Critic Reviews for Mumbai Diaries
An odd amalgam of soap opera and street-level realism, with, alas, the former trumping the latter.
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.
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.
A beautiful film about loneliness,loss,and love.About four people's lives whose worlds intersect,interlock,leaving them forever change,and looking at life in a whole new way.Very emotional involving. Directed by first-timer and Aamir Khan's wife,Kiran Rao,she has given us an stunning debut,a brilliant film,breathtaking,with the whole cast making it's sucess possible. A film with a soul!
