Remix The Reel! Documentaries From The Mumbai Film Festival You Need To Watch


Truth is always a lot stranger than fiction. Documentaries are where ‘based on a real story’ gets a lot more real. Watch stories about the world we live in unfold on the screen.

So grab some popcorn and get ready for #FilmFestAtHome! Tata Sky brings you the best documentaries from the Mumbai Film Festival every weekend this October and November.

Cities Of Sleep

When nightmares appear before they can go to sleep.Language: Hindi
Awards: Best Documentary – Seattle South Asian Film Festival


Our cities are running on little sleep as filmmaker Shaunak Sen and his crew find out. Where do you go when the day ends if you’re homeless? Between dangers like floods and the sleep mafia, a night’s rest becomes a question of life and death on the streets of Delhi.
Why watch?
As the homeless float from park benches to parking lots in the night, the film explores social and political pressures that play into the psychology of sleep.
He Named Me Malala
A teenager’s battle for her right to education – and that of millions around the world.
1. Language: English
2. Awards: Primetime Creative Emmy Awards, Best Documentary – Golden Trailer Awards, and more

Hunted by the Taliban for daring to speak up for the education of women, she faced a bullet and continued the fight. Davis Guggenheim’s documentary tells the story of Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teenager who worries about test scores and the events that lead to her becoming an activist and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
Why watch?
For contemporary history being made and a legacy that’s still being written, Guggenheim’s film is a closer look at the bigger picture. Special mention – Thomas Newman’s soundtrack.
The raw ambitions and dreams of the youth witnessed by an infiltrator.
1. Language: English, Hindi
2. Awards: Special Jury Award – EBS International Documentary Film Festival, Jury Nomination Award – International Documentary Film Festival, and more

What does it take to get into one of the top medical schools in the country and come out with flying colours? Surviving the cut-throat competition, pressure to succeed, depression, violence, and sometimes suicide. Abhay Kumar’s documentary explores life at AIIMS, Delhi with brutally honest interviews, his introspective narrative, and surreal animation.
Why watch?
If the fact that the filmmaker had to be undercover to make the documentary isn’t compelling enough, watch it for a chilling final montage.

Lal Bhi Udhaas Ho Sakta Hai
Piecing together an artist from his pieces of art.
1. Language: Hindi
2. Awards: Indian Panorama – International Film Festival of India

If every work of art is a self-portrait, filmmaker Amit Dutta tries to find out who Ram Kumar is through his body of work. Borrowing from the past, present, fiction, and imagery of the celebrated litterateur and painter, the documentary reveals a closer look at the man and the artist.
Why watch?
A film where the artist is more muse than subject – it is a private visit to Ram Kumar’s gallery and personal library at once.
Kaagaz Ki Kashti
The celebration of the life of the late ghazal legend – Jagjit Singh.
1. Language: Hindi

Brahmanand S. Siingh’s biographical documentary on the Ghazal King is a treat to anyone who grew up humming his tunes. Jagjit Singh’s life told through music, interviews, and anecdotes is a heartfelt tribute to the singer whose musical influence is still alive and well today.
Why watch?

Relive the story behind the classics and float down memory lane with the voice that came to define the genre for millions.
