Cinema can help you better your life. Film stars can give you moral and spiritual messages which can uplift you. Sagai believes this. Sagai is a film buff and his idol is South Indian Superstar Rajnikant. He grew up watching films in a semi legal video theater in the Mumbai slums. When he came of age he started working in the same place, as did his father before him. The video theatre now no longer exists. In an eloquent and often politically incorrect streetspeak, Sagai tells us the story of his video theatre alongside his trip with films.
