Mumbai in December
|A city waking up|
In keeping with our new tradition of seeing a movie a week, Anna Shetty and I decided to see “The Help” currently playing in our Mumbai multi plexes. Surprisingly for an English movie morning show this show had a sizeable audience of 30 people and what was more suprising was that the audience was predominantly female. Of course considering the subject a topic dear to our hearts : domestics and the problems of getting them, this movie was a scary reminder of how close we are to losing this oft taken for granted luxury.

One of the major topics of discussion in Indian households is criticism of the house help. Both of us were engrossed by the movie. We loved the story line and even though the story line was predictable, the performances were engaging . I can see this movie getting an Oscar nomination.
|Good morning Mumbai!|
Definitely a movie not worth missing.
