2017 Drama 84'

Director
Kamal Musale
Reward
Best Indie Film at the 2017 European Cinematography Awards (IMDB)
Best Screenplay at the Indian Cine Film Festival in 2017
A soul is visiting unconscious bodies in the city and looking back in time to understand what happened to them. A compassionate, poetic, and realistic look at what caused these ordinary lives in Mumbai to be disrupted by a typical problem of India’s contemporary society.
” In the Bumbai Bird’s title, there is Bumbai for the unity of place and Bird like Charlie Parker: Kamal Musale has indeed composed his aerial film as a jazzman. From his improvisation was born, and that’s the height of his performance, a formidably mastered work, which seems to have been previously entirely written and drawn as if Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s Amores Perros had been reincarnated in India. “
