Mumbai Mafia: Police vs The Underworld

Hailing from series directors Francis Longhurst and Raaghav Dar, this feature documentary follows the battle for the future of Mumbai which raged on the city’s streets between police and organised crime through the 1990s. On one side: D-Company — an infamous group of gangsters known for being a ruthless, violent operation who use extortion, racketeering, drugs and finally terrorism to hold the city in a bulldog grip. On the other: A rising band of Encounter Specialists — a team of maverick moustachioed police officers tasked with taking back control of the streets. In this immersive feature documentary, visceral interviews with the officers at the heart of the fight will drive the police narrative, untangling the psychology behind their tactics as the situation on the streets escalates.
