Mohali : Amandeep Singh Rakhrow (Aapna Pollywood) ‘Jatt Jeona’ is a name so big that within a span of 30 years, it’s been made into two big films, Jatt Jeona Morh in 1992 and recently made Maurh in 2023. Jatt Jeona Morh, a film that every Punjabi is familiar with, will return to our hearts as it will release on the Punjabi OTT platform Chaupal. A film that made it huge at the box office 30 years ago, back in 1992, that established a mark of real ‘heroism’, is surely here to make you reminisce about your childhood days and take you back to an era when Punjabi cinema was still young.
It was a coincidence that back then it was a three-way clash in Punjab with Jatt Jeona Morh, Khiladi (Akshay Kumar), and Police Officer (Jackie Shroff) all releasing together. However, Jatt Jeona Morh came out best in the long run.
With an attempt to make a biopic on Jeona Morh, Jatinder Mauhar’s ‘Maurh’ made an appearance in the theatres on 9th June 2023. Ammy Virk and Dev Kharoud played their parts perfectly and were loved by the audience, whereas Guggu Gill’s acting as Jeona Morh was also highly appreciated back then and in fact is still looked upon by various Punjabi actors. It can’t be missed that both the actors, have immense following amongst the Punjabi masses.
Where predecessor Jatt Jeona Morh was a massive hit, the successor Maurh also did well upon release. Jatt Jeona Morh is all set to release on the OTT platform Chaupal on 20th July.
Chief content officer, Nitin Gupta, on talking about revisiting topics of yesteryear and making newer versions of old films said that “Today also there are many stories from the past that are quite relevant and a hit film out of those stories can be made. Jatt Jeona Morh was a classic film that still runs through the veins of masses today.”
