Manish is a young and talented street dancer from the City of Dreams, Mumbai. He struggles against his parents’ insistence that he follow a traditional path because they depend on their only son's support. When he accidentally walks into an inner-city dance school and encounters a curmudgeonly 70-year-old Israeli ballet master, a hunger develops within him. Ambitious and passionate, Manish is now determined to make it as a professional dancer, but the odds are stacked against him. A true-life fairytale from the streets of Mumbai to the stages of New York.
A story of perseverance, rebellion, passion, family, culture, and an unlikely friendship – filmed in India, Israel, the U.K., and the U.S. and featuring music from legendary artist Jay Sean (@jaysean) and Anik Khan (@anikkhan_), and a score by Nainita Desai (@nainita_desai).
Call Me Dancer will make you want to jump up from your seat and, Yes, dance!
