IndoGerman Film: Girangaon is yet another Mohen Jo Daro, [Marathi/Hindi], [OmeU], IND 2024, R.: Ashok Rane, 131 Min.

In the 1850s, a civilisation flourished around the cotton mills in Mumbai. This civilisation was known as Girangaon- the Abode of Mills, an offspring of the industrial revolution. The mill workers hailed from various regions of Maharashtra and other parts of India belonged to various castes, creeds, and religions, but eventually they became of one caste, one religion called - Mill Worker. They created their own region – Girangaon. Girangaon culture rejoiced in the unique sense of unity, an amazingly colourful and vibrant society - culturally rich, socially flexible and politically aware - played vital roles in many political movements. Deprivation and adverse conditions never let their zeal dampen or their energy wane. And then in 1982, a strike of mill-workers marked total devastation of Girangaon! The mill worker is nowhere to be seen since! Girangaon ceased to exist. Girangaon is Yet Another Mohenjodaro.
