Punjab is the land of people who are so warm, lively, loving and; when time comes, the greatest warriors as well. This race had been fighting with the invaders for centuries and these centuries-long wars have made it a martial race. This characteristic has made us proud many a times but there’s also another side of this characteristic, and, that is very tragic. With agriculture controlling the economy of the state, the Punjabi farmer class, known as ‘Jatts’ , have had only one thing in their minds when it comes to prosperity — the land. And they can go to any extent for that even to the extent of shedding their own brothers’ blood. That is what our movie is all about. It highlights the various bloodbaths in many family and other feuds.
The word ‘Shareek’ may refer to ‘sharing’ in dictionary but in Punjab it had always been opposite to it. As time flies, one doesn’t even notice that how and when the brothers become the enemies of each other. Brothers are brothers and their children become cousins. But for the feudal society of Punjab, the word “‘cousins’, fighting over land”, stands for ‘shareeks’ and ‘shareeks’ stand for ‘enemies’. Just for the ownership of a piece of a land the cousins would wage a ruthless war between themselves. For centuries, this phenomenon has taken its toll and it has never stopped.
