    Description
    Jami is the Gigolo King of Kalkatta. A Bihari smuggled into India from Bangladesh, he is given refuge by his uncle, a leader of the ruling Communist Party and grows up in Zakaria Street, dreaming of becoming a pukka Kolkata - wallah. When friendship with a local gang leads to his dropping out of school, he ends up as assistant to a passport forger and then as a masseur. Kalkatta opens its doors and Jami is soon drawn into the world of the rich and famous, housewives, tourists and, occasionally, high-paying and dangerous �parties�. His life takes a turn when he meets a young boy, Pablo and his mother Mandira. But his love for the boy threatens to destroy everything and even drive him away from his beloved city.
