Synopsis

On 27 Down, the Bombay-Varanasi train line, Sanjay recalls moments from his life as familiar landscapes emerge along the way. When young, his father had been crippled by a work-related accident on a train. Then Sanjay started working as a ticket inspector, where he met and fell in love with Shalini.

Our take

Shot in black and white, 27 Down underlines the transient nature of life through its recurring motifs of railway stations and running trains. Based on Hindi novel Athara Sooraj Ke Paudhe, the film indelibly portrays the evolution of the relationship between a young couple in mid 70s Bombay.
