A film from the National Award Winning Team Of Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao
6 August’ 14, Mumbai: Shemaroo Entertainment releases Citylights on Home Video. From the banner of Fox Star Studios in association with Mahesh Bhatt, Citylights is a touching story of love and survival amidst of the chaos and blinding lights that surround us. It is another collaboration from the National Award winning team of Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao – who gave us the heart-wrenching 'Shahid'.
Deepak (Rajkummar Rao) – a debt ridden man from a small town in Rajasthan - along with his family leaves the quiet of his rural existence to come to Mumbai, in search of a brighter future. The dream of an improved life soon comes crashing down as he finds the city of lights harsh and unforgiving. With no job in hand and unable to provide for his family, Deepak's wife Rakhee (Patralekhaa) takes up a job of a bar dancer at a seedy restaurant. Driven by desperation and ultimately determination to overcome the odds Deepak eventually finds a job with perils that are far beyond the obvious. His immediate employer, Vishnu (Manav Kaul), is a street-smart and seemingly regular man, but who unknown to Deepak, plots a devious plan that includes Deepak and will endanger his and his family's existence. Suddenly Deepak will find himself in a vortex of deceit and danger, struggling to keep his family and himself safe.
Laced with the soul-stirring music of Jeet Ganguly (featuring the super hit track – Muskurane Ki...) - at heart, 'Citylights' is a poignant love story between a husband and wife, between a man and his family. It is also a thriller that explores the depths of human nature – a drama about our world, our times and the ultimate emotion that drives every relationship – love.
Citylights is not only worth watching, but also worth showing to your friends. So what are you waiting for, get a copy today for yourself and your friends.
The DVD and VCD of Citylights is economically priced at Rs 299/- and Rs 125/- respectively.
