Encompassing the ugly side of student politics in its fold, Punjabi film Sikander (2013) is a story of Punjab’s youth in the purview of student politics and how the state’s politicians use them for vested interests — including illegal activities involving monopolising cable networks. Set in Chandigarh’s Panjab University, the film shows a dark and dangerous side of campus as student groups clash for power, even if it means resorting to murder. Sikander is also the debut movie of Bollywood actor Gul Panag.
