Movie Info

Shahid is based on a true story of a slain human rights activist and lawyer Shahid Azmi, who was was killed in 2010 by unidentified assailants in his office. From attempting to become a terrorist, to being wrongly imprisoned under a draconian anti-terrorism law, to becoming a champion of human rights (particularly of the Muslim minorities in India), Shahid traces the inspiring personal journey of a boy who became an unlikely messiah for human rights, while following the rise of communal violence in India.(c) UTV

Critic Reviews for Shahid

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5)

  • Mr. Mehta has done something difficult. He has made a film of conviction that's neither plodding nor preachy.

    October 21, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Shahid is gritty, wrenching and powerful.

    March 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Thankfully, the director doesn't over-dramatize events. He uses a restrained, subtle narrative to tell the audiences Shahid's story, rarely judging his motives or intentions.

    June 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Mehta's drama establishes strong humanistic qualities and a deeply personal protagonist before launching into the courtroom fireworks.

    October 23, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The film, which apparently was made by Mehta to battle growing negative allegations against the late Shahid, includes numerous fictionalized moments. Solidly acted by all, Shahid would no doubt have benefited from a more documentary feel.

    Shouldn't have been fictionalized to the extent to give it a biased form. Can't understand how others enjoyed it so much.
