Hansal Mehta’s ‘Shahid’, showcased at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s based on the life of lawyer and human rights activist, Shahid Azmi, who was assassinated in 2010 in Mumbai
Part thriller, part courtroom drama, part biopic, it is a gritty, inspirational portrayal of a pint-sized idealist who dies for the cause.
It is an explosive expose of the deep-rooted, pervasive anti-Muslim prejudices of the Indian state the police, the judiciary, the government and the people who conspire to have scores of innocents labeled as terrorists and languishing in jails without charges being proven.
