As the movie unfolds, the other characters are introduced in the movie. A married Muslim woman Yasmeen played by Kriti Malhotra in whose home Amir shifts for his new project ideas. She records the daily lives of her surroundings for her brother back home in UP and the tapes have been left behind along with some other belongings while the family may be changing homes. The character of Munna played by Prateik Babbar does a job of a dhobi and soon falls in love with Miss Shai.
Movie then unfolds the tale of the lives of the characters and those whom they are in touch with. From hints of laughter, to the intense character of an artist, to the life of a dhobi, all seem to be intermingled in one another. Not just another life in a metro but rather different in its own way. Not too long and neither too short to leave the mystery unsolved, Dhobi Ghat is still director and writer Kiran Rao's good attempt at first shot.
