Who killed Bombay, once India's trend-setting city and commercial capital? Its politicians or the underworld? When did this city of gold turn into a cemetery of dead souls and dreams? Is there any hope left for the city?
These questions lie at the very heart of the city's tragedy. Seeking answers, journalist Pinki Virani travels through many Bombay's to record a medley of voices that lament the loss of a vibrant way of life and indict those responsible for this state of affairs.
'Once Was Bombay' is an evocative and disturbing portrayal of a great city whose glory days are now a distant memory and which will need a miracle and great dedication on the part of its inhabitants to be reborn.
