Movie Info

Socially conscious actress Nandita Das makes her feature directorial debut with this sincere study of the ongoing conflict between Hindus and Muslims in India. The setting is the state of Gujarat in the year 2002: 3000 Muslims have perished in communal riots, and two lone men are charged with the task of digging mass graves for the unfortunate victims of violence. Hanif and Muneera have just returned to their home to find it completely ransacked, but the vandalism doesn't enrage the couple

Audience Reviews for Firaaq

Some of the acting was awful, some was great. Some of the storylines were engaging, others weren't. Some of it was shot well, some of it was soapy. I think you get m drift. A welcome first film from Nadita Das. Brave of her to choose Muslim/Hindu conflict as her first venture. Highly ambitious, but not a complete success.
