Punjab is the land of people who are so warm, lively, loving and; when time comes, the greatest warriors as well. This race has been fighting with invaders for centuries and these centuries-long wars have made it a martial race. This characteristic has made Punjabis proud many times but there`s also another side of this characteristic, and, that is very tragic. With agriculture controlling the economy of the state, the Punjabi farmer class, known as `Jatts`, have had only one thing on their minds when it comes to prosperity - the land. And they can go to any extent for that even to the extent of shedding their own brothers` blood. That is what this film is all about. It highlights the various bloodbaths in many family feuds.
The word `Shareek` may refer to `sharing` in a dictionary, but in Punjab it has always been opposite to it. As time flies, one doesn`t even notice that how and when brothers become enemies. Brothers are brothers and their children become cousins. But for the feudal society of Punjab, the word `cousins`, fighting over land, stands for `shareeks` and `shareeks` stand for `enemies`. Just for the ownership of a piece of a land, the cousins would wage a ruthless war between themselves. For centuries, this phenomenon has taken its toll and it has never stopped.
The film `Shareek`, with all the emotion, romance, thrill and action; addresses this menace strongly, although in the undercurrent. With the protagonist Jassa and Dara the antagonist, the story aims at asking our society, ``Why, when and how we can stop our race from killing each other just for a piece of land which would not belong to us after the last breath deceives us?``
