Watch Shanghai (2012) on DVD, Blu-Ray or VCD

It Is The Best Hindi film I’ve Seen This Year – Anupama Chopra

Mumbai, July 24, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Reliance Home Video and Games & PVR Home Entertainment is all set to release the critically acclaimed film ‘SHANGHAI’ on home video. The film has been directed by National award winner director Dibakar Banerjee and stars Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol & Kalki Koechlin.

The movie releases today on Blu-ray™, DVD & VCD in India.


“Shanghai is a political thriller that looks at how politics – the tools of power- is remote controlled by the governing class over the poor, uneducated masses in India. This is the background to the Indian adaptation of the story loosely adapted from the book Z, written in 1966 to reveal the facts behind the assassination of a prominent Greek Liberal MP in 1963. It is the story of State oppression and collusion in crime – a theme I think very relevant to contemporary India. The protagonists of Shanghai, instead of being all good, or all bad are a mix of courage and cowardice, ego and desire, ambition and conscience – normal Indians, trying to get by with the bewildering challenges of modern India.” - Dibakar Banerjee
