Great friendship prevails over tremendous adversity in 1980s India.
Set in Bombay during a time of political uproar, four childhood friends are forced to confront adulthood when the volatile upheaval of the 1982 Bombay Mill Strike shatters their innocence and threatens their lives. But the boys persevere, and the story becomes a remarkable account of the triumphs of love, brotherhood, and the human spirit. Director Atul Taishete debuts with a story that juxtaposes two worlds: the spirited coming-of-age story of the four boys against the drama of an era of deafening workers' riots and gangsters. A glorious tribute to a turbulent time in history, Vartak Nagar shines with electrifying emotional drama and radiates sheer heart. - Kady Le
