The Merchant-Ivory team are behind this detailed portrait of the red light district of Bombay, which is filmed as part-documentary, part-drama. The actors function primarily as narrators, detailing the impoverishment that leads otherwise chaste Indian women to seek out work as 'courtesans' - entertaining men by singing, dancing and performing as well as providing sexual favours.
