Shahid traces the true story of slain human rights activist and lawyer Shahid Azmi. From attempting to become a terrorist to being wrongly imprisoned under a draconian anti-terrorism law to becoming a criminal lawyer Shahid traces the inspiring personal journey of a boy who became an unlikely messiah for human rights while following the rise of communal violence in India. This 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. Written by
Hansal Mehta's film on the real-life slain lawyer Shahid Azmi is fearless work
Shahid is a must-see film with an absolutely impeccable sub text that can be read as an urgent warning against the politics of isolation practiced by many political parties.
watched the movie last night and thought this is one of the best movie i have seen in a long time.... a true story of a person fighting for truth.... a must watch for sure..... just amazing to see there are people like this in this world who would dedicate their life for justice and in their quest they will stop at nothing..... my salute to shahid azmi about i did not know before i saw this movie.... salute to hansal mehta for daring to make this movie..... a good quote made by the movie reviewer
"Shahid deserves more than just a standing ovation. It deserves accolades for standing up to be counted and narrating the kind of story that is usually buried under mainstream media cacophony.
The fact that Shahid has got to a multiplex near you should also be applauded and made the most of. Go and watch the film it is one of the most important films to come out of Mumbai in a long, long time" Best tribute to Shahid Azmi by Hansal Mehta, very inspirational true life story.
