Director: Bassam Tariq
Starring: Riz Ahmed, Anjana Vasan, Aiysha Hart
Star and co-writer Riz Ahmed (The Night Of, Nightcrawler) reaches new depths as British-Pakistani rapper Zed in the raw and personal, Mogul Mowgli.
Bassam Tariq’s visceral directorial debut perfectly showcases Ahmed’s many talents as it immerses us into the musician’s life just as it starts spiralling out of control. After two years based in New York, Zed has not seen his family in London for a long time.
Now, on the cusp of success with his first European tour, he must learn to reconnect with his parents and reconcile his true identity – starting with a return to his real name, Zaheer. But when Zed succumbs to a debilitating illness, he is suddenly plunged into the unknown. Not only is he forced to reckon with his decreasing mobility, but he must make sense of the haunting apparitions and heady hallucinations he experiences in his vulnerable state.
Richly exploring the importance of cultural heritage, Mogul Mowgli is an electrifying and sincere drama that beautifully captures the textural details of contemporary life as it clashes against family history. Also featuring Aiysha Hart (Hope Gap) and Nabhaan Rizwan (who stars in the upcoming BBC show, Industry).
