SHAH is based on the true story of legendary Pakistani boxer Syed Hussain Shah.
Hussain Shah started his life as a homeless child on the streets of Karachi and went on to dominate Asian boxing for nearly a decade before becoming the first South Asian in history to win an Olympic Bronze Medal in boxing at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. He remains the only Pakistani athlete to win an individual medal at the Olympic Games in the more than 50 years. Within a few years after his historic achievement, Shah was forgotten by the government and media and fell back to a life of abject poverty before vanishing from the public eye completely, joining the ranks of countless forgotten heroes of Pakistan.
The film SHAH is a small budget, independent Pakistani film produced by Logos Film & Media, a small team of debutante filmmakers from Lahore with the aim of bringing the incredible story of this Pakistani hero back to its people.
