It gives filmmakers the freedom to think out of the box. Though how far that freedom is taken is entirely a matter of individual vision. Dharam Sankat Mein has some lucid moments of self-questioning where the religious divide is pungently scrutinized and satirized. Hilarity at the cost of organised religion is not an easy target to achieve for any filmmaker.
This films achieves a remarkable threshold of thoughtful humour. Though a lot of it is gradually eroded by over-punctuated satire, this is that rare film which takes potshots at the religious divide without offending anyone.
In totality, the film 'religiously' serves as an eye opener to a handful of religious myths and facts. And for this, the full credit goes to the film's director Fuwad Khan, who, after working as a cinematographer on many films, makes his directorial debut with DHARAM SANKAT MEIN.
Despite having touched upon a very religiously sensitive topic, he has tried his level best to keep the film as simple as possible and doesn't go overboard.
On the whole, DHARAM SANKAT MEIN should be watched for its sheer simplicity and also for the message that the film's makers have tried to convey through this film.
