Shah-e-Samundar explores the contemporary role of Sufism in Mumbai city. With Haji Ali dargah and Mahim dargah, two of the most popular dargahs of Mumbai at its locus, the film is anchored in the legacies of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari and Pir Makhdoom Shah. It tries to understand the impact that these dargahs have on the city and on their visitors, through Qawwali, through humanitarian aid, and through the larger ideas and philosophy embodied by these spaces.
