Jogi which was released on the 16/09/2022 on Netflix India, is Hindi-language drama movie, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Sultan, Bharat and Tiger Zinda Hai) under the AAZ Films production banner.
The movie will tell the story of a community that is being ripped apart at the seams by the anti-Sikh riots that ravaged India in 1984. As noted by Gadgets360, the film is “a fictionalised biopic of sorts, recounting the horrors of the 1984 anti-Sikh protests in Delhi.”
Specifically, the movie will focus on a college student called Jogi as he cuts his hair, blends in with the rioters and devises a plan to secretly transport his people to Punjab.
Thankfully, Jogi is not alone; being joined by police officer Rawinder Chautala and friend Kaleem, who both must try to keep the plan a secret whilst avoiding rioters at all costs.
However, in the midst of the riots, it comes to light that a corrupt politician called Tejpal may have incited the hatred and hired hooligans to specifically target Sikh households.
Speaking to Telegraph India, director Ali Abbas Zafar explained how “The sole purpose of making this film was to get the right emotion out.”
