Born in Bom­bay at the stroke of mid­night on 15 Au­gust 1947, the mo­ment of In­dia’s in­de­pen­dence from Bri­tain, a boy grows up with spe­cial pow­ers in this colour­ful magic-re­al­ist fan­tasy based on Sal­man Rushdie’s Booker Prizewin­ning novel. A vi­brant, vividly per­formed piece of sto­ry­telling.
