Angrej Punjabi Movie Full Story overview
A thoughtful young man struggles to find a woman to marry. Amrinder Gill an older adult from India, arrives at his pre-partition home in Pakistan, where he meets the current residents. When asked about his time in Pakistan, he begins to tell them of his experiences in the pre-partitioned India.
In 1945, a young farmer Angrej and his friend Aslam (Binnu Dhillon), visit a mela or carnival in a nearby village. Amrinder gill meets Maado (Aditi Sharma) at the carnival (who he is in love with). She reciprocates his feelings, and the two are in a secret relationship. He proposes marriage to Maado, but she is reluctant as her family would not approve of a love marriage, neither would Angrej’s. He tells his mother of his intentions to marry Maado. Angrej’s mother disapproves of love in general, but his sister-in-law agrees to arrange for the marriage.
Later, when Angrej goes to inform Maado of the impending marriage proposal, Maado’s father catches him. Before her father could do anything, a snake bites him, and he loses his ability to speak as a result of partial paralysis. Haakam (Ammy Virk), a rich landlord from Lahore and a distant relative of Maado’s grandmother, begins to visit Maado’s house and flirts with Maado frequently. Angrej sells his buffalo in order to buy gold bangle for Maado. However, she tells him that her family disapproves of his financial condition. She gives in to the advances made by Haakam, who brings her various gifts. Angrej is heartbroken when he witnesses a secret meeting between the two; Hakkam had brought a wood-cased radio for Maado from Lahore, much to her amusement.
Angrej’s family is invited to his cousin’s wedding, where he meets Dhann Kaur (Sargun Mehta), his cousin’s friend and the daughter of a wealthy aristocrat. The two also developed a friendship over the course of the next few days. Maado and her family are also present at the wedding. Kaur helps Amrinder gill in getting back with Maado, but is herself attracted to him. Haakam arrives at the wedding with the groom’s baraat; that night, he makes a pass at many women, including Kaur.
It begins to dress like a landlord and visits Maado. Impressed by his new appearance, Maado proposes him for marriage. Angrej realises that he does not love Maado any more but instead wants to be with Kaur, who loves him. He gifts the bangle to Maado and takes his leave. He reaches Dhann Kaur’s village only to find out that she got engaged. Then He leaves heartbroken.
A few days later Aslam informs him that Dhann Kaur’s fiance is Haakam. Angrej then pleads his case to Kaur’s father, who is enraged by his indecency and impudence. He threatens to shoot an undeterred Angrej as Kaur watches helplessly. Maado’s father, who has recovered from his paralysis, intervenes and vouches for Angrej. He is able to convince Kaur’s father to agree to the wedding, much to the delight of the couple.
