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
