Dialog presents an intriguing communication through the soul of the streets and the tireless workforce of the city of Mumbai. The musical short film infuses organic sounds into poignant melodies to tell a story in the form of lore.

Dialog initiates a conversation on the efficacies of the grit and the vehemence with which the various workers, hawkers and labourers of the city earn their daily bread.

The film draws inspiration from the famous words of Plato: “Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”
