Murad, a young man from the Mumbai slums, struggles to pursue his dream of becoming a rapper despite the cultural and familial pressures to follow his expected path. Based on a true story, Zoya Akhtar modernizes the Bollywood genre with a hip-hop musical romance that challenges Indian social conventions from the caste system to arranged marriages. Both a critical darling and a box office success, the film swept the Indian film awards, becoming the most honored film in Indian history with 13 wins, including Best Film, Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay, and Cinematography.
