73.5% of Punjab’s youth is addicted to drugs. A multi-million drug nexus operating under the noses of the Border Security Force, The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, The Narcotics Control Bureau and the Intelligence Bureau, leaving them as mere bystanders to Punjab’s erosion. The yearly consumption of alcohol in Punjab is touching 29 Crore bottles making it one of the highest per capita consumers of alcohol in the world!
The scenario in Punjab is worsening at such a rapid rate, that experts have already begun to put an expiry date to the state.
The documentary focuses on the imminent threat of drug mania in Punjab. It explores in detail how the drug is trafficked in Punjab from India Pakistan border and this network spreads through the country.
Narrated by Rahul Bose and cited by many as important names. However at times, it does try to build pathos to get the sympathies of the viewer, but mostly it stays rather bold. Really an eye-opener.
