Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost – 2003, is a film full of fun from the start to the end. It is a laugh riot but also has the undercurrent of grim truths about the society.
The story is set in a Rajasthan village that has no electricity. Kanji (Abhishek Bachchan) is a young man who is working in the city as a servant. One fine day, Kanji happens to visit his village to meet his grandfather. While visiting the village, Kanji also takes along a small gift for his grandpa. Meanwhile, electricity has just been provided to the village by the authorities and so the life has changed a lot for the residents there.
But the mystery gift is such that it changes things for the village overnight. The once peaceful and simple village becomes a place of chaos and excitement. Now, what is this gift? To know that, you will have to wait till the movie is out.
