Storyline

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.

User Reviews

 
Very ordinary.
14 June 2015 | by saumikgSee all my reviews

Here it goes... Those who don't watch it, wont miss anything.

The Idea of the movie was good even if nothing fresh, but the movie making was completely lousy. Acting and Direction both lacked polish and it had a typical B-grade movie experience to it. Nude scenes when incorporated were unnecessary / out of context and felt like they were put there just for the sake of it. The screenplay has way too many plot holes and gaffes. People who are gay or lesbian or bi, they do not run around rubbing it in the face of other people to make themselves feel better. Lack of sophistication and finesse to handle sensitive issues often makes the performing characters look stupid. If you want to highlight some of the most prominent issues of our times, at least a sincere effort is expected.
