Days ahead of Hamid's Friday release, Duggal tells mid-day, "I'm worried about how it will be perceived. This film is a human story set in a conflict situation. When things get politicised, it's necessary to understand what common people feel in the moment. I hope people can have this conversation and not be outraged." Aijaz Khan's offering traces the story of eight-year-old Hamid, who learns that 786 is God's number, and decides to reach out to the almighty by dialling this number, in an attempt to connect with his father, who, his mother tells him, is deceased. When the call is answered, two lives shattered in the strife of Kashmir find a way to be complete again.
