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

Awesome!
19 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Speaking from the heart, It was the first movie after Ram Gopal Verma's , "Satya", that brought tears to my eyes. I literally wept, although I consider myself to be "Macho" like every other Indian guy!

Hats off to "Mahesh Manjrekar".

The only thing I really didn't like seeing in the movie was the actress "Anousha Dandekar", I know it was probably to show that the "Writer Brother" did well in his life, but still, im sorry to say she looks like "na ghar ka na ghat ka" maybe that was what the director wanted.

But every time I see her on-screen, or tele(MTV), I remember her remark about Mahatma Gandhi, on a show she hosted so long ago, and well it hurts.

Overall, the movie was eye watering, and very close to heart. Thank you to everyone who made this happen.

I will go buy the DVD, although I can easily download it over the net, I won't, this DVD will be a part of my very small collection of favorite movies.

Thats how much I liked it ;D
