Based on the novel by the eminent Marathi writer Jayawant Dalvi…
This is a story of the shanties and slums that dot every mega city anywhere in the world. A story of the search for shelter, security, and the unalloyed small pleasures of life. Young Benwa (Ranjit Choudhary) and his amma (mother) (Smita Patil) live in a small hovel in one of the teeming slums of Bombay. Amma dreams of a shack of her own, a son by her truck driver lover, and the small pleasures of food, drink and love making. Benwa dreams of being like Looka (Naseeruddin Shah). A man who solves his problems with a flick of a knife or the flash of a smile. A series of events, violent, seemingly without provocation, unconnected, brings about an astounding climax.
