It dates back to the era of India-Pakistan partition when the politics that followed, had an impact on people from both sides of the border. Mudh Baseba agreement was a part of that politics. Punjabi film `Mitti Na Pharol Jogiya` is based on the true story of a family that was torn apart by this agreement.
This presentation of Ram Avtar Art Films has been produced by Ram Sidhu. The story, screenplay and direction have been done by Avtar Singh who has previously worked as the production head for Bollywood super hit Barfi! with director Anurag Basu. Avtar Singh told that Anurag Basu has actually mentored him for this project and he is sure that this will make an emotional connect with the audience. Producer Ram Sidhu said that the music of the film will surely carry our audience to that era and the melody will make them feel the pain of each character of the story.
The Chief Guest Milkha Singh was present on the occasion. He released the music of the film and said, the first thing of course is Japtej who is the USP of the film. I see my childhood in him so I am very attached to this talented boy. And secondly, the music is really soothing and certainly would be loved by people of every age and era.
The music has been composed by Desi Crew and Kannu Jimmy and Surjit Pattar, Shabdeesh, Bakhtabar Miyan, Bunty Bains, Happy Raikoti, Bachan Bedil and Vinder Nathu Mazra are the lyricists. Singers Kamal Khan, Kaur B, Javed Bashir, Nachattar Gill, Yaqoob Gill, Davinder Pal Singh and Surjeet Khan have lend their voices to the different sad, romantic and dance numbers of the film. The count totals to seven and the music rights are with Lokdhun.
