I saw Pankaj Advani's film SANKAT CITY and what struck me most about the film was its anarchic splendour. The underlying theme is the need for cash, and lots of it, by people to either repay debts, to rebuild lives or to escape to greener pastures.

CHECK OUT: Kundan Shah-SANKAT CITY is a never ending fun ride

Pankaj's world is of thieves and con artists, film producers, fading stars, financiers and God-men, rag-pickers and cab-drivers, underworld dons, hit-men and whores, shady businessmen and shady suitcases, shady bars and dives and even the city's vast and stinking dumping ground.

As we journey through the frenetic lives of all the protagonists we realize that the film becomes a metaphor and a tribute to a city that really should be a corpse yet refuses to die.
