      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Shahid is gritty, wrenching and powerful. Rated: 4/5 Mar 18, 2019 Full Review Rachel Saltz New York Times Mr. Mehta has done something difficult. He has made a film of conviction that's neither plodding nor preachy. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 21, 2013 Full Review Anna M.M. Vetticad annavetticadgoes2themovies Hansal Mehta has resisted the temptation to make a high-decibel potboiler, delivering instead a disconcertingly real and highly effective film. Rated: 4/5 Jan 15, 2023 Full Review Shilpa Jamkhandikar Reuters Thankfully, the director doesn't over-dramatize events. He uses a restrained, subtle narrative to tell the audiences Shahid's story, rarely judging his motives or intentions. Jun 5, 2017 Full Review Simon Foster Screen-Space Mehta's drama establishes strong humanistic qualities and a deeply personal protagonist before launching into the courtroom fireworks. Oct 23, 2013 Full Review Brandon Judell CultureCatch The film, which apparently was made by Mehta to battle growing negative allegations against the late Shahid, includes numerous fictionalized moments. Solidly acted by all, Shahid would no doubt have benefited from a more documentary feel. May 22, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      R. G This movie is the text-book definition of how realistic and powerful movies can be. Rajkumar rao has to prevent the growing numbers of unprecendented, illegal & hostile criminal operations that put innocents lives at jeopardy. Best debut movie in its repective decade. A must watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review Audience Member 'Shahid' carries a realism that was once all too rare in Hindi cinema, but is now more common thanks to films like this that paved the way. Somewhere between 'Pink' and 'Court', it combines an unflinching look at the legal system with some compelling courtroom drama. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Shahid : An icon of Hope in the field of Law and Justice Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I wished 'Shahid' wasn't so much about the courtroom drama as much as it is about the real life. But it is powerful as it is gritty and stunning as it is persuasive. Rajkumar Rao commands when he is on screen, and ensures that Hansal Mehta's strong script is brimming with life and style. That's my idea of powerful and important cinema. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is brilliant work - among the money rolling Bollywood industry - by hansal mehta & team. This movie is a revolutionary piece of art. It revels the bitter fact behind the Indian democracy. This movie frames the injustice & hatred against Muslims in India. moreover it is based on a true story of Adv. SAHID AZMI who has executed by BJP goons (Current Ruling party of India). Shahid azmi faced a lot of discrimination due to his Islamic identity. finally he made himself a lawyer and has fight against evil. he has saved 17 innocent mens including victim of Mumbai blast, 2008.
