Storyline

The Final Solution is a 2003 documentary directed by Rakesh Sharma about the 2002 communal Gujarat Riots that arose as a response to the Godhra Train Burning incident on February 27, 2002, where 58 Hindus were burnt alive on a train carriage. An official estimate states that 254 Hindus and 790 Muslims were killed during the riots, with 223 more missing. The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications, and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future. The government of Gujurat at the time, led by Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was highly criticised throughout the documentary and was accused of inciting much of the rioting and not doing enough to halt it.

'Those who forget history are condemned to relive it'
29 September 2004 | by dustystudSee all my reviews

FINAL SOLUTION, documentary film, set up in Gujrat during February 2002 - July 2003, deals with the Gujrat riots, which shook the country. The movie is a study of the politics of hate. It is divided into four parts. It depicts the planned Genocide against the Muslims (minority community) and the aftermath of the carnage: Hindu-Muslim polarisation. It also tries to figure out the meaning of the emerging 'Hindutva'. The Terror Trail reconstructs through eyewitness accounts the attack on Gulbarg (Ahmedabad) and acts of barbaric violence against Muslim women at Eral and Delol/Kalol (Panchmahals) even as Chief Minister, Narendra Modi traverses the state on his Gaurav Yatra. The film is so powerful, that it can literally destroy a political party. A must watch!
