Blinded by the Light (2019)
Javed, played by Viveik Kalra, is a British boy who lives within a strict traditional family of Pakistani descent during 1987. Javed does not find a place where he feels comfortable during a hectic time full of racist attacks, economic crisis and values. Although he writes poetry, he does not feel he has a voice enough to make a difference, but everything changes when one of his classmates teaches him the music of the group “The Boss”, with which he immediately identifies. Javed sees himself in the singer of the group, Bruce Springsteen, a working-class boy who wants to change the world with his lyrics. Through this encounter, Javed will find an escape route to express his voice and repressed dreams.
