"By showing me injustice, God taught me about justice."- Shahid (2012).
Shahid gets engaging and gripping within the first 10 minutes itself. What makes Shahid hit you hard is its sharp editing, superb realistic performances from the entire talented cast. With a mix of more facts and less fiction, director Hansal Mehta makes this best film of his career as an absorbing documentation of the life of Shahid Azmi. Despite having certain plotholes, it deserves a standing ovation for standing up to be counted and narrating such kind of story.
My verdict: If you have not seen it till now and you are reading this then, STOP AND WATCH IT NOW!
My overall score: 8.9⭐/10
