Brief synopsis

If God would come down to earth and try to earn a living in Bombay, most probably he would very soon become successful as a voice over artiste, lending his voice to thousands of hindi movies and even more documentaries and public service films in India.

A melo-dramatic docu-drama with voice-over in stop-motion and long-time exposure.
