Storyline

Today, there is hardly anyone who hasn't visited the swanky shopping malls, nightclubs, lounge bars, clubs and other such lifestyle destinations that sprung up across the centre of Mumbai. However, very few know that buried deep below these glittering edifices to consumerism lies the dark, dirty and painful reality of many thousands of mill workers who once worked the cotton mills in this very same area. Rising and toiling to the wail of the mill sirens each and every day, seven days a week, these workers embodied the true unbridled zeal and unflagging spirit of the city and played a pivotal role in the evolution of Mumbai as the modern day business capital of India. And then it suddenly was as if they never existed. Following the mill workers strike in the mid-80s, these mills began closing down rapidly and the mill-workers mysteriously disappeared. What happened to them, and where they went is one of the most shameful secrets that the city of Mumbai will have to bear for generations... Written by Anonymous

The story of Mumbai; From an industrial capital to the costliest piece of real estate.
16 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie starts as a flash back for a middle aged man who books a flat in Mumbai and recalls his younger days, when his father was a mill worker at the same property. Yes, it does sound like an Amitabh or Rajesh Khanna starer from the late 70s or 80s. The story line is simple, life and struggle of mill workers and their families.

The treatment is however new. Reminds us in parts of "Cidade De Deus" or City of God,an award winning Portuguese film on violent neighborhood of Rio De Janeiro. Mahesh Manjrekar is however no Fernando Meirelles, nevertheless it is a commendable effort.The movie may not be a 'Vastav' or 'Satya' but it is not far behind.The story line is fast paced, actions are real,emotional scenes do emote and all actors look genuine in their parts. I have personally liked the movie and am sure you would watch it and form your own opinion.
