Shahid, Law aur Gangster.
‘Shahid’ is about the life of the controversial lawyer Shahid Azmi who was assassinated in 2010. Directed by Hansal Mehta, produced by AKFPL, Bohra Bros, and distributed by UTV Motion pictures . The film is set to release on the 18th of October after its world premier at the 2012 TIFF. The movie stars Raj Kumar Yadav in the title character and the story revolves mainly around him. Hope the producers and the director join again to make a biopic on the life of Narendra Dabholkar(Another Marathi icon who was recently assassinated). The story opens with Shahid being shot point blank at his office and it continues linearly otherwise. The opening immediately reminded me of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Jobs’. Is it a necessity that biopics should begin very dramatically or with a possible ending of the life of the person depicted? Is it because there are many milestones in the life of icons that its difficult to create an apt ending to these sort of movies? The movie showcases more of a rather sweet life of Shahid in the first half and gains momentum in the second half where the major drama occurs. Pre-interval drama is more of Shahid’s own upcoming and the people he meets while post-interval is full of courtroom drama. The interval was placed exactly at the mid point of the parabolic life story of Shahid Azmi. I wonder how Raj Kumar was chosen to play the role of Shahid when he looks nowhere close to the man he’s portraying. Apart from the looks the guy was very comfortable in his role. Actors should take up biopics seriously as it has more scope for them(Take Ashton Kutcher as an Inspiration). Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub as Arif, he’s one actor to look out for his subtle reactions. He made us realize that if not for Arif, Shahid wouldn’t have accomplished so much. Prabhleen Sandhu(Mariyam), K K Menon(War Saab), Tigmanshu Dhulia(Maqbool Menon) in their respective small roles made the story complete. Very few people knew about Shahid Azmi and I think that this man should be made known to everyone. I’ve not lived when there was a Gandhi but was alive when Shahid was fighting for the lives of the innocent in a polite way. There’s a point in the movie where Shahid is being provoked by a prosecutor about his dark past and this is what he says to her “I can sue you but I won’t”. Such a remarkable character he should have been. His record of 17 acquittals in a short span of time is indeed a great achievement so people please watch this for sure, Shahid will not disappoint you. I hope more such biopics should be made and the patronage for such genre will increase. In a country where iconic people are made gods, a film made about them will be a blessing. It will take time but it will happen.
Fictitious yet not hard to believe.
Shahid is one of those low budget movies which comes in every year and gets pummeled by all the star studded, extravagant, over the top commercial films. Premiering in Sept 2012 in the Toronto Film Festival and Oct 2013 in India, it has been successful throughout, but has not gained the popularity/recognition it deserves. Shahid deals with two very delicate subjects – Terrorism and Hindu-Muslim conflicts. We have seen these themes explored in a lot of movies before; however, this movie stands apart because it is a Biography (Almost). Even though a message at the start of the movie clearly mentions that it’s a work of fiction ‘inspired’ from a real life incident, nowhere in the movie does it seem like the director or the writers have exaggerated. Shahid is the story of Shahid Azmi, a lawyer and a human rights activist and his struggle in the professional, personal and societal front. Rajkumar Rao (Kai Po Che fame) is exceptional; however, a few scenes with Prabhleen Sandhu(the wife) seemed to be weird, the dialogs were umm.. unpolished awkward. There was indeed a lack of ‘chemistry’. On Googling, I found out that most of the movie dialogs were actually improvised. Perhaps Mehta was trying to keep it as real as possible, but this does work in most parts of the movie. For GOW fans, the movie also features a cameo from Tigmanshu Dhulia (Ramadhir Singh), though unnecessary. I was expecting a ‘beta tumse naa hopayega’, which never happens of course. K.K Menon has a small cameo too. Apart from the improvised dialogs, for me, there was nothing wrong with the movie. The Soundtrack was decent. The courtroom scenes and arguments were brilliant. The extended scene after the credits was a good touch. All in all, a must watch. Or at least google Shahid Azmi.
