“Jatt Jeona Maurh” is so well-known that it has inspired two successful films in the past 30 years: Jatt Jeona Morh in 1992 and the more current Maurh in 2023. Everybody in Punjab is familiar with the movie Jatt Jeona Morh, and it will soon be available on Chaupal, a Punjabi OTT service.
A movie that was a box office success 30 years ago, in 1992, and that set a mark of true “heroism” is undoubtedly here to bring back memories of your youth and transport you to a time when Punjabi cinema was still in its infancy. The simultaneous releases of Jatt Jeona Maurh, Khiladi (Akshay Kumar), and Police Officer (Jackie Shroff) at the time marked a three-way clash in Punjab.
Guggu Gill’s portrayal of Jeona Morh was also well-received at the time and is still highly regarded by other Punjabi performers today. It is undeniable that both actors have huge popularity among the Punjabi populace. Whereas the film’s predecessor, Jatt Jeona Morh, was a huge success, despite having many excellent aspects, this one’s script and direction may not have been up to par, diminishing the overall effect of the subject.
On July 20, Jatt Jeona Morh will debut on the OTT platform Chaupal. When asked about revisiting issues from the past and creating contemporary iterations of classic films, chief content officer Nitin Gupta said, “Today also there are many stories from the past that are highly relevant and a hit film out of those stories can be developed. The iconic movie Jatt Jeona Morh continues to circulate in the blood of many people today. For more updates stay tuned to Filmi Bytes.
