SYNOPSIS

Painted frame-by-frame at PaperBoat Animation Studios in India, Bombay Rose took two years to complete production. Rao’s designs lend a lushness that reflects the intricacies of love in its many forms. Romance blossoms between Kamala, a Hindu flower-seller who moonlights as a dancer, and Salim, a Muslim who has moved from Kashmir only to struggle to survive on Mumbai’s bustling streets.

Love cuts across other lines also; Kamala’s younger sister, Tara befriends the much older Shirley, who is trying to come to terms with love’s loss. Rao gracefully strings together these stories with a single red rose, a powerful symbol of how hope and beauty can persist, even in spite of the odds.
