ALIGARH WILL TUG AT YOUR HEARTSTRINGS

aligarh-full-movie-review

CAST:  Manoj Bajpayee, Rajkummar Rao, Ashish Vidyarthi

DIRECTION:  Hansal Mehta

RATING: ****

The film is inspired by the real life ordeal of 64-year-old Professor Siras who was suspended by the Aligarh University for being homosexual. He was physically and psychologically tortured for his sexual preference by the society. Hansal Mehta captures the inner turmoil and unrest of Siras in the most understated manner. Bajpayee’s tearful eyes display an array of emotions — sorrow, vulnerability, angst and fear. Aligarh stays with you much after you see it, especially for Bajpayee and his nuanced portrayal of a man brutally put to shame by an intrusive and insensitive society. Aligarh’s heart lies in the beauty of its silences and the unspoken words and unrushed emotions shared between its lead characters. The movie is subtle and redefined.
