Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Unjustly accused of stealing and cast out of his home village by his family, 11‐year‐old Krishna (Shafiq Syed) joins the swathes of dispossessed street children in the slums of Mumbai.

Sleeping in the rubble of the city, he struggles to survive in his merciless new environment. Forced to associate with the criminal underworld, Krishna’s childhood innocence quickly wanes as the reality of his uncertain future becomes painfully apparent.

Salaam Bombay! is the heartrending and impassioned debut fiction feature by director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding). Shot on the streets of India’s second‐biggest city and starring real‐life street children, the film is an authentic and unflinching portrayal of the country’s impoverished underbelly.

Critically lauded and Oscar‐nominated, Salaam Bombay! is available on Blu‐ray for the first time in the UK.

A Classic

Mira Nair's Salaam Bombay is a classic about Boys from Bombay Slums which entered for Academy Award Nominations too. I had a dvd from NDFC (India) but this came for pre-order from BFI. I jumped with joy as I was missing Irrfan Khan and it gave me a opportunity to see him again. It's a treasure for me.
