Dhobi Ghat (FILM)

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Ki­ran Rao had left a lot of peo­ple won­der­ing when she said Mum­bai was the fifth char­ac­ter in her de­but film. But one look at Dhobi Ghat, and all doubts were put to rest. “Mum­bai is my muse and has in­flu­enced me and my work,” she added. The film was shot en­tirely on real lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing the teem­ing dhobi ghat from which it gets its ti­tle. “We have tried to por­tray Mum­bai in all its vi­brancy and com­plex­ity,” says the di­rec­tor. “There only a few lights, a 16-mm cam­era, the cast and the crew, the Mum­bai mon­soon, and me.”
