Mumbai se... is about a village of Rajasthan and revolves around the lives of its dwellers. Vishal Nihalani  (son of Govind Nihalani) produces the film whereas debutante Apoorva Lakhia  directs the flick. Apoorva  is no novice to films, infact he has been an assistant director to Hollywood films like "The Perfect Murder" and "Flawless".  The movie features Abhishek Bachchan along with Ex-Miss Universe Lara Dutta  in lead roles. Music is by Anu Malik, Ranjit Barot  and Amar Mohile  and lyrics by Sameer. 

The story is about one of the thousands of villages in India, who don't have access to the basic amenities of life. 

The film deals with a month in the life of Kanji  (Abhishek Bachchan), whose innocent gift to his grandfather's recently electrified village, sparks a power struggle and ends up with laugh out loud humor. The modern world takes over the lives of these villagers, which had been alien to them so far.
 The film is about the old and the new, the rural and the post-modern. At the core of the film is a simple drama of the heart, enriched with acute observations of the village psychology, an accurate portrayal of the little-known aspects of Indian Cult
