Known for his offbeat cinema like “Hazaaron Khwaishein aisi”, “ye saali zindagi”, “chameli” Director Sudhir Mishra was blown away by the film “Aligarh” and said it is a rare film.
At the special screening of the film “Aligarh” film maker Sudhir Mishra said, “It’s a very rare film. It is just not merely a good film.”
Talking about the film the talented film maker further added, “It was very difficult part and not easy to do it. One person who is trying to understand the complexity inside him and he is stunned to see people have an objection on his confusion. The perplexity of the sensitive character was so beautifully played by Manoj. That is a difficult part. The ambiguity of the Rajkumar Rao part is amazing.”
Impressed by the Manoj Bajpai fearless performance he said, “In India when you do little good acting people appreciate you a lot. But playing this part fearlessly is really incredible. Manoj was always being a good actor but now a day I noticed that he is at his peak as an actor who can play character with much depth. The court scene really touched me when he was just doing nothing and his eye speaks so loudly.”
Directed by Hansal Mehta the film “Aligarh” is based on the real incident of Dr. Srinivas Ramchandra Siras, who was suspended from his job for his sexual orientation. Manoj Bajpai will be seen portraying the character of Dr. Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras whereas actor Rajkumar Rao plays a Journalist in the film.
The film is slated to release on 26th February
