Mumbai Meri Jaan

Hmm another Hindi Movie that I saw recently that as been based on the 11 July 2006 Mumbai train bombings.. its something like DHOBI GHAT .. ..though DG movie is more on about the place Mumbai and how those 4 peoples lives revolve around the City , MMJ the story revolves around 5 people and how their life is effected and how they react to the situation to the 11 July 2006 Mumbai train bombings in their own way .....Towards the end the films shows how no matter what happens ..we as Indians will stand together as one nation , It also shows how easily you can misinterpret situations and people . The character Suresh (played by Kay Kay Menon) is a struggling computer tech who spends his time loafing at a local cafe and criticizing Muslims. ..easliy mistakes some young muslims men to have been apart of the bombings ..where in the end one of the Muslim  actually turns out be a  devotee of Sai Baba !...I would put it out as a good movie to watch ..again shows a lot about mumbai life and also gives you a bit of insight to the law and force department through the life is Sunil Kadam (Vijay Maurya), who struggles with the corruption and inefficiency of the Mumbai police force and his boss, Tukaram Patil (Paresh Rawal), who is nearing retirement. who before his retirement ..admits to the fact that he has not done his   duty as a true policemen and how he wished when he had the chance he could have done a lot better , The scene where Patil (Paresh Rawal) stops Suresh(Kay Kay Menon) and lectures him on communal harmony in the Police van is really good .which ,as a result Suresh befriends the Muslim man, who he suspected to be a terrorist . You kinda have immediate respect for Paresh Rawal's character ...regardless of the fact that he severed his duty as corrupt police officer .Loved the ending that showed .. doesn't matter what community or background we are from we as  INDIANS will stand united  at the face of difficult times
