A History of Valour


It's an entertaining story, adds his soft-spoken wife and producer, Pammi. "It's a film that talks of freedom of speech, of expression, the importance of truth and discipline, and finding God within," she says.

From the second it came alive on the screen at CII in Sector 31, the four-minute-long trailor of Chaar Sahibzaade was gripping, engaging, and real. It had all the works — the overpowering background score, the dramatic impact, the slick action, the surround effect. Okayed by SGPC and dubbed in different languages, it's Baweja's ode to the Gurus and creating awareness about Sikh history among the young generation.

He agrees that history and mythology are favourite subjects with Indian animation industry, but it's an uphill task and a huge risk. "Filmmaking is an art and, to master it and further it, one needs to take risks. I watch every film that releases, and have watched plenty of animations too. Chaar Sahibzaade is just the beginning, we are in talks with SGPC to cover the period between 1760 and 1767, and feature the legend behind the Golden Temple in live action format," informs Baweja. The film is scheduled to release next winter.
