    Movie: Mulk
    Director: Anubhav Sinha
    Cast: Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Rajat Kapoor, Prateik Babbar, Manoj Pahwa

    Director Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk cannot be judged simply as a movie but as a voice of a particular community in India, which is facing prejudice. Mulk shows an extended counter-narrative of a campaign called #TalktoMuslim.

    After the trailer launch, director Sinha was trolled on social media for being a ‘Muslim sympathiser’. The movie delivers a message that not every Muslim is a terrorist, but most of them are being framed as extremists, as shown in Karan Johar directorial ‘My name is Khan.’ However, Mulk is not a romantic film and uses hardcore family drama as ammunition.

    The story of ‘Mulk’ revolves around a Muslim joint family, residing in a Hindu-majority locality of Varanasi. The elderly man of the family Murad Ali Mohammed (Rishi Kapoor) is a respected lawyer. The story takes an ugly turn when his nephew Shahid (Prateik Babbar) is declared a terrorist and is eliminated during an encounter by Anti-Terrorist Squad official Danish Javed (Rajat Kapoor).

    Meanwhile, deceased Shahid’s father and Murad’s younger brother Bilal (Manoj Pahwa) have been apprehended on charges supporting the terrorist activists. Murad, then, fights for his brother in the court, after which he also becomes an accuse in the case. The interesting part of the movie shows up when Aarti Mohammed (Taapsee Pannu), Murad’s Hindu daughter, decides to handle the case and commits to provide justice for her family.

    First half will serve you some family drama, and the second half revolves around the serious courtroom scenarios. If you wish to experience some revelations and eye-opening dialogues, go for Mulk, a dark drama.
