Mumbai Meri Jaan, a tribute to the never-dying spirit of this dynamic city called Mumbai. A film that every Citizen should watch! Released in August, 2008, the movie has won a lot of accolades and is going to be telecasted on UTV Movies on 22nd March at 8 P.M.
The serial bombing of suburban trains in Mumbai in 2006 is a nightmarish incident the nation would never forget. And Mumbaikars still get gooseflesh recalling the ghastly incident. Mumbai Meri Jaan recreates the incident on celluloid, but is not about terrorism per se. It talks about the aftermath of this tragedy and how the lives of five people, not remotely connected or associated with one another, gets affected in the process.
The movie explores the impact of this devastating incident through the lives of a TV journalist (Ali Khan
">Soha Ali Khan
), a patriotic corporate man (R Madhavan), a retiring policeman (Paresh Rawal
), a rookie cop at the dawn of his career (Vijay Maurya), an angry Hindu fanatic (Kay Kay Menon
), and a coffee-vendor struggling to make ends meet (Irrfan Khan).
The film follows the lives of these people as they tackle the aftermath of a fatal incident that brings out the best and sometimes, the worst in them.
