Our take

Through the exciting and intriguing exchanges of a self-proclaimed ascetic and a filmmaker, Kabir Mehta’s Sadhu in Bombay offers a satirical take on the shallowness of city life. As the narrative unfolds, this film becomes a visual essay on the manipulative nature of recording and story-telling.
