In this intimate drama, circumstances draw together four people from different castes - which would normally preclude them from forming friendships.

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 naïve 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.


This is still a love story, both for the city of Mumbai and for the kind of love that is as unaccounted for as it is freely given.
