(Danis Tanovic, India/France 2014, 94 minutes, subtitles)
Smartly-executed by Danis Tanovic (an Oscar winner for No Man’s Land) he balances both the inspirational true story of the whistle-blower at the heart of the Nestle baby-milk scandal and the wrap-around story of how films that question corporate irresponsibility are squashed by legal threats. This skilfully captures the texture of the cramped houses and jumbled lives of the aspirational Pakistan family whose favourite son happily graduates from naive small-time drugs salesman to bribing doctors for Nestle. As a man who's just trying to do the right thing there’s a winning earnestness to Emraan Hashmi‘s performance as endearing super-salesman Ayan who risks everything by speaking out.
