UNFREEDOM is an urgent contemporary thriller about a society torn apart by political, religious, and sexual turmoil. Shifting between New York and New Delhi, the film juxtaposes two powerful and unflinching stories about religious fundamentalism and intolerance, one of which follows a Muslim terrorist attempting to silence a liberal Muslim scholar, while the other is about a young woman who defies her devout father and escapes an arranged marriage because she is secretly embroiled in a taboo lesbian romance. In this searing portrait of the polarized world we live in, all four characters go to their absolute limit-and beyond-in their struggle to defend their deeply-held and conflicting viewpoints on freedom, faith, family and love.

So much sophistication yet so dastardly made
7 January 2016 | by (India, Bangalore) – See all my reviews

This movie starts off with a bang! it immediately captures your attention with some riveting screenplay and writing. As a movie goer in India this movie caught my attention not because of the plot but because it was quickly banned as it came out. So naturally i was intrigued but this movie is nothing but a ridiculous waste of talent,resources and everyone's time. No offense to Raj Amit Kumar the movie was a glorious concept but there is just too much personal passion for the subjects chosen. Achieving an equilibrium between reality and fiction must be the goal when one makes movies using such excellent concepts but the reality is this movie is nothing but a shabby art project done by a passionate yet confused director.

Director Saab don't pay too much heed to this criticism you will do much better as time progresses.
