Shahid traces the true story of slain human rights activist and lawyer Shahid Azmi. From attempting to become a terrorist to being wrongly imprisoned under a draconian anti-terrorism law to becoming a criminal lawyer Shahid traces the inspiring personal journey of a boy who became an unlikely messiah for human rights while following the rise of communal violence in India. This story of an impoverished Muslim struggling to come to terms with injustice, inequality and rising above his circumstances is an inspiring testament to the human spirit.

Shahid was a proof that a common man can accomplish a lot by perseverance. I highly recommend this movie esp. to those from Indian subcontinent..

One Docudrama View of Hindi/Muslim Indian Relations

Every so rarely often Indian studios create a film that takes a hard look at any one of the many issues that that country faces. The other 95% of Bollywood is debilitating junk being sold to a poorly educated audience. This film follows the life of Shahid Azmi, a Muslim who after a brief experience with a militant training camp, becomes a lawyer who advocates for Indians railroaded by a corrupt police/legal system. Well acted, directed and scripted story of his life and the cases he counsels.
