CityLights is an upcoming Bollywood thriller directed by Hansal Mehta in association with Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt starring Rajkummar Rao and debutant Patralekha in the lead. This BAFTA nominated flick is a remake of 2013's Metro Mania.
The movie is the second one between Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao, who both won the National Award in 2013 for Best Director and Best Actor respectively, for Shahid.The plot revolves around an apparel dealer from Rajasthan who is compelled to migrate to Mumbai owning to a crippling debt. The movie expounds the glamour, crimes, trials and trepidations of city life. CityLights which was initially scheduled to hit cinemas on May 1st, 2014, is now procrastinated to the 30th of May.
The soundtrack composed by Jeet Ganguly with vocals by Neeti Mohan, Arjit Singh, Mohmmad Irfan and Usha Uthup is very soothing, catchy and lyrically true. It relates to the tragedies of urban dwellings.
The movie is anticipated to unveil the harsh realities of metropolises while embodying the message 'once you step in, there's no way out'. We are all praise for CityLights for now and hope that the movie fulfills the expectations of the people.
