As a few days are left for The Black Prince to hit cinemas worldwide in Punjabi, English and Hindi (July 21), WSN presents reviews from BBC, Reuters and ANI which are popular on Facebook and YouTube by the immaculate Shabana Azmi, who plays the role of Maharani Jindan -the mother of Maharaja Duleep Singh.

World Sikh News has called The Black Prince, “The Sikh movie of the century”. No Sikh should miss this movie (21 July) and the four serials that will follow it as a sequel to relive the legacy of the Sikh nation. Let this movie become a benchmark for friends and foes of Sikhs, to learn “who the Sikhs are and who they were”. Remember, don’t just book tickets for your family and friends, book shows and cinema halls for days and weeks.

WSN presents reviews from BBC, Reuters and ANI by the immaculate Shabana Azmi who plays the role of Maharani Jind Kaur -the smart, good looking, seeped-in-history mother of Maharaja Duleep Singh -enacted by singer-actor Satinder Sartaj. Maharaja Duleep Singh, despite all the fraud and chicanery of the British in taking him to London, changing his religion, cosying in to Queen Victoria,  lives up to the Sikh ideal so ably mentioned by Giani Gian Singh in Prachin Panth Prakash –“A Sikh is either a king or a rebel.”

WSN readers are invited to views these video interviews of Shabana Azmi of The Black Prince and learn more about this glorious and forgotten chapter 0f the Sikh people. View these reviews as only a few days (21 July) are left for The Black Prince to hit cinemas worldwide in Punjabi, English and Hindi.

Isn’t it amazing that a lady actor who has made her mark in Bollywood cinema, in the Arts cinema off Bollywood, now plays the role of Maharani Jind Kaur -the mother of the last King of Punjab -Maharaja Duleep Singh, who was snatched from her as a child by the deceptive British who were scared of the Sikhs regaining their kingdom after they had annexed it in 1849 after the demise of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Not only the Sikhs, but even the British cinema goers have rediscovered the truths of Anglo-Sikh relationship, a tie which goes beyond the events that actually happened prior to the partition of the Indian continent in 1947. As expected, Lahore and its residents also nostalgically look forward to the movie as it was the capital city of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

“You were born to be a King. And a King you became, my son.” Believe me, I have seen this scene a thousand times and everytime I see it, I feel that Maharani Jindan is telling this not only to her son Maharaja Duleep Singh, but she is telling me, in fact, she is telling to every Sikh “Reclaim your kingdom.” Isn’t it?
