This is a synopsis of 'Parzania'. Be sure to check the review first on IndiaGlitz!
There is a world where we all live in. And then there is a world that children build for themselves. A world that is selfless, happy and doesn't comprise of any evils whatsoever.
This was the world of Parzan [Master Farzan Dastoor], a 10 year old kid, and he named it plain and simple - PARZANIA!
The elder son of child of Cyrus [Naseeruddin Shah] and Shernaz [Sarika] who were also the proud parents of an eight year girl called Dilshad, Parzan was extremely pleased with his Parzania which had chocolate buildings and ice cream mountains. On the other hand Cyrus was a local projectionist while Shernaz was a practical woman who even after eleven years was still charmed by her husband's charisma.
Together they all made for a happy family in the city of Ahmedabad and followed a religion that was practiced by a minuscule number of people and was neutral to religious politics.
In their lives enters Allan Webbings [Corin Nemec] who was a unique personality in himself. While he was cynical, he was also hilarious. While he was intelligent, he was also constantly drunk. An American, he arrived in Ahmedabad in search of inner peace. He wanted to get answers to number of questions, most notably revolving around horrors that religious differences could create. He chose Gandhi as a subject and started living with Cyrus' family.
Just when it seemed that he was finally able to get answers to all the questions, a tragedy happened in the form of a bomb explosion in a train that killed Hindus and resulted in retaliation by slaying of thousands of Muslims. Riots followed soon after and within 24 hours, the city had terror all around. The same terror even entered Cyrus' own household as Parzan went missing.
A search begins - one by Parzan's parents and other by Alan whose is on a mission to uncover the truth behind the riots.
Inspired by a true story, Parzania is the breathtaking untold story of an event that changed the country and the world forever.
Produced by K.B.Sareen, Kamal Patel and Rahul Dholakia, Parzania is directed by Rahul Dholakia and has made festival rounds over the months. The film is now slated for a January release.
