The film has its own pace and fabric as it narrates the story of 64 year old Prof Siras of Aligarh University who was suspended from the organization for being a homosexual. Manoj Bajpayee plays Siras who teaches Marathi in Aligarh University. An incident changes his life overnight when members of his staff intrude his house and catch him having sex with another man. Aligarh is a powerfully sensitive cinema, never ever dared before on the canvas of Bollywood.. Aligarh is like that hot lava cake which will melt you with it’s incredible portrayal of a person who is a homosexual, yet an outcast, he is blessed with the notion of love, yet afraid of the society, who is declared an immoral, yet teaches us lessons of morality which no book can.
