  • Inshallah, Football / $9.20
  • Director:- Ashwin Kumar

    Basharat is an 18 year old soccer player coached by a gritty couple from South America. He has been selected to play in Brazil. This is his big ticket out of a state ravaged by years of brutal insurgencies — except he is being denied a passport by the government of India. Basharat’s father, Bashir, was a militant who surrendered and spent years in jail, endured torture at infamous interrogation centers of the same government. According to the unwritten rules in Kashmir, an ex-militant’s family is almost never granted a passport — that document of belonging issued by a country that claims Kashmiri identity as part of its own. The film was originally refused a certificate (banned) by the Indian censor board, and later awarded an ‘A’ certificate. A must watch for every citizen concerned about the heath of Indian democracy.
