A short film in the docu-reality genre, this takes an offbeat look at the traffic in Indian cities, particularly Mumbai. We travel with an office-goer as he rides his motorcycle to work on a Monday morning.
A typical trip to the office includes, among other things, snaking his way through traffic snarls, breaking lanes with impunity, driving on the pavement and racing along the wrong side of the road. All in a day’s work, it seems. Unsuspecting participants in this drama are members of the public, who are captured by the camera going about their business.
Through our protagonist’s eyes, the audience thus gets to see, close up, urban life at its worst or perhaps its most dynamic – depending on your viewpoint. But what about our office-goer – does he finally make it to work or not?
