Cast And Crew
Sultana, a small town prostitute and her pimp Khudabaksh migrate to the metropolis bringing with them their dreams and meagre belongings.

One of these is Mohammed Bhai the 'Godfather' whose story converges with Sultana's though they never meet. Between all these people, goods, favours and money constantly change hands; and destinies are continuously transacted. From these skeins of chance meetings, seductive glances, elliptical encounters, graceful gestures and witticisms Kali Salwaar the film unfolds. Plot, colour, identities thicken and dissolveā¦.
