In the Bhojpuri language, ‘bidesia’ is the one who leaves home. One in four migrants in Mumbai is Bhojpuri, and they call India’s financial capital, ‘Bambai’. BIDESIA IN BAMBAI attempts to make the migrants visible in a city that renders them illegal, unwanted and invisible. Along with his meagre belongings, the migrant also brings with him a vibrant musical culture and the film is a celebration of that culture.
