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, Krishnas 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 Indias second-biggest city and starring real-life street children, the film is an authentic and unflinching portrayal of the countrys impoverished underbelly. Critically lauded and Oscar-nominated, Salaam Bombay! is available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
