Mumbai Masti
Mumbai Masti
Description
From the Jacket

Enviable, Desirable, Greedy, Extravagant. What Mumbai is city of contradictions, where the wealthy and the poor live flank by flank. City of Dreams that can be cruel to losers. Here bubbles a stew of communities each lending it distinctive spice that blend together to create a flavour that is unmistakably Mumbai.

Mumbai MastiCaptures the distinctive iconography of a melting pot of communities through a distinctly unconventional prism, It audaciously brings together two diverse creative energies with electric results. Globaily acclaimed designer Krsna Mehta takes his signature visual narrative to new levels of edginess while urban analyst Bachi Karkaria’s textual commentary is at once incisive and cheeky. This is a funny, zany, unabashedly honest portrait of a city like no other, replete with its graphic streets, its people, its serial celebrations and its alter ego, Bollywood.
