Academy Award Winner - Best Foreign Language Film 1989. "Impressive" -- Time Out. "One of the best films of the year" -- Chicago Sun The story of Krishna, a 10 year-old boy who comes to Bombay dreaming of making 500 rupees to take home to his mother in the village. Once in the city, he is immediately surrounded by its madness and cacophony; policemen, madmen, middlemen, the trading of drugs and flesh, impossible movie fantasies. And everywhere there are children like himself, surviving and succumbing to the appetite of the city. Although carefully scripted, the multi-award winning Salaam Bombay! is a marriage of narrative and documentary. The 'actors' are all children from the streets and the entire film is shot in working-class neighbourhoods, railway platforms and the re-light areas of bombay. While celebrating the spirit of survival in Bombay's streetchildren, Salaam Bombay! is also a story of a world that denies its children the luxury of childhood, a world which is no longer innocent.
