Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro (1990)
Also Known As: Don't Cry for Salim, the Lame
Category: Feature Film
Salim, a young man with a limp, inhabits a twilight zone. At one level, he belongs to a respectable, proud, though desperately poor family. Salim's roots go deep into this congested, impoverished Muslim neighbourhood. But Salim has also discovered another world, a world of deceptive charm and fatal allurement - organized crime, where a little intimidation, flashing of a knife, unspoken threats of concrete 'mob' action, bring in quick, easy bucks. Tears, and the price to be paid, come later.
