Shanghai Dreams in Downtown India

Director Dibakar Banerjee’s film Shanghai hopes to raise a pertinent question about the inexorable march of economic progress that sometimes mows down the human values and lives itself.

The movie starring Emraan Hashmi, Kalki Koechlin, Abhay Deol, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Farooq Shaikh and Pitobash Tripathy, tells the story of three individuals fighting against an intractable, corrupt, exploitative system to expose the ugly truth that’s often glossed over with the sheen of ‘democracy’ and ‘progress’.

In his director’s note, Dibakar Banerjee writes: “Shanghai is a political thriller that looks at how politics -- the tools of power -- is remote controlled by the governing class over the poor, uneducated masses in India.

“The suave, elite, seemingly benign governing class takes decisions which essentially benefits and perpetuates its own interests while deeply hurting the uneducated, unaware urban poor by leaving them vulnerable to the manipulations for votes. As a result, world’s largest democracy sometimes translates in the rule of mob.”

Shanghai is loosely based on the 1966 novel ‘Z’ by the Greek author Vassilis Vassilikos.

Check out the film’s synopsis ahead:
