     15Om Puri plays Rajkaran Yadav, an emigré taxi 
     16driver from U.P. living in Bombay’s notorious 
     17Dharavi slum. His wife Kusum (Azmi), living in 
     18a one-room tenement with his mother, works 
     19to contribute to her husband’s ambitious dream 
     20of owning a factory. However, the business 
     21enterprise is a disaster as the taxi driver gets 
     22embroiled with gangsters, forcing his wife to 
     23return to her first husband. The ending shows 
     24Yadav as boundlessly optimistic as he was at 
     25the outset. The film tries to transform the 
     26conventions of realism usually deployed for 
     27such stories (cf. Chakra, 1980) with surreal 
     28effects including the hero’s oscillations 
     29between fact and fantasy (the latter with Hindi 
     30superstar Madhuri Dixit). The opening 
     31sequence announces the film’s intentions as a 
     32Hindi movie being screened to slumdwellers in 
     33the open air is abruptly ended when the screen 
     34catches fire and the audience riots.
