Bombay Diaries - Dhobi Ghat - Mumbai Diaries

Kiran Rao – India – 2011


CHF 14.90 / EUR 13.80

Kiran Rao's Mumbai Diaries is easily one of the most dynamic cinematic portraits of that decaying, vibrant, impossible city ever made; it treats the city itself as a character. The story begins with a woman pointing her video camera out of a taxi into a gray city pelted with rain – we later learn she is a young Muslim bride, Yasmin – and then shifts attention to introduce Hindu artist Arun (Amir Khan), a U.S.-born Indian investment banker, Shai, on sabbatical to pursue photography; and Munna, a poor boy with dreams of Bollywood stardom.

In the intersection of these four people and one city, Rao locates a host of dreams, desires, fears and tragedies with stories touching on art, photography, poverty, crime and Mumbai’s indelible sense of mystery.
