Hg2’s Favourite Mumbai Videos

Given that Mumbai is the home of Bollywood, it’s only fitting that many people have chosen to capture its vibrant spirit on film. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite short films that pay tribute to this vast, sprawling, many-faceted city.

Mumbai Bombay at Night

A Day In Mumbai            

This short film by Vincent Kardasik casts a slow, meditative glance over busy Mumbai’s street life and its many people going about their day.


The most colourful time to visit Mumbai is during Holi, the Indian festival of colours, when people take to the streets to fling multi-coloured powders and paints at each other in joyous abandon. We love this stunning film by production team Variable that captures Holi in all its vivid hues.

The City of Dreams and Dust

Filmmaker Aditya Jella brings to life the fast pace of Mumbai’s streets in stop-motion style. With so much going on and so much to see, Mumbai is a visual feast, and this film really gives us a taster.

Mumbai in Timelapse

We love a good timelapse, and this is a great example. White Horse Productions asked people on social networking sites what they thought were the busiest and most-visited places in Mumbai, then set up a camera to watch the crowds flood by.

Bombay Chaupati

Even Mumbai has its calm moments. After the heat and chaos of the day, people of all walks of life take to the Mumbai shoreline to relax and savour the sunset in this film by Kunal Sen.
