Vinod informs Jogi that he has incriminating evidence against the IBP and wants to sell Shalini the tape. Ahmadi's wife Aruna agrees to lead a media campaign demanding the truth, though she seems uninterested. The campaign forces the CM's office to set up an inquiry commission headed by Krishnan. Krishnan finds that the police are hiding evidence, so he summons Chavan , who is also uncooperative. Shalini meets with Vinod but leaves when Vinod says that he won't give the video for free. Later, Vinod is found dead in what looks like an accident.
At a later Morcha rally where Jogi is filming, Damle, head of the local party leader Deshnayak's men, informs him that he knows about the tape, subtly threatening him. Jogi is about to pack up and leave town, but he and Shalini discover the identity of the goons. Shalini and her group presents Krishnan with the CD of evidence linking IBP goons to the accident. After viewing it, Krishnan sends out a summons to the leader Deshnayak, who rejects it in a public rally, sparking up a riotous mob. Shalini visits Jogi, and Morcha thugs attack the studio. Jogi and Shalini manage to escape and hide out on the roof until morning. In the chaos of the riots, Bhaggu is found dead, ostensibly killed by Damle's men because of Bhaggu's had threatened Damle that he would spill the beans about attack on Dr.

Shalini receives a panicked call from her maid Gauri, who says that Gauri's family is in danger. Shalini and Jogi sneak over to Gauri's place, where it is revealed that Jaggu is Gauri's husband. Jogi remembers that Vinod kept a backup of the incriminating video, and sneaks back to the studio to get it. Krishnan meets with the Chief Minister about the inquiry. The Chief Minister, buoyant because she has an opportunity to eventually become, presents Krishnan with the approval of his Stockholm trip, and a high promotion. She also asks Krishnan to stop the probe and hand over all his findings to the CID of the State Police, which shall now investigate the case further. Multi copy paste keygen download.
Jogi finds the CPU amid the studio's wreckage and has a narrow escape from the thugs chasing him. They all show Krishnan the video, which establishes that Deshnayak conspired to have Ahmadi killed and the Chief Minister was complicit in this plan. Krishnan confronts Kaul with the truth, and Kaul threatens to ruin Krishnan's career. Undeterred, Krishnan blackmails Kaul, until Kaul finally leaves to talk to the Home Minister's secretary. In the hospital, Ahmadi's family decide to take him off life support.

Reception Critical reception Madhureeta Mukherjee of ToI gave it 3.5 out 5 stars and said 'Whether Shanghai is off-beat or mainstream is debatable, but if you thrive on rustic realistic cinema, however heavy-duty – this (Shanghai) is your pick'. Of rated the movie with 4.5 out of 5 stars: 'Director Dibakar Banerjee loves this country dearly and Shanghai is his guttural, anguished wail.
But being the super-smart, light-touch director that he is, he conducts the last rites of our beloved country to the loud, cheery strains of the song Bharat Mata ki, Bharat Mata ki. We are in mourning, but we are conducting Bharat Mata’s antim sanskar in a medieval fashion. We are dancing, screaming. And though the lyricist has added “jai bolo” at the end, that’s not the sentiment of this song, or our mourning, or the film.
The correct rendition of this song would end with the words “le lo”. Of Bollywood Hungama rated the movie with 4 out of 5 stars: 'On the whole, SHANGHAI is undeniably one of the most politically astute films ever made. It keeps you involved and concerned right from its inception to the harrowing culmination. This is not your usual Bollywood masala film, but a serious motion picture that has a voice, that makes you think, that makes a stunning impact. A must watch!' Of gave three and a half out of five stars and wrote 'Dibakar Banerjee succeeds in cranking up the tension effortlessly.' Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN gave it 3.5 stars out of 5 saying 'Shanghai' is consistently watchable.
It’s a good film from one of Hindi cinema’s most exciting filmmakers, just not great.' Controversy The song 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' (Victory for Mother India) had irked a group called, whose president Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga tweeted: “We are giving open warning to Shanghai Director to remove Bharat Mata Ki Jai song from the movie. Otherwise movie will be banned.
