How are the challenges posed by the city structure in Mumbai met by its dwellers’ ability to innovate and adapt?
"Jugaad" is a Hindi word roughly translated as an innovative fix or an efficient solution that bends the rules. It represents a flexible approach towards cohabitation that is inseparable from the daily lives of Mumbaikars.
With the absent of commentary and constant dialogue, this film invites the audience to experience the multi-layered cohabitation -- each group actively creates a space for themselves and generates their personal daily ritual when navigating through Mumbai.
