IK ONKAR was Param Sant ‘Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj’s first teaching, as well as the opening sentence of ‘Shri Guru Granth Sahib’ Ji. “Ik Onkar,” directed by Aviral Raj Sharma and produced by Talwinder Singh ” Musafir,” was released under the auspices of Nanak Films International. Yellow Music’s music is about to be marketed worldwide by Globe Movies, which is controlled by “Vivek Ohri.”
IK ONKAR reverberates throughout Gurbani. The lead character believes in Baani and always tries to handle issues with politeness, but in the end, a significant shift occurs in his character, and he realizes that a Sikh sometimes must raise kirpan against societal evil. Because to follow the path of Sikhism, one must be complete, i.e. Sant Siphai. The Bani inspired the film, which teaches us to live our lives righteously. Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj’s teachings make us courageous.
All of our Gurus instilled in us the values of sacrifice and service. The goal of this film is to introduce people to the values of ‘Sikhism,’ to motivate them to grow as people and to live a life of freedom and harmony. The term “Ik Onkar” itself conveys the notion of Oneness in society. We will be connected by love if we all live our lives per the Guru’s teachings. The notion of a Saint-Soldier was taught to us by our Gurus. Only by adhering to this will we be able to achieve the purest form of governance.

Ban on Movie
“Ik Onkar” was shot in Punjab, Delhi, and Maharashtra in 2015 and submitted to the CBFC for certification in 2016. After being denied any certificate, the filmmakers turned to the FCAT for help earlier this year, but it didn’t work out either. Talwinder Singh claims that his first film, “Ik Onkar,” does not offend any community.
“We are bridging a divide between the Hindu and Sikh communities with this video. We haven’t harmed anyone’s neighborhood. The CBFC did not even request any reductions. ‘The picture encourages communal conflict,’ they simply stated “IANS spoke with Talwinder.
“We were given the same rationale by the FCAT. I found it to be biassed and suffocating us and our right to free speech there “.
The filmmakers intend to take their case to the Delhi High Court, requesting that the CBFC reassess the film.
“We have already received censor board approvals from the United States, Canada, and Australia. We plan to release the film in these nations soon, although it is an Indian production. As a result, our motivation is to release it in India. We will shortly take our case to the Delhi High Court, requesting that the censor board reconsider our film “Talwinder said.
On Thursday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) officials criticized the censor boards and defended the controversial Punjabi film “Ik Onkar,” which was “banned” for release in India for “causing communal strife.”
On an occasion, Alka Lamba, Somnath Bharti, Jarnail Singh, and Avtar Singh slammed the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), with Lamba accusing the censor board of corruption.
From the Makers
Making this picture was merely a “Sewa” in the presence of the Almighty. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been allowed to develop a film with such a hallowed title as “IK Onkar.” “We have put in a lot of work in this film and presented the truth that prevails today,” said Talwinder Singh “Musafir,” the film’s producer. There are many ills in society, and this film will raise awareness of these evils among the young and others. I hope the audience appreciates our effort and the notion and message we wanted to convey with ‘Ik Onkar.'”

Our goal with this film is to introduce people to the values of ‘Sikhism,’ to motivate them to grow as people and to live a life of freedom and harmony. Though we also attempted to educate people, particularly the youth, to step up and fight to make society a better place to live. Essentially, the film will represent the life of a young man and his efforts to improve society.” “Directing this film is a challenge for me because when you’re directing a film with religious beliefs, you have to be precise with facts,” said the film’s director, Aviral Raj Sharma.
We must likewise follow in the footsteps of a Saint and combat, no matter what it takes, all of the practice sites that exist in our society. It is no longer acceptable to remain on the sidelines; instead, be brave and enter the battleground, where you will fight to the finish.
In this film, a character acts out this Sikhism teaching. We’ve seen the incredible bravery of a Sikh young man who speaks out against the drug gang that operates in his home state. The Sikh character in the film is unmoved by the threats and remains committed to Gurubani’s teachings, demonstrating that Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj’s word is the ultimate ‘Truth.’
