Storyline

[THIS PLOT SUMMARY CONTAINS SPOILERS] Shortly after 1800 hours, 11 July 2006, Mumbai was shattered by seven bomb blasts on Western Railway stations: Matunga, Mahim, Khar, Bandra, Jogeshwari, Borivali, and Bhayandar. It took the Police and ambulance over an hour to attend at various sites. This incident changes lives of Thomas, originally from Chennai, who sells tea from his bike; Rupali Joshi, a TV News reporter, who has to deal with the death of her to-be spouse, Ajay Kumar Pradhan; Suresh, in debt, starts to suspect all Muslims, especially Yusuf; Inspector Tukaram Patil, about to retire, goes about collecting bribes as usual, much to the chagrin of his embittered, honest and soon to-be suspended subordinate, Sunil Kadam; while Nikhil Agarwal, a Nationalist and environmentalist, debates whether he should re-locate to the United States, along with his pregnant wife, Sejal.

Truly Awesome Movie

How many time do you get to see movies which actually touch your heart not just once but through each and every character of the movie ? Well.. Mumbai Meri Jaan is one of those movies. The beauty of the movie is the realistic characters, realistic dialogs, good story, powerful acting, amazing direction, emotional climax and the message it conveys. This story starts from the day 7/11 when Mumbai serial blasts happened and ends after a week from that. The movie tells about the impact of the 7/11 bomb blasts on people's life, how it affected every character's life and finally how they manage to keep the 'Mumbai Spirit' alive. Excellent performances from Irfan Khan, KK, Soha Ali Khan, Paresh Rawal and Madhavan. A movie that truly deserves to be Tax-free and best movie of the year award. My personal second choice will be 'Aamir'. I salute the 'Mumbai Spirit'.
