Director: Dibakar Banerjee
In a bustling Indian city gearing up for the latest celebrated political elections, 4 individuals find themselves embroiled in a gruesome game of crime and politics. A young activist encounters a shocking and disturbing road accident which leaves a prominent political figure in a critical condition. A lone girl on the street believes it to be a murder and a porn film maker claims to have documented proof that will bring the government down. The government then brings a high ranking bureaucrat for some damage control. As days go by, the individuals discover the government's secret: a vision of a new metropolis, a pipe dream - a dream called ''Shanghai''.
A country pretending to be another, brighter country, being shown up by a film that itself borrows form and content from another country. Yet so strident is Dibakar Banerjee`s voice as a filmmaker that even this adaptation - of Vassilis Vassilikos` Z, about a wholly different time and political situation - is turned into a strikingly relevant story of our times and our crimes.
unpredictable ending... The concept, direction, acting everything is awesum... I expect sanghai2... The unpredictable ending was not suited... Please bring Sanghai 2...
Shanghai This movie is not for the masses......Dibakar surprises us with every movie of his.... Great work.... must watch.... for real movie goers....

Good Movie for those who love Politics I liked the movie, as its real picture of our India. Its been years since we got independence, but still the Politicians are eating us, day by day & hour by hour, you can see the petrol hike recently. How a politician can go to any extent is shown in this movie. Good Work over all & specially Abhay deol.....Well Done!!!!!
Abhay/Emran good as usual Must watch, politics at its best.
a bit boring the movie is boring at the begining it takes the plot nearing the interval and in the end a big letdown..
