The Engaging Plot that Won't Let you Blink!
The movie revolves around the story of a mute shop assistant who accidentally witnesses a murder. The question that arises is: Would he go report the crime or keep to himself? Would he fight his conscious given that there is no clear witness protection policy in place in India? What unfurls in the next 25 minutes is the struggle of making a hard choice that Kanwal, the mute chemist shop assistant, goes through. Should he listen to his conscience or keep mum on the insistence of his elderly parents?
With the movie, the Writer & Director, Ojaswwee Sharma tries to highlight the issue related to witness protection in India and that it is important in a country like India where there is no uniform act on witness protection. There have been innumerable cases of witness intimidation, loss of honour, property and even life. The film brings out and highlights all of it through the sheer brilliance of Kanwalpreet Singh who is also supported by Jagdeep S Lamba with his intense acting. "Zubaan has been a very special film from day one to the release and even post-release. As it was very hard for my director to convince me of the kind of character I have done, it is totally opposite to my personality. So, our faith in each other created magic! His faith in me made me do more than I had thought." explains Kamalpreet Singh.
As per the director Ojaswwee Sharma, "The intention was and had always been to make a film that speaks for itself. I am fortunate that things finally happened and the way Zubaan traveled do much to prestigious festivals. Now, it is the film of the audience and the viewers and only they can take it further. I am proud of my team and the people who have been with me and believed from day one! Awards are overwhelming, but the acknowledgment and appreciation that has been pouring in from the viewers cannot match anything in the world at the moment! Give it a watch."
