Jugaad

How are the challenges posed by the city structure in Mumbai met by its dwellers’ ability to innovate and adapt? Jugaad is a Hindi word roughly translated as an innovative fix or an efficient solution that bends the rules. It represents a flexible approach towards cohabitation that is inseparable from the daily lives of Mumbaikars. With the absent of commentary and constant dialogue, this film invites the audience to experience the multilayered cohabitation — each group actively creates a space for themselves and generates their personal daily ritual when navigating through Mumbai.
