Saayad is the story of two generations living together, but experiencing the world in very different ways. Whereas the influence of a sincere, hardworking friend transforms the lives of a group of friends for the better, the arrogance of, and lack of guidance for the newer generation sets another group of friends on a track of drugs, death and destruction. The generational clash reveals how moral authority has become corrupted in Nepali society, and how the alienation of the younger generation is pushing them to anarchy.
Acclaimed writer-director Suraj Subba 'Nalbo' has crafted a powerful coming-of-age moral tale, touching upon the dreams and heartbreaks of the young, and the improbable responsibilities of the more mature generations. Saayad is a rare gem in Nepali cinema.
