Traffic Signal (2007) directed by Madhur Bhandarkar is an award winning Bollywood movie featuring Kunal Khemu and Neetu Chandra in lead roles.
This film is about the lives and travails of people living around a traffic signal in Mumbai. Silsila (Kunal Khemu) is the 'manager' of one traffic signal i.e. he collects the 'hafta' (protection tax) from each signal squatter plying his trade. There's Tsunami, a little scavenger boy, there's Rani (Neetu Chandra) a Gujrati girl selling ethnic clothes on the side walk, and there's Dominic (Ranvir Shorey) a drug addict and the prostitute who feels for him. Silsila, who's an orphan, reports to Jaffer Bhai (D. Santosh) the local goon. Jaffer bhai in turn reports to Haji (Sudhir Mishra) the leader of the local mafia. And the hafta, from each traffic signal and territory that Haji controls, seeps upward to the politicians. Life is routine, until Silsila and Jaffer Bhai get caught up in a chain of events which threatens the very source of their livelihood - the traffic signal itself. What faith does the life on traffic signal holds? Watch the movie to know more.
