Ghode Ko - follows four main characters: a pickpocket, a vendor of sweet and savoury snacks, a labourer-activist, and a conductor of 'Heritage Walks'. We see Old Delhi through their eyes - their lives, hopes, aspirations, dreams - and hear it through their various languages and dialects. Patru, the pickpocket, decides to take people on alternative walks, showing them the underbelly of the city they think they know, but this lands him in trouble with local merchants and the police. That's when he finally decides to conduct one last 'Dream Walk'. It is here that we enter the subterranean consciousness of the city's migrant population. Together, these walks create a visual and aural history of Old Delhi from different points of view. And when Lali, the labourer-activist, too joins the fray, giving a speech urging workers to unite, he lands them all in jail.
