Mumbai is a thriving metropolis that has long been known as the "City of Dreams" because it has a reputation for being a place where anyone can succeed. Dhobi Ghat released internationally as Mumbai Diaries in 2010 directed by Kiran Rao, shows an alternative aspect of the city that is not frequently depicted in mainstream cinema. The story traces the journeys of four characters as they struggle to overcome their individual obstacles while navigating the metropolis. A close-up view of Mumbai's underbelly, with all its social and economic inequalities is given via the eyes of these folks. The complex topics discussed in the film will be examined in this paper along with how they relate to the socioeconomic conditions on the outskirts of Mumbai.
