Cult films or commercially successful films: What does an actor/ star aspire for

Every actor worth his grain who may be immensely commercially successful aspires for a film which is critically acclaimed and establishes his or credentials as a performer par excellence. It has been there from the time, cinema made its debut, and the trend continues even to this day. It is more so pertinent in the case of female stars of the present times, who when they start reaching the wrong side of the age yearn and aspire for 'that' film which would become a cult film and establish them as one of the vital signposts in the cinematic oeuvre and history of the country.

DHOBI GHAT, Mumbai Diaries and Hindi cinema

One thing is for sure.

DHOBI GHAT: One more look at a city called Mumbai

Murzbaan Shroff, the writer based in Mumbai would be mightily pleased that the first story in his book BREATHLESS IN BOMBAY also is the name of the directorial debut of Kiran Rao, named as DHOBI GHAT. As Shroff has underlined in the story, DHOBI GHAT, is one of the biggest melting pots of cultural extravaganza in a city called Bombay aka Mumbai where the dirty linen is washed in the public and then packed and consigned to its original owners. DHOBI GHAT is also a microcosm of what city of Mumbai is all about, a platform where the caste and class identities subsume into each other once it picks up the cloth to beat it on the stone slab.
