Here's a look at the day 5 events at The Mumbai Film Festival.

1 Gloomy day at mff
The mood and turnout at the festival remained rather glum on Tuesday. Most attributed the lack of enthusiasm to the loss of veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, whose funeral was held on October 22. In memoriam, the organisers maintained a minute's silence before all screenings to pay respect to the industry's loss.

2 Celebrities in attendance
Imaad Shah and girlfriend Saba Azad have diligently been watching all the films. Naseeruddin Shah's younger son, Vivaan Shah, also made an appearance at the screening on Monday. Other celebrities spotted at the event were Oscar award-winning sound designer-turned-producer Resul Pookutty. Reema Kagti, the director of Aamir Khan's next release, Talaash, was seen hobnobbing with south Mumbai's elite crowd. Aditya Pancholi and Shernaz Patel were also seen hanging around.

3 Looking London, talking Tokyo
The film 1975, Seven Beauties, which was screened at Liberty as part of the Celebration of Italian Cinema, got all of 15 to 200 viewers. The fact that the subtitles were not in sync with the frames might have had something to do with the turnout.
