A dramatic and fluid animation style wonderfully captures the streets of Mumbai in this tale that places the romantic excesses of Bollywood side-by-side with the reality of life on the mean streets of one of India’s largest cities. It’s love at first sight when a flower seller sees a young woman across a busy road, but the rocky road to happiness is strewn with surprises and disappointment fit for a first-class silver-screen drama.
