Sidhu (Navjot Sidhu) – a well to do, happy go lucky NRI who has chosen to settle in his native village, spreads the message of self-empowerment and entrepreneurship amongst the village youth. Led by Himmat (Harbhajan Mann), the youth set off a revolution of development in the village. Their lives are changed by Sidhuâ€™s simple but extremely enterprising initiatives. Soon, the village transforms into a modern prosperous hamlet and becomes a model village.
The film drives an important message targeted at Punjabi audiences to realize the importance of being an entrepreneur in oneâ€™s own land rather than showing their extraordinary entrepreneurship in the West where Punjabis are touted to be fairly successful and hardworking, an impression which belies the visible reality back home. â€˜Mera Pindâ€™ is a complete family entertainer with a perfect blend of emotions, drama and comedy.
