There are no specific movies, just the regular ones with sikh characters that I mentioned.
And as of the religion, its not an easy one.. what we see today is the highly reformed one.I am also not a sikh .. lol... I studies 14 long years in sikh school, so I know the religious history and the political history.
The first thing that meets the eye is the hair, one is not supposed to cut/pluck even a single hair of the body. Men and women included. Trust me this is not an easy thing to do. And it goes so far that one is not supposed to touch their hair with iron things( Scissors), though I never saw anyone following this one.
The last guru, made this so that the sikhs look different from the crowd.
For other four Ks ( one about Kesh/hair , I just told) you can look in the internet.

The youngest Indian religion is 'Sikhism'...it's less than 500 years old...started by Guru Nanak, the first guru of the Sikhs. By easiest I meant in Sikhism there are no restrictions, no hard core rituals to be followed, it's the simplest, least complicated one.


Are you sure, I hope this is not based on the bollywood movies Drool
