Jogi — out now on Netflix — is an intense and shifting drama set towards the backdrop of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Whereas the movie options fictional characters, it feels life-like because the narrative manages to spotlight the human price of the tragedy.

Jogi revolves around Joginder (Diljit Dosanjh), a charismatic younger man from a working-class household.
