Synopsis: Dhobi Ghat is a little peek at life in the different social classes in Mumbai: Arun the painter, and his upper class world; Shai the NRI, on her sabbatical; Munna, the ‘dhobi’ (laundry guy) and rat killer; and Yasmin, the middle class housewife who moved to Mumbai when she got married.

Yasmin’s story is actually set before the movie starts, and is only shown through a series of home videos she makes as letters to her brother, which Arun discovers in his new apartment. The center of it all is the inter-class relationships, mainly between Shai and Munna, but also the connection that Arun begins to feel with Yasmin as he watches her videos. Aamir Khan does very well in conveying the evolution of this unusual one way relationship he builds. He is, as usual, at his best in this role.

Director: Rajkumar Gupta
Producer: UTV
Starring : Vidya Balan,Rani Mukherjee
Release Date: 07 Jan 2011
Genre: Social
Language: HIndi
Country: India
Synopsis: Rajkumar Gupta’s biographical look at Jessica Lal and her murder, No One Killed Jessica will hit cinema’s January 7th. The film stars Rani Mukherjee, who plays a hard hitting reporter and Vidya Balan plays Jessica Lal’s sister, who is determined to put the murderers of her sister behind bars. While the director has come out to claim that his film is simply inspired by the Jessica Lal case and is not a complete depiction, the plot bears an uncanny resemblance to the story.

Set in Delhi, the film will follow the trials and tribulations of the case as it was shut by the courts after they claimed there wasn’t enough evidence to punish the accusers. This led to a nationwide protest which forced the Indian courts to take another look at the Jessica Lal case. Jessica Lal was a model who lived in the capital and was murdered at a sociality party. Onlookers all pointed to a prominent politician’s son and while the case took years to solve, justice was finally served.
