Storyline

The delicate relationship between a 15-year-old girl and her grandfather is used to describe how the growing political tensions between Muslems and Hindus in 1992 led to the destruction of a medieval Muslim mosque and subsequently, violent rioting in the streets of Bombay. Naseem (urdu: sahar) means Morning breeze, and charts the story of a young school going girl Naseem in the months leading up to the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. She shares deep and loving bond with his ill grandfather who represents the era of communal harmony between Hindus and Muslims in India, as he fondly recalls the times he spent in pre-Independent Agra. As communal tension erupts in the city of Bombay, Naseem get increasingly bewildered by changing dynamics at her school and in the neighborhood, while her grandfather watches helplessly at a city getting deeply divided over the Babri Masjid issue.

"Naseem"- A story of relationship betweed young, energetic & smart girl with her grandfather in Mumbai during the communal riots and the impact of socio-political dispute on them. It is an essential viewing experience due to great cast acting, handling the subject matter maturely & show us the pre- independence harmonies & post independence state of tension between communities. The direction & cinematography is immersive and puts life into this movie.
