How do the citizens of Hyderabad experience the escalation of Hindu-Muslim riots and the subsequent curfew, which takes over the city? What happened to this city follows the rise of fundamentalist organisation and speech and its use of moments of economic crises, unemployment and a wide spread insecurity in a disintegrating city, which ultimately leads to a state of emergency in 1984. While capturing a very crucial historical moment, the film succeeds in combining a participant, observant and poetic approach and hereby presents an astonishing alternative to the argumentative political documentaries more widely made in response to communal politics in the 1990s.
