At a time when jingoism, communalism and unwarranted censorship are posing real challenge to the democratic fiber of our nation, freedom of expression and unity in diversity, Aligarh is a must watch.

Hansal Mehta's treatment of a sensitive, not so comfortable and socially taboo topic is commendable. His choice of two high-octane actors like Manoj Bajpai and Rajkummar Rao makes Aligarh a delight to watch. The deadly duo - Hansal Mehta and writer Apurva Asrani takes the viewers through an exploratory journey within, to feel and understand what it means to be alone at the autumn of one's life and that too when you are perceived as the 'other' by a majority in the society just because your sexual orientation doesn't toe the line. Hats off to Apurva Asrani for an honest and compelling story. Hansal Mehta's Shahid, City Lights and now Aligarh will be always remembered in the history of Indian cinemas for sure.

Trivia:
Film's director, Hansal Mehta took to social media and press to vent his anger, threatening that he will go to the Appellate Tribunal and appeal the adult rating of the trailer arguing that an "important subject like his film's should reach everyone

On January 31, 2016, a controversy broke out as the film's trailer was rated with an "A" certificate by India's Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which would allow the trailer to be screened on television only after 10 PM IST, citing that the film's theme and subject, which is related to homosexuality, is against India's culture, and kids and teenagers should not be allowed to view it

Nawazuddin Siddique was first approached to play the lead role but declined. This was due to a problem he had with Hansal Mehta during the shooting of Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar in 2000
