Kaveree Bamzai is of the opinion that Dhobi Ghat is like fresh air crowded Mumbai. “Some movies knock you out with a punch, others gently lay you down, soothe your fevered brow and lull you into a dream. Movies about Mumbai tend to do the former. But Kiran Rao's deeply personal Dhobi Ghat takes you by the hand, leads you to its doorstep and then leaves you to gawk, with pleasure," she wrote, adding, “Rao's film is like fresh air, as elusive in Mumbai's leaky chawls as in its smoky drawing rooms."
Well, going by the excellent reviews that film critics have showered, it looks like Dhobi Ghat will rock at the box office.
It is all about four people from very different backgrounds, whose worlds intersect and leave them forever altered. As they find themselves drawn into compelling relationships, the city finds its way into the crevices of their lives, separating them even as it brings them closer. It is directed by Kiran Rao and features Prateik Babbar, Aamir Khan and Monica Dogra in the lead roles.
