Reasons why you should watch Punjabi Film ’25 Killey’ (Trailer)
The biggest crowd-puller element in the forthcoming Punjabi movie #25 kille (25 acres) is that it brings two legends of Punjabi cinema, Guggu Gill and Yograj Singh, face-to-face after 16 years. And, looking at the trailer – that begins with introduction of the two – it seems the best sequences in the action film will be the ones where the two share screen space.
Actor Ranjha Vikram Singh, who was seen in a negative role in “Heropanti”, is the producer of ’25 Kille and also its lead actor.
Directed by Simranjit Singh Hundal from Wadala village in #Amritsar, “25 Kille” is produced under the banner Running Horses Films and Color9Productions. It is slated to release on August 25.
The trailer of 25 Kille, produced by music label Saga Music, indicates that it is about four jatt brothers, Guggu Gill playing the oldest of them, and their sudden discovery that they have inherited a land of 25 acres. “How they get to fight for and acquire the land forms the crux, with Yograj’s character acting as the chief hurdle. It is a traditional Punjabi tale of peasants’ attachment with their land,” says Simranjit.
Primarily shot in about 10 villages around #Chandigarh and Ropar, the film is Simranjit’s third directorial venture. His first, Jatt Boys: Putt Jattan De, came in 2013 when he was 28.
Vikram, who is also one of the three producers, has done movies in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, including Manadhil Maayam Seidhai and Heropanti. “I play one of the four brothers, an innocent jatt Kabaddi player,’ he says.

Simranjit explains that, ”In the 80s and 90s, a #Punjabi film used to be released only in select theatres in Punjab and Haryana. Now, with the opening of more cinema chains like PVR, we are able to release them across the country.”
“Also, more-organised international distribution networks have helped us tap into Punjabi market in other countries — like Canada, U.K, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, even Spain. This has also encouraged the industry to produce more films.
