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.

A Tribute Not Just To Mumbai But Can Also Be Applied To Others As Well.
26 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only had inkling on what this would be about and that's all. But was totally amazed when I saw the contents of it – some reality which I haven't seen in a Bollywood film for a very long time.

The title is derived from the golden oldie, "CID" and sung by the late Mohd Rafi and Geeta Bali and composed by the O.P. Nayyar and it is a favourite song of mine and above all it describes the city of Mumbai. While this film, which depicts on how the people of the city were able cope with the bomb blasts that took place on July 11 2006. It deals with peoples' emotions and how they are able to handle it.

A Policeman, who is about to retire and how he is able to reflect on his time in the force, an aspiring journalist who covers tragic stories but unknown to her, her world crumbles when she faces such situation herself, an unemployed computer engineer who suspects people around him to be the terrorists but soon realises that not everyone is and finally a coffee vendor who is struggling to survive – they are the characters that all come together in this movie, a magnificent tribute to the city of Mumbai. But looking more further afield, this movie can also apply to other cities in this world that has changed so much since September 11 2001, cities such as New York, London and Madrid, who have faced the same dilemmas. This is what the director Nishkant Kamat has tried to portray.

Soha Ali Khan, has once again excelled like she did in "Khoya Khoya Chand" as the aspiring journalist, Kay Kay Menon, as the young unemployed computer engineer is very convincing in his role as a person who suspects people around him. Finally, Paresh Rawal, as the Policeman who is about to retire is just superb and is able to portray as to how his character feels about what he has achieved during his time in the force. But what is the icing is the song that comes in at the end when the credits begin to roll in.

This is a very appealing film that is worth watching and is capable of putting other movies, such as "Singh is Kinng" several steps behind.
