"Salam" is a feature length documentary about the Nobel prize winning Pakistani physicist, Abdus Salam. The film reveals the extraordinary life of the charismatic Abdus Salam, in all its color, vitality and tragedy. It is the story of a man who traversed two worlds with ease: one of science and religion, modernity and tradition, war and peace and obscurity and celebrity. When he won the Nobel prize in 1979, he became the very first Pakistani to achieve this distinction, and only the fourth from the subcontinent. Born in 1926 in a remote village in Punjab, British India, Salam was a child prodigy. He came from humble beginnings, growing up in a small brick house with a large family of eleven. While Salam's legacy looms large in the world of physics, he is largely forgotten in Pakistan because of his faith. Children do not read about him and he is still vilified and maligned by right wing clerics for being a "Qadiani"-a derogatory term for someone belonging to the Ahmadiyya community. ...
It's an incredible and very detailed documentary on Dr Abdus Salam. Tells you what a great thinker and scientist he was and how unfortunate the country was for losing his legacy to bigotry.I hope this film makes Pakistanis see Abdus Salam beyond his Ahmadi faith.
An absolutely brilliant biopic of Dr Salam is now on Netflix.
