The film premiered at the fest on Friday, and Bhandarkar was present there. The story of the film themed on “where has the time gone” shows a bond shared between an old man and an orphan ragpicker, played by Annu Kapoor and child actor Master Devrath.

Since Bhandarkar has a soft corner for Bollywood classics, he used the song “Awaara hoon” from Raj Kapoor’s film, and that brought back a moment of nostalgia for audience members, said a statement.

Mumbai Mist was part of The Magnificent Five - Directors Collaboration Project for the BRICS Film Festival.

Bhandarkar represented India, alongside globally-feted storytellers like Brazilian Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries fame), Chinese director-screenwriter Jia Zhangke, Russian storyteller Aleksey Fedorchenko and South African filmmaker Jahmil XT Qubeka.
