SPOILER ALERT: Do not read further if you are still only planning to watch Jodi in theatres

Diljit Dosanjh’s movie Jodi released in theatres recently. The movie has a surprise in store and it is related to Sidhu Moosewala. It appears that the film, in his own way, paid a tribute to the legend.

Diljit Dosanjh’s Jodi, at the forefront, is a romantic film. He is paired with Nimrat Kaur in the movie.

However, this Amandeep Singh directorial is more than just that. The movie has an aspect that is mysterious and yet, very much in sync with Sidhu Moosewala’s death.

While most parts of Jodi are about the romance between Diljit’s Sitaara and Nimrat’s Kiran Jyot (again, the names mean star and a ray of hope), there is a very dark aspect to it. This dark aspect is about killing of people.

A mysterious gang threatens the singers, who are now a family. They are married to one another and even have a six-year-old kid.

In the film, Kiran is the first one to get killed in the attack. It is also interesting to note that the attacks happened when the attackers hid and waited for their car to arrive.

There are many hints that the movie is somewhat related to Moosewala death. One of them is Sitaara’s last song about looking death in the eye (which he eventually does).

The other hint is that Sitaara was adviced to change the tone of his songs so he stops receiving threats. He almost even agreed for the same. Very famously, Moosewala’s father had said that he asked his son not to include lyrics about bullets and violence in his track.

One of the last scenes – where Sitaara and Kamal Jyot’s acting in their movie is appreciated – also relates to Moosewala to a great extent. Thus, it appears that Jodi is, in fact, a tribute to Sidhu Moosewala, in its own way, of course.
