Black and White is a 2008 Bollywood movie. It was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Anurag Sinha, Shefali Chhaya, and Aditi Sharma. The movie explores the life of a suicide bomber who is sent on a mission to Delhi to detonate a bomb near Red Fort on its Independence day.[1]



Rajan Mathur (Anil Kapoor) is a professor of Urdu who teaches in Dr.Zakir Husain College and lives a respectful life in Chandni Chowk a district in NewDelhi with his wife Roma Mathur (Shefali Shah) who is a social activist and feminist, and thei young daughter

Professor Mathur meet's a young adult Numair Qazi (Anurag Sinha) who informs him that he is a victim of communal riots in Gujarat. Hiding the truth is that he is a suicide bomber of an Islamic fundamentalist group and is ordered to set off a bomb near Red Fort on 15 August celebration.

Numair manages to get refuge in the Professor’s house and succeeds in winning the trust of the couple. While assisting Numair to get an employment entry pass for the 15th of August celebrations at Red Fort, Professor Mathur introduces him to a variety of people living in harmony in Chandni Chowk regardless of faith.

Numai remains focused on his goals.

During his stay with the Professor, Numair gets caught up in a tight spot as to whether he should carry out the orders of his superiors or not. Although he himself is a deep rooted fundamentalist, he sees this area as colourful and loving. There is no Black and White. Nonetheless, he goes forward to accomplish his mission.

What is worrying young Numair? What are the sacrifices of the Professor and his wife for him? What will eventually happen on Independence Day?

It’s a story, a notion, a message never seen before on the Indian screen with an exhilarating experience in this entertaining yet unique style of Director Subhash Ghai.
