About the Movie
Available Same Day As Theaters. In New York arrives a fundamentalist Muslim man imprisoned by his brutal past. His mission: kidnap a peaceful Muslim scholar and kill him. In New Delhi a closeted homosexual girl leaves her orthodox cop father's home. Her mission: kidnap her activist bisexual lover and marry her. Set in the most archetypal cities of economic and patriarchal control, four characters come face to face with gruesome acts of violence in a battle of identities against unfreedom. The choices they make when they are most cornered in life expose the blemished reality of contemporary world. UNFREEDOM is an urgent contemporary thriller about a society torn apart by political, religious, and sexual turmoil. Shifting between New York and New Delhi, the film juxtaposes two powerful and unflinching stories about religious fundamentalism and intolerance, one of which follows a Muslim terrorist attempting to silence a liberal Muslim scholar, while the other is about a young woman who defies her devout father and escapes an arranged marriage because she is secretly embroiled in a taboo lesbian romance. In this searing portrait of the polarized world we live in, all four characters go to their absolute limit—and beyond—in their struggle to defend their deeply-held and conflicting viewpoints on freedom, faith, family, and love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A hard-line thriller derailed by messy editing and narrative silliness.
Rotten: This two-for-one bundle of South Asian polemics panders to Western values and preys on Western ignorance. Why patiently comb through a culture or a religion for ambiguities when it's simpler to just dismiss it as barbaric?
Rotten: Unfreedom quickly devolves into an absurdly pessimistic provocation.
Rotten: Raj Amit Kumar's bold but ultimately muddled attempt to address extremism and intolerance.
