Storyline

Hamid's (8) father has gone missing. His mother Ishrat has turned indifferent towards Hamid and the entire world after the incident. Neglected and lonely, with a heart searching for answers, Hamid star gazes in the hope of meeting his father. The number 786 always bewildered Hamid. One day a teacher tells Hamid that this is God's number. Using his father's old mobile phone, after trying different combinations, he finally manages to connect to a person, who he is convinced is God. On the other side is Abhay, a hard-knuckled CRPF Jawaan. Hamid's phone call, though surprising at first, intrigues Abhay who engages in humouring Hamid. These two, unknowingly and unintentionally, change each other's world for the better.

User Reviews

 
Biased free attempt of Bollywood.
22 May 2019 | by saraahzaidiSee all my reviews

It's so irony that a viewer was in a constant wait to see tilted side of the story that Bollywood has never failed to bring. To our surprise Hamid was not, It covered the situation of Kashmir like no movie before. It has portrayed the issue through empathy, by putting our feet in the shoes of not only the Kashmiris but also of the soldiers. Both sides are in pain yet we deny to see it. Heart breaking!
