A dramatic presentation of the bomb blasts that rocked Bombay on March 12, 1993, displays the police investigation, amidst allegations of human rights violations, led by DCP Rakesh Maria, in tracking down the suspects, especially Bashir Khan. Bashir managed to elude authorities by re-locating to Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and West Bengal, after finally being apprehended in Bombay. His confession and subsequent flashbacks showcases the apathy shown by authorities who refused to intervene during the destruction of the sacred Babri Masjid by Hindu Kar Sevaks, and the inability of the police to fulfill their mandate and protect the vulnerable, forcing many to flee to other locations. The subsequent aftermath that succeeded in irreversibly polarizing communities in Bombay; Pakistan's involvement in training and arms' supplies; the main alleged suspects, Dawood Ibrahim, and Mushtaq Memon, sought refuge in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, while Indian politicians made a cosmetic move to ...Written by

When the dog is taken inside the small go-down to check the sacks containing the RDX, it simply whimpers and comes out(because it only smells fish), thus indicating that there is no explosive material. But when the cop comes in and kicks the bottom sack, he finds the stuff. The dog itself smelled the lowermost sack in the first place, yet it did not bark. See more »
[Asgar murmurs an affirmation]
Sit straight! Since when have you been working with Tiger Memon?
What do you know about him?
Sir, I was merely a manager there.
One year is long enough to become a hood from a manager.
Sir I only used to keep accounts.
But you just said you were a manager! Look Asgar, I haven't eaten anything since morning... My head is hurting and I'm hungry... If you dont talk, I will make you do so! Tiger smuggles Silver, doesn't he? What else does he do...

17 seconds' worth of cockfighting scenes had to be deleted from the UK version. UK law does not allow any film footage of actual animal cruelty that was deliberately orchestrated by the film-makers. See more »
I remember watching the trailers of Black Friday a couple of years ago and making it a point to watch it.Never before has anyone dared to approach such a controversial issue so blatantly,which is probably why it worked.The events that are depicted in this movie shook not only the city of Bombay but the nation as a whole.To add to the documentary-like look at the blasts of '93,director Anurag Kashyap has done a brilliant job of elucidating moving,intense performances from fine actors like Kay Kay Menon and Aditya Srivastava. Technically, Black Friday is more visionary than most Hindi movies ever made.It did not have exotic locations,an ensemble star cast of the most high profile actors in the industry,or an unlimited budget,all of which are necessities for an Indian movie.The use of complex Steadicam shots,slow motion and hand-held cameras really put the movie into a different perspective.The use of lighting in situations such as the interrogations being bathed in red light also helped set the mood required to really go into the depths of all the stories of the main characters which have been intricately woven together with finesse. Hats off to Mr. Anurag Kashyap for bringing such a fine piece of art to Indian cinema.Seems like the time spent with Mr. Mani Ratnam,the greatest Indian director ever to get behind a camera,is paying off.This is evident in the tinge of patriotism and realism portrayed.Personally i hope guys with vision like this continue bringing quality to Indian cinema.It really needs it.
