What is common to a decrepit old tenement in Central Mumbai undergoing redevelopment, a disillusioned retired trade unionist mill worker Ganpatrao Padwal and his son Raghu Padwal? Hope Express takes you through the sights and smells of the maximum city sometimes through Raghu and his petty news world of crime, scandal and gossip and sometimes through the chawl and its motley characters. Narrated with smells of fried Bombay duck, sounds of ‘fast underarm’ cricket tournaments and sights of a working class Mumbai that is fast fading away, Hope Express is an authentic story of that fast changing landscape in the twenty first century Mumbai.
