Hey Ram!

Special Screening

In Hindi

A taxi driver laments the use of mobile phones as he believes they drive a wedge between people and prevent them from communicating face-to-face. His passenger takes the hint, and the two begin to converse about life. But suddenly their journey comes to a halt when a makeshift roadblock stops the pair and begins questioning them. Inspired by actual events, ‘Hey Ram’ is an example of what happens when differences in faiths and beliefs are used as a basis for persecution.
