Dozakh - In Search of Heaven - Review by Renu Mahajan
On May 23rd Hidden Gems showcased Dozakh-in search of Heaven. Writer, Director and Producer Zaigham Imam has truly created one of the best films on religious tolerance. The actor and co-producer Pawan Tiwari has brought the character of the Muslim cleric alive and real on the screen. The innocent son of the cleric does not comprehend the intolerance of religion and is fascinated by the colorful stories weaved by the Hindu priest and his own school teacher, thus going against his father. It is a simple slow moving film that highlights the relationship between the two neighboring religious communities through the antics of the little boy of the Cleric. This film is bound to touch deeply and shake up the psyche of people intolerant toward other religions.
