Accidental wrong turns on the streets of Mumbai often lead to surprises. A few very specific turns in Girgaon, the old heart of Mumbai, elicit a gasp from even the toughest critics of the city. For, just beyond these turns lies Khotachiwadi, a quaint urban village. A cacophony of curving, winding lanes, colorful Burma teak houses with verandas, chawls, and Art Deco buildings, all inhabited by generation upon generation of the same family. This village, unique to Mumbai, is one of many. These villages are a testimony to the layers of history that this city is steeped in. Each of its unique features a remnant from every era lived through. If only these spaces could speak. "Konachi wadi?" is a film that tries to give a voice to Khotachiwadi. It explores what can be defined as a wadi. Is a wadi just a tumble of galleries and buildings, or is there something more to it?: the call of a fisherwoman, the couple that fell in love across balconies, the chapel with its neon cross, and the house next to it where someone strums a guitar while the beer warms with droplets of condensation and dusk becomes night.
