Rendered in deep, sumptuous hues, Bombay Rose presents interlacing tales of love and loss. Thoughtful beauty Kamala scrapes together a living to keep sister Tara in school. Salim, a handsome Kashmir refugee, falls for Kamala, and is willing to risk everything to be with her. Meanwhile, Tara takes lessons from aging film star Shirley, who aches for a bygone life of splendor and desire. This exquisite, hand-painted animation is by turns a celebration of Bollywood fantasy and a gritty, heartfelt portrait of the city from which it takes its name.
“The world created by Gitanjali, crafted with love, colour, empathy and gentleness, will stay with you long after the film is over. An unhurried visual delight, Bombay Rose is an absolute treat!”
