The Last Music Store
Directed by Megha Ramaswamy
The Last Music Store documents the curtains going down on the iconic Rhythm House. Bombay city’s last & oldest large format music and video store finally yields to the challenges posed by new technologies and piracy and this crumble is captured via the lament of the store’s eccentric, long-dedicated, working inmates who are coping with the situation in their own manner.
