Rahul, a mischievous adolescent roams the rain soaked slums of Mumbai with Arbaaz, a balloon selling boy. They escape harsh reality of life by roasting stolen potatoes; stealing an auto rickshaw for a joyride; chasing girls, etc.

User review:

Shooting handheld in natural light, Singh’s camera snaps Mumbai’s swamp of trash and dirt with documentarian truth, but still imparts a sense of wonder and naive possibility to the viewer. The slum-kids utilise discarded materials as toys, at one point using a cardboard box filled with rocks as a prank on the more privileged children of the city. Singh captures the slums of Mumbai in their dirty reality, but with a giddiness that translates as a sense of childlike excitement.
The two child actors – Rahul Bairagi, and Arbaaz Khan, playing his impish best friend – are exceptional, giving the kind of fresh, ego-free performances only a pair of non-professionals can. The sight of Rahul jumping into a river/garbage dump or lifting potatoes while Arbaaz distracts the seller have a rough poetry, Singh locating the beauty in the moment, a sense of joy in scenes that could feel much bleaker.
