Product Description

Shahid traces the story of a slain human rights activist and lawyer Shahid Azmi. Set during the communal violence that was unleashed in the city of Mumbai since 1993. We see a remarkable tale unfold. From attempting to become a terrorist to being wrongly imprisoned under the anti-terrorism law to becoming a lawyer, a champion of human rights (particularly the Muslim minorities in India), Shahid traces the inspiring personal journey of a boy while following the rise of communal violence in India. The story of an impoverished Muslim struggling to come to terms with injustice, inequality and rising above his circumstances is an inspiring testament to the human spirit.

  1.  Shahid - A film of a modern time 20 October, 2013 On
    Stirred is what I felt after watching this 2 hr thoughtful cinema. Rajkumar Yadav, whose only film I saw was Kai Po Che; delivers a subtle but soul stirring performance of a crusader who has taken up the voice of those falsely accused and left to fend for themselves in the legal tangle that drags on in the courtrooms. He is threatened, humiliated, attacked ; still he walks a lone road against the tide. The poster itself showing Yadav's face blackened is creative and sparks a curiosity for this film. Tigmanshu Dhulia has a short role in which he is effective; the other cast is suitably supporting.

    A must see for a soul stirring experience and an introspection.
