Professor Mathur soon comes across a young boy called Numair Qazi (Anurag Sinha) who introduces himself as a victim of communal riots in Gujarat.

But in actual fact, he is a suicide bomber commissioned by a Muslim fundamentalist group to detonate a bomb near Red Fort on 15 August.

During his fifteen day roller coaster journey, Numair manages to take shelter in the Professor's house and wins the trust and fondness of the couple.

While helping Numair to get an employment entry pass for 15 August celebrations at Red Fort, Professor Mathur introduces him to the warm and loving people of Chandni Chowk who coexist with fun, music, love and colourful events and festivals irrespective of their religion.

Numair is astonished with some of the characters he meets in Chandi Chowk.

These include Shagufta, a modern Muslim college girl, the Professor's sharp tongued wife Roma, Rahat a Sufi pop singer, Miya an 84-year-old who is full of patriotism and the fun loving Sardar Kirtan Singh.

But for Numair, he must keep his mind focused on the mission as he struggles to carry out his orders from his superiors.

Amidst all the tension, he gets caught in an emotional dilemma whether to go ahead with his mission.

Despite his deep rooted fundamentalist beliefs, he sees this as one of the most colourful and loving areas. There is no black and white.

Nevertheless he moves on with his mission.

What is disturbing the mind of this young lad who has come here to attack?

Doesn't the sacrifice of the Professor and his wife mean anything to him?

Black n White is a story with an underlying message never seen before on the Bollywood silver screen.

The film is directed by one of Bollywood's most respected directors, Subhash Ghai.

A drama destined to be popular at the box office, it is being released by EROS International in the UK cinemas.
