Aligarh

HANSEL MEHTA
India, 2015
120 minutes, Color
Official website

An aging professor, Dr. Siras, is suspended from Aligarh University after being "caught" in a sting operation while having sex with a male partner. A young rookie journalist, Deepu, uncovers this story and investigates the murky suspension. Through a series of interviews, an unlikely friendship develops between the professor and the journalist. In the professor, Deepu discovers a friend and father figure who will leave an indelible impression on him. With Deepu's support, the reluctant professor fights a court case against invasion of his privacy and violation of his fundamental rights. Dr. Siras valiantly tries to find refuge in an intolerant, homophobic society. Aligarh gently explores the inner world of a man who just wants to be left alone and an outside world that will just not let him be.—Manjula Kumar
