi state increased (in line with the policy of linguistic states that had been applied in the rest of India).The Hindi-speaking areas were formed into the states of Himachal Pradesh and Haryana respectively, leaving a Punjabi speaking majority in the state of Punjab.To add to the mess, there is also Nafisa (Neha) who is actually dating Charan and who is expecting him to pop the question soon.Since the twins rely heavily on their uncle Kartar for all solutions in life, they rush to him in London. Kartar’s plans always sound good but they’re never foolproof.Arjun’s double-act allows for some smiles and the girls, Ileana, Athiya and Neha are easy on the eye, though they’re just decorative set-pieces.
Ratna and Pavan add weightage with their stellar acts, though Pavan should have kept it down in the dramatic portions, where he is way too loud.
He asks his brother (Pavan) in Punjab to raise Charan (Arjun) and his sister (Ratna) in London to raise Karan (Arjun in a double role).
When the twins cross continents, they leave behind a trail of confusion.
They reside predominantly in the province of Punjab, neighbouring Azad Kashmir in the region of Jammu and Kashmir and in Islamabad Capital Territory.
Punjabis are also found in large communities in the largest city of Pakistan, Karachi, located in the Sindh province.
Instead the family is torn apart and the twins’ lives get even more complicated.
