MUMBAI: National Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar's short film "Mumbai Mist" received a positive response at the BRICS Film Festival in Chengdu, China.

The film premiered at the fest on Friday, and Bhandarkar was present there.

The story of the film themed on "where has the time gone" shows a bond shared between an old man and an orphan ragpicker, played by Annu Kapoor and child actor Master Devrath.

Since Bhandarkar has a soft corner for Bollywood classics, he used the song "Awaara hoon" from Raj Kapoor's film, and that brought back a moment of nostalgia for audience members, said a statement.

"Mumbai Mist" was part of The Magnificent Five - Directors Collaboration Project for the BRICS Film Festival.

Bhandarkar represented India, alongside globally-feted storytellers like Brazilian Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries fame), Chinese director-screenwriter Jia Zhangke, Russian storyteller Aleksey Fedorchenko and South African filmmaker Jahmil XT Qubeka.
