Celebrating Cinema in our lives, marking the beginning of a New Era! Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, four top notch directors come together to redefine Indian Cinema.. Watch 'Bombay Talkies' and witness the revival of Indian cinema.
Four directors - One story! These stories are the ones they've always wanted to say, what happens when they all get together to direct one?
Hindi cinema is too voluminous a medium, and now a century old, to try encapsulating its glory in 25 quick minutes.

Straight up, Karan Johar`s film smashes his own mould - forget about loving your parents, Johar shows a gay youth Avinash (Saqib Saleem) pummeling his father while quitting home. Avinash befriends glamorous Gayatri (Rani), wife to Dev (Hooda) with whom she has passionless, infrequent sex. Avinash meets Dev - sparks fly. While Saqib convincingly portrays odd-ball Avinash, Hooda simmers with tangible tension. It all ends in tears, delightful coming from the archetype of extra cheese himself. This is Karan Johar unleashed - and impressive with his taut film. He`s followed by Dibakar Bannerjee, adapting a Satyajit Ray story, featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Purandhar, dreamer with a theatrical past - and a tiny Bollywood role. Dibakar quietly underl
