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

a well told story
14 May 2010 | by vikasrsSee all my reviews

I saw the movie after i read the review on IMDb. and moreover i was waiting to watch this movie... so finally i saw this movie and i kind of disagree with the above review.. i agree that it was about only a family.. but it was a family of mill workers.. i think this movie revolves around the mill workers and a story told well about the past.. Now everyone cannot be James Cameron.. to make AVATAr after TITANIC and beat his own record.. Life in MUMBAI remains the same for all stories.. that city is out of this world... even if 'Johnny Depp' had to make 'shantaram'. i am sure it would have had most of the same thing... now one cant predict anything different from a story about MUMBAI... The characters played fairly a decent role to bring about the feelings and behaviors of the then mill workers'. It is simply a story of how the poor mill workers where cheated to bring about the consumerism to make money.. at the end those people suffered and most of the people from MUMBAI, enjoy it today...whatever... IT IS A STORY WELL TOLD..
