The Bombay police move quickly and a curfew is imposed in the more sensitive parts such as Mohammed Ali Road, Jogeshwari, and Dharavi.

A stunning adaptation...Intimate and absorbing performances leave you emotionally staggered!!!
8 January 2000 | by (Sheffield, UK) – See all my reviews

A stunning adaptation depicting real-life events in the famous Bhatt family. A denial of familial truths conspires to affect the lives of a young boy and his mother.

Recommended Indian cinema for fans of the 'less-Bollywoodised'.
