BOMBAY TALKIES is experimental cinema with four different directors telling their tale. This experiment was first attempted in DUS KAHANIYAN in December 2007. While the regular cinemagoers will find it hard to digest, those who prefer the 'festival circuit' will like it. For one, these are four stories told by directors whose narrative styles are poles apart. Secondly, as soon as one story is over, you are in the process of absorbing another, without getting time to savor the one just over.

Having said that, there's not much to savor except the brilliance of Nawazuddin Siddiqui. If only for his performance and a brief cameo in the same frame by Sadashiv Amrapurkar, you will not mind walking in.
