What would the world of Mumbai and movies be without struggle and success, sorrow and serendipity? Ghoomketu answers that in its own fun, quirky manner!
Loaded with warmth and care, Ghoomketu is essentially a movie about the movies.
AB AAni CD is about the neglect of the aged since this is no society for old men.
Shirish Kunder had a delicious premise at his disposal but an uninspired casting decision proves to be a major misfire!

Extraction is shot in Bombay set in a lane that could easily pass off for back-alley of what used to be Elbo (and is now Glass) Room in Bandra.
Everything about Ranjan Chandel's Bamfaad feels familiar, the performances, the setting, and even the conflict. There's hardly any surprise to be had here!
