‘Salam – The First ****** Nobel Laureate’ is the definitive story of Abdus Salam, the first Pakistani to win the Nobel prize. The film captures in vivid detail his life’s journey—from a small village in Pakistan to worldwide scientific acclaim—and his fraught relationship with his homeland, where he faced rejection for being a member of the “heretical” Ahmadiyya movement. (75 mins).
