Editor Review: City Of Gold Movie Review
After Vaastav, ' City Of Gold' is Mahesh Manjrekar' s another take on the violent streak of Mumbai. But this is a real one. ' City Of Gold' inspired from the plight of the cotton mill workers of Mumbai from 80s. The film is a tragic tale of those workers when the mills closed rapidly and big, luxurious shopping malls took over those. It' s not just a realistic or violent cinema, but has lot many things, which an avid film watcher will like. ' City Of Gold' with Mahesh Manjrekar stamp is enough reason to give it a one chance. The film has become special because of its fine actors. ' City Of Gold' is about Mumbai, so go and watch it to discover more about your favourite city. ' City Of Gold' – Recommended!

Mahesh Manjrekar is no doubt one of the best story tellers in Indian film industry. We have witnessed a good number of films from his factory which includes ' Vaastav' , ' Astitva' , ' Nidan' , ' Virrudh' , ' Kaante' and many others. However ' Vaastav' is his most acknowledged film till date. So, whether ' City Of Gold' has worked up to his standard of work? Indeed or we can say ' City Of Gold' is the next big thing after Vaastav by the director.

' City Of Gold' depicts the tragic tale of the mill workers of Mumbai from 80s. Many of us may not know the truth that the today' s flashy destinations - malls, night clubs of the city - are built on the ashes of those cotton mills. Those mill workers were the real pioneers of the today' s business capital (Mumbai), but following the strike in 80s, the mills were closed one by one and the mill workers became history with the blink of an eye. ' City Of Gold' tells the story of one of those affected worker' s family and their struggle for earnings.

So you might think that ' City Of Gold' is one more realistic cliché film. Don' t know whether Manjrekar has depicted the situation completely or not, but the film holds lot that a movie bug will love. In some sequences you will get the feel of ' Vaastav' .

Let us warn you that it includes violence, betrayal in relationships and also the language used might shake you. Meanwhile these are the things which actually work best to make a good film. Plus to the material is the right casting. Every actor, most of whom are from the Marathi film industry - Siddharth Jadhav, Sachin Khedekar, Sameer Dharmadhikari, Vinay Apte, Seema Biswas, Satish Kaushik, Shashank Shende, Ganesh Yadav, Veena Jamkar, Kashmira Shah and Vineet Singh - all are supremely talented. Every one of them, despite the length of their role leaves a mark on your mind with their performance. However, one actor who stands out is Karan Patel. He has given a sensational performance.

Mahesh Manjrekar made the movie in two languages Marathi (Lalbaug Parel) and Hindi (City Of Gold). He has handled many of the sequences in a very unique way. ' City Of Gold' off-course is recommended. It' s the story of those wounded spirits, who were once the shine (gold) of the city. Watch it to know some unknown truths of the city that never sleeps, Mumbai.
