Aligarh refers to Aligarh Muslim University in India. A film that dares to address the passion that dares not speak its name. To thicken the masala (spoiler alerts!!!): Brahmin linguistic prof in flagrante with a Muslim rickshaw driver: is the driver a bait? a sting from jealous academia?
Along comes a rookie journalist who tries to make sense of all that: great courtroom drama about caste, politics, religion, and most of all: INTOLERANCE.

A good story! Based on the true events of the Indian professor who was prosecuted due to his homosexuality. He led a quiet life, and was well liked. HIs homosexuality was an excuse to get rid of him; although, there were other reasons! A slow-moving at times! Yet, a well worthwhile cultural movie! I recommend it!
