A must watch !
“When you feel like crying, just urinateâ€, says a senior constable to his subordinate in the film adding, â€œThat way you drain the excess water from your bodyâ€. This line acts as a metaphor to the pissed-off attitude of an average troubled citizen, about which he chooses to do nothing. That gives the gist of Mumbai Meri Jaan , a film that touches the lives of an assorted array of cosmopolitan citizens, in a way never witnessed before.
Cast: Paresh Rawal, Soha Ali Khan, Kay Kay Menon, R. Madhvan, Irfan Khan
Mumbai Meri Jaanâ€™ talks about the July 11,2006 Mumbai train blasts. The film explores the impact of this devastating incident on the lives of the people of Mumbai. From a brilliant broadcast journalist(Soha Ali Khan) to a patriotic corporate man(R.Madhavan); from a retiring policeman(Paresh Rawal) at the twilight of his life to a rookie cop(Vijay Maurya) at the dawn of his career; from an angry and xenophobic unemployed young man(Kay Kay Menon) to a coffee-vendor(Irrfan) struggling to survive and belong: â€˜Mumbai Meri Jaanâ€™ follows the lives of people from all strata of Mumbaiâ€™s bustling society as they tackle the aftermath of a fatal incident that brings out the best and sometimes the worst in them.
Kamath has paid tribute to the residents of Mumbai who witnessed the devastation. The movie consists of multiple stories that run parallel to each other but have common backdrop.
Suresh (Kay Kay Menon) is a Hindu radical who has a skeptical outlook towards the minority community. Nikhil (R Madhavan) is a contemporary corporate guy, is progressively patriot and is laced with a civic sense. Rupali (Soha Ali Khan) is a TV journalist and considers this profession as a freedom of expression. Tukaram Patil (Paresh Rawal) is a senior constable, who is paired along with a patrolling partner Sunil Kadam (Vijay Maurya) who is a rebel against social injustice and corruption. There is a nomadic coffee vendor Thomas (Irffan Khan), who has his own ways to get back at the aristocrats. Each of these characters is swathed with different stories but these are linked with the train blasts. And every story makes a statement.
