The next big Hindi blockbuster Isaq Benaraswala is being shot on the ghats of Varanasi (Benaras). Two locals, Mosambi and Narangi, are thrilled at being cast in this epic film. The glitz and glamour of Bollywood have always been a part of their dreams. Now they have the chance to be in an actual potboiler, to sing and dance with the beautiful and famous heroine Sabrina, to fight the goondas, to become reel-life heroes. But they are only two extras trapped and stuck on the set…in continuity. As they struggle to understand the functioning of the Hindi film business, the make-believe glamour of Bollywood quickly fades away and the reality of being extras kicks in. Mosambi Narangi, adapted from the award-winning play Stones In His Pockets written by Marie Jones, is a comic yet poignant take on the effects of the great Bollywood dream on a small town.
