One thing is for sure. By defining DHOBI GHAT as MUMBAI DIARIES for the international audience, Kiran Rao has brought into relief one of the very important genres of chronicling and their role in construction, definition and accentuation of social, cultural and political history. DHOBI GHAT has traveled into hitherto unexplored areas of the city called Mumbai and has become another treatise to the experience called Mumbai. Indeed, Mumbai is an experience and Kiran Rao has presented her experience about the city, and has given it another interpretation.
