Movie Info

This film is about lives of people who live on the edge of what society finds acceptable. It is about coming to terms with oneself and accepting other people as they are. The film is set in the cosmopolitan city of Delhi where people from all over the country come to fulfill their dreams. For some, these dreams are realized, while others remain in an endless pursuit of other elusive dreams. Perhaps it is the hope of ultimately reaching that destination that keeps one going. And then there are others who surrender to the overwhelming power of the city of dreams and get lost in the maze.


Critic Reviews for Shab

All Critics (6)

  • [Afzar's] time is so unevenly divided between love and ambition that it's hard to invest in the continuity of his scattered journeys, and consequentially, his eventual destiny.

  • While it is a mature film about human relationships, it is all over the place. There are so many emotional interactions between characters, you almost need a flowchart to keep track.

  • It isn't director Onir's best film. But it is a compelling look at human beings and their complex range of emotions and relationships.

  • Raveena Tandon has given one of her most sensual, brilliant performances in Shab.

  • Shab seems to want to make a grand statement about ambition, migration, exploitation and sexuality, but its scope is limited by the stodgy dialogue, the mostly poor acting and incredible levels of contrivance.

  • This feels like a college skit that mistakenly made it to the big screen.
