The Punjab 1984 is a good attempt to recapitulate the painful yesteryears of Punjab's political and social history. The movie succeeds to convey it's message in a very subtle manner. This is the reason that some sections of movie critics have labeled the story as imaginative withdrawn from reality and a distortion of facts. In a subtle manner Diljit Dosanj conveys that in those painful days, the terrorists, the police and the politicians all connived in the horrific episodes of violence. The director deservers accolades for his attempt to present the reality of 1984 when Golden Temple was invaded by the Army to flush out Sant Bhinderanwale and his brigade.

The story details the situation and condition of a mother's (Kirron Kher ) longing for the love of his missing son, named Shiva.
