Big city, small fries, gloom and doom
Hansal Mehta’s new film Citylights is about desperation, cloying desperation. Mumbai, ever faithful to loss, change and deceit, is the culprit. Deepak (Rajkummar Rao), a bankrupt sari seller from rural Rajasthan, arrives in the city with his wife Rakhi (Patralekha) and a beautiful daughter around seven years old. Chicanery is round the corner; strangers dupe the unsuspecting family in the next few hours.
