Salim was born lame. He lives with his family and is looking for a suitable groom for his sister. In the process, Salim gets pulled into a life of crime and communal violence. He wants to reform but there is no redemption for him.
Set in a ghetto of Mumbai, Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro is a fearlessly honest portrayal of the economic disparity and socio-cultural deprivation that defines the existence and lives of people living there. One of rare films addressing the complex predicaments of urban Muslims in India.
