Certain issues continue to make waves and hit headlines. Issues like the influx of people from the Northern states to Mumbai, or the one where, allegedly, residential societies don’t seem too keen to allot flats to members of a particular community…
N. Chandra encompasses all this and more in YEH MERA INDIA. The style of narrating the stories is akin to CRASH, while the storytelling is similar to Chandra’s accomplished works ANKUSH and PRATIGHAAT – two films that made him an iconic figure then.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM

Final word? YEH MERA INDIA has its heart in the right place. Here’s a film that pricks your conscience and makes you think. Recommended!
YEH MERA INDIA is an attempt to explore the real stories behind the headlines. These stories deal with racial bias, communal bias, caste bias, class bias, gender bias, lingual bias and immigrant bias that plague the society.
