Mumbai. A city bustling with people from all walks of life - people with dreams, ambitions, angst, art, and perpetual struggles. Of them all, Dhobi Ghat deals with the story of four individuals whose lives and worlds intersect in usual yet extraordinary way.

The movie stars Aamir Khan, Prateik Babbar, Kriti Malhotra and Monica Dogra in leading roles. Kiran Rao, Aamir Khan’s wife and assistant director of Lagaan, makes her directorial debut with the film that’s been shot in the narrow and crowded alleys of Masjid Bandar area of Mumbai.

The film has already been to some international film festivals and has been described as Kiran Rao’s love letter to Mumbai. Rao herself has admitted that Mumbai is the fifth character in the story.

Aamir Khan as Arun

Arun is a recluse. Mostly he stays holed up in his room and paints endlessly. He stumbles upon the video diaries of a woman named Yasmin.

Prateik Babbar as Munna

Munna is a dhobi with the dream of becoming a filmstar someday. He idolizes Salman Khan. His world changes when he meets Shai.

Monica Dogra as Shai

Shai is a banker on a holiday in Mumbai. She wants to preserve her memories of Mumbai in a camera. She gets interested in the local dhobi Munna. Through her lens she also peeps into the life of the reclusive painter Arun.

Kriti Malhotra as Yasmin

She’s a newly married Muslim woman who records her daily life in Mumbai on a video camera to send the tapes to her brother.

Synopsis:

Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai diaries) is the story of four people from very different backgrounds, whose worlds intersect and leave them forever altered. As they find themselves drawn into compelling relationships, the city finds its way into the crevices of their lives, separating them even as it brings them closer...

Fragments of their experience - seen through a naive video diary, black and white photographic images and painting - form a portrait of Mumbai and its people bound together as they journey through longing, loneliness, loss and love.

The film has music by Gustavo Santaolalla and cinematography by Tushar Kanty Ray.
