     11Benegal’s melodrama addresses the condition 
     12of Muslim refugees in Bombay, an issue made 
     13relevant by the Hindu Shiv Sena’s attacks on 
     14minorities in the city as alleged ‘Pakistanis’. 
     15Mammo, aka Mahmood Begum (Jalal), arrives 
     16in Bombay unannounced to stay with her sister 
     17Fayyazi (Sikri) and the latter’s orphaned 
     18grandson Riyaz (Phalke). She was evicted from 
     19her marital home in Lahore after her husband’s 
     20death. Arriving on a temporary visitor’s visa, 
     21she tries legally as well as through bribery to 
     22convert the visa into one enabling permanent 
     23residence, asserting her right to stay on as an 
     24Indian national. The story is told through the 
     25eyes of Riyaz, who initially resents her arrival in 
     26their cramped Bombay flat. Mammo is 
     27deported, but returns in the end, hopefully for 
     28good.
