Mehsampur is a concoction of fiction and documentary-styled craftmanship. It is also a film in a film, and ‘ALSO’ the film is also a sort of biopic on Amar Singh Chamkila, the iconic Punjabi folk singer who was shot down at the age of 27 back in 1988.
The film cast includes Lal Chand, Devrath Joshi, Navjot Randhawa, Jagjeet Sandhu, Surinder Sonia.
