Movie Info

Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries) is the story of four people from very different backgrounds, whose worlds intersect and leave them forever altered. As they find themselves drawn into compelling relationships, the city finds its way into the crevices of their lives, separating them even as it brings them closer... Fragments of their experience - seen through a na´ve video diary, black and white photographic images and painting - form a portrait of Mumbai and its people, bound together as they journey through longing, loneliness, loss and love. -- (C) UTVmore

The sex/class conflicts are way too twee.

An odd amalgam of soap opera and street-level realism, with, alas, the former trumping the latter.

[A] satisfying, well-acted drama.

Ms. Rao does have an ace up her sleeve, though: Prateik, who in his first lead role gives a nuanced, career-making performance.

With its key settings in a crowded, largely decrepit, congested yet beguiling, picturesque older portion of this city of 14 million inhabitants, the film is like a rich tapestry in which are interwoven the intersecting lives of three people.

Rao avoids high drama, and while there is humor, the film's tone is one of melancholy.

Audience Reviews for Mumbai Diaries

Not your usual Bollywood fare. Slow moving, low key, but at the same time intriguing. Excellent acting. Excellent overlapping stories. A very artistic film, without being snobby and boring. Nice to see some Bollywood without all the singing, and dancing. Personaly, I would prefer a little more of this type.
