About the Film:
Firdaws is a film that doesn’t question the existence of the promised paradise for a human bomb, but turns the idea on its head by asking what if it was real and yet, one wouldn’t get the ‘pure bliss of forgetfulness’?
Firdaws has a strong humanitarian & anti-terrorism message inspired by an 18th century Urdu couplet by Mirza Ghalib:
“Humko Maloom Hai Jannat Ki Haqeekat Lekin, Dil Ko Behlaaney Ke Liye, Ghalib Khayal Achchha Hai”. (Translation: “I know the truth about heaven. But for the appeasement of heart it’s a nice thought, Ghalib!”)
