It is a story is of a mother and her missing son set in the backdrop of 1984 Punjab, when the state was going through a terrible time of terrorism. The film depicts the longing of a mother for her son and her search for him, who is labelled a terrorist because of the bad times in Punjab and how he eventually fights for his rights along with longing to return home because of his love for his mother. It also depicts the sensitive time for the youth of Punjab.
The movie is said to be Diljit’s dream project and being passionate about the project he said, “If God gave me that kind of money, I would have loved to produce this film myself.”
Whilst Producer Gunbir Singh said,” I never gave up hope for my pet project, 1984 despite it lying in cold storage for at least 2 years now. Finally, the co-producer of Jatt & Juliet 2, Gunbir Singh Sidhu has shown the guts to produce this film, badi himmat dikhai hi ena ne. It will be directed by Anurag himself. And when I say, badi himmat dikhai, I also mean that despite seeing the hashar of such film, as we saw with the recent movie Sadda Haq. Sidhu saab was ready to come on board. But we aren’t aiming at depicting any controversy in this film, though it’s set in 1984 Punjab, It’s just a touching narrative.”
