Ladies Special | Indian Documentary

LADIES SPECIAL: English, Hindi and Marathi with subtitles, 28 mins, 2003
Directed by Nidhi Tuli

Screened as part of Vikalp: Films for Freedom in Pune, July 31 - August 29, 2004

Bombay remains India’s most diverse and vibrant city, the city of dreams, the one paved with gold, the one that never sleeps, where almost anyone has the chance to change his or her life for the better.

One of the many things that keeps the city paved with gold and awake all night is the enormously efficient commuter train service that ferries more than 3 million people a day to and from their workplace. Tuli’s Ladies Special travels with working women on a Western Railway train reserved for them and, for a brief time, the camera and crew become part of the spontaneous community that this train has engendered.
