Mahesh Bhatt starrer ‘The Dark Side Of Life-Mumbai City’ fails to withdraw the message which it was supposed to do. The film can be a mood killer for those who want to feel the emotions and pity for the characters of the film, as it was shown in the trailer.

Even the trailer had more emotions than the movie. Stories of seven individuals living in metro city like Mumbai, have their own disappointments with life and the city. With some turn of events they all, under different circumstances, decide to end their lives.

Sumit Balsaria (Kay Kay Menon) a stock market broker, Warren Lobo (Deepraj Rana) a Police Inspector, Kadambari Chauhan (Sayed Gul) an actress, Prince (Avii Pardasni) a wannabe singer, Anand (Nikhil Ratnaparkhi) an insurance agent, Kavya (Neha Khan) the pampered daughter of an industrialist, Zulfiqar Hussain (Mahesh Bhatt) an old man who shelters homeless people at his place and Meer Hassan (Irfanouzzaman) a Kashmiri visiting the city, are the seven individuals, around whom the story revolve.

The story goes flat after some time. Audience does not feel connected to the pain or feel pity to even one character.

However, most of the cast, including- Mahesh Bhatt and Kay Kay Menon, played strong and left an imprint on the viewers. Length of the movie is also mood killer, audience lost interest by the second half.

Avii Pardasani as a wannabe singer also impresses but most of the cast is depressing.

The film might have been adaptation to an English film ‘Crash’ which was released in 2004 but failed to adapt properly.
