"Stop trying to kill your husband," Shiv (Naseeruddin Shah) tells Tara (Kalki Koechlin).

Aligarh” is a movie that might require some amount of patience. The two-hour runtime is not long by Bollywood standards, but there is a meditative quality to it that seems to stretch time. Long silences and a lack of background music characterise most of the scenes, and the understated acting only enhances the minimal nature of the film.
