His lips move.Krishna is different from the other boys at the cheap Delhi hotel where he works- he’s a mimic, a poet and a scholar wallah, for a start. His dreams of flying from ‘country pumpkin’ to Mr. Big-shot, launch him on a drug-fuelled trip through the dark-side, as murder, tragedy and terrorism prove that the worst-laid plans are bound to go astray. Fortune smiles and Krishna sprawls in a first-class carriage. But the signals change, the tracks merge and the faint light at the end of the tunnel seems dimmer than ever, as he is trapped between the cops and the robbers, forced to ask not only which train he’s on, but who is taking the ride.This dark comedy of power, ambition and confused identity presents Krishna’s acid view of India, and his sideways squint at western culture.
