Set in Kashmir and inspired by true incidents, Aijaz Khan’s film Hamid is a fictional tale with local flavour and universal appeal. An adaptation of Amin Bhat’s play ‘Phone No. 786’, it’s a well-crafted portrayal of a boy’s loyalty to his father and his determination to get him back to make his family whole again.
Seen through the eyes of Hamid, 7-year-old son of Rehmat, a shipwright (a person who makes boats for a living), the film is a testament to the lives of those waiting for their loved ones to return. It reveals their pain and grief.
To balance the Yin and the Yang of the story, we have Abhay the Indian soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, deployed there to bring peace.
