Rajkummar Rao, who was one of the underrated actors until he won the National Award, impresses thoroughly in the trailer of Hansal Mehta’s film Citylights.
The movie is about a happily married couple (played by Rajkummar Rao and debutante Patralekha) and their daughter. Rajkummar runs a garment shop in a Rajasthani town. Misfortune strikes them when his shop is confiscated by the creditors to whom he owes money. The husband-wife duo then decides to move to Mumbai for a better life.
But does a better life await them? Homeless and hungry in an apathetic city, they are compelled by circumstances to make choices that will alter the course of their lives.
Directed by Hansal Mehta whose last film Shahid has just won a National Award, Citylights shows us the face of a city where basic human dignity is compromised with just to make ends meet. It’s an indictment of a city that can take away more than it gives.
Rajkummar Rao impresses with his incendiary performance in the trailer.
'Citylights' is produced by Mukesh Bhatt and made under the banner of Vishesh Films. It’s slated to hit theatres on May 30.
