Storyline

Sub-Inspector Mohit Kumar joins Delhi Police' Crime Branch and is instructed to work under the supervision of Senior Police Inspector Hanumant Singh, who lives with his wife and school-going son, Nikhil. Mohit witnesses Hanumant's family come under attack and becomes sympathetic - especially when the media - including his Aaj Tak Reporter and girlfriend, Varsha Mathur - criticizes him. Mohit does change his mind about Hanumant when he witnesses the latter break the laws as well as accept bribes and shares it with other police officers with impunity. Mohit will not only face career and personal challenges when he decides to oppose politically-connected Hanumant, but also when Varsha, along with two other journalists, will be abducted by Islamic terrorists.

Nana Patekar - A Master Actor!
5 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Tigmanshu Dhulia's 'Shagird' is a well-made, gripping film, that has many twists & turns on its side. But, above all, its Nana Patekar, who deserves the highest praises. Like Always, The National-Award-Winning Iconic Actor, pitches in a Masterful Performance & Own This Film!

'Shagird' Synopsis: A rookie cop questions the tactics of his superior, and attempts to track the abductors of his girlfriend.

'Shagird' went unnoticed at the box office, and that's truly sad. Its a well-made, gripping film, along-with some clever twists & turns. The film does have some minuses, but overall, the pluses outshine the minuses.

Tigmanshu Dhulia's Screenplay is gripping & offers some very good twists. His Direction, on the other-hand, is competent. Cinematography & Editing are ordinary.

Nana Patekar's Masterful Performance is truly the Highlight of this under-rated flick. The Amazing Actor sinks his teeth into the part & performs like a freaking rock-star. This performance is among his best to date. Among other performances, Mohit Ahlawat does a fair job. Zakir Hussain & Anurag Kashyap are superb.

On the whole, 'Shagird' is a well-made film in all respects. A Must See for Nana Patekar Fans!
