Salaam Bombay! (1988)
The story of Chaipu, a youngster thrown on the streets of Bombay, and his struggle to keep it all together. Excellent performances all around. I especially liked Chanda Sharma as 'Solasaal' and Hansa Vithal as her daughter 'Manju'.
This film gives the creepy feeling you aren't watching actors but a movie made of people going about their daily life.
Even if you don't like the story the cinematography is stunning. Filmed on location in Bombay the movie gives an unvarnished glimpse of many places you'd be unlikely to visit on a vacation there.
The credits state 43 locations in 43 days.
I've seen this movie so many times I don't need to read the sub-titles anymore as I know the dialogue by heart.
A masterpiece. Easily one of the top 100 films of the last 50 years.
