Reliance Home Video today released the Home Video of Nana Patekar’s latest action – drama “Shagird“.
“Shagird” is a film by Tigmanshu Dhulia. Tigmanshu was born and brought up in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, on 3rd July, 1967. He was interested in dramatics from his early age, and after doing amateur theatre he joined NSD (National School of Drama) in 1989. Since then Dhulia has several big-grossing, critically acclaimed credits to his name, as producer, director and writer for both silver screen and Television.
“Shagird” is a fast- paced action-packed cop drama that unfolds in the capital city of Delhi amidst the power of paisa and politics.
Delhi Police Crime Branch Officer Hanumant Singh (Nana Patekar) – a respected yet feared officer whose tactics and ethics are questionable, mentors Mohit (Mohit Ahlawat) a new junior officer in his team. Their ideologies cross paths when a notorious gangster Bunty Bhaiya (Anurag Kashyap) enters the fray. Together, Hanumant Singh & Bunty Bhaiya work for power hungry politician Rajmani Singh (Zakir Hussain), who rules the state using unfair means and will not let anything or anyone come in his way.
In this nexus, who stands right and who stands wrong? Who wears a mask and who comes out a winner forms the rest of the story.
Watch the film for its topicality. “Shagird” holds up a hard-hitting mirror on India: corrupt to the core, India: permanently scarred by the unholy nexus between tainted politicians, ruthless gangsters and dishonest cops. Punctuated with thrilling chases and shoot-outs in the crowded by-lanes of Delhi, Shagird is another interesting film from maverick director Tigmanshu Dhulia – Nikhat Kazmi – Times of India
“Shagird“, directed by the talented Tigmanshu Dhulia, is not the stereotypical film on cops and gangsters; nor can you draw parallels with any film from the past. The twists in this film are hard to foretell… therein lies its strength. – MSN Entertainment
“…here’s a film that deserves to be watched for its captivating screenplay and striking performances – Taran Adarsh – Bollywood Hungama
“Shagird” has moments of power and a rough, sweaty texture that throbs especially as the camera snakes through the bylanes of Old Delhi. – Anupama Chopra – NDTV
“Shagird” is available on DVD (Rs.199) & VCD (Rs.99).
Tigmanshu is known as a writer & director who makes meaningful films in Bollywood. Add Nana Patekar to the project and you have a DVD that you simply cannot afford to miss out buying
