Synopsis

Marvellous hand-painted animation captures the dramatic streets of Mumbai in this tale that places the cheerful excesses of Bollywood side by side with the gritty reality of life on the streets. Strung along this explosion of colour, music, and emotion is a garland of characters, among them Kamala, a beautiful flower-seller whose daydreams are like Mughal miniatures accompanied by her lush singing; the aging Mrs. D’Souza, a former film star who inhabits the silver-screen past as much as the present; and Salim, a handsome, down-on-his-luck young Kashmiri with the spark of a Bollywood hero in him. Inflected with complex social issues – child labour, religious conflict, and the exploitation of women – Bombay Rose is at its core a story of love, loss, and hope, unbounded by time or place.
