Category : Movie/
Language : Hindi/
Production : Bollywood/
Target : Islamophobia/ Liberalism/ Profanity/

A movie completely shot around Muslim families and locality which had nothing to do with Muslims in specific. The movie has two top star cast Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. The movie is about passion in Murad (Ranveer Singh) for singing and rising, whereas his family are shown as traditional Muslim, specifically his father who is shown as a harsh, women dominating person, marries a second wife, a young lady and brings her in the same small slum house, beats his existing wife and wants Murad to blindly follow what he says.

Murad has Muslim friends who are also thugs , who steal cars and sell drugs through children. Murad has a girlfriend , Safina (Alia Bhatt) whose father is a doctor in the locality and religious family with her mother keeping close eyes on her. Safina wears Hijab when in the locality but as she moves out and flirts with Murad, she removes her Hijab and when it is time to go home she wears Hijab. Murad gets opportunity to produce his songs through a non-Muslim online contact and an American non-Muslim lady who wants produce an Album and Murad gets attached to her as well.

On one hand Murad refuses to drink alcohol but is involved in alcohol parties , dancing and Safina also present. The Rap songs which Murad is producing is presenting the atrocities, suffocation which as a youth he is facing which is primarily due to orthodox nature of Muslim family and society. The film in a subtle manner arouses the Muslim generation to move towards liberalism and break Islamic limits, and they can just preserve their name sake Muslim identity as well. A very brilliantly screened Anti Muslim movie disgracing the Muslim community in India specifically in Mumbai and showing their youths the path of liberalism.
