What is City of Joy about?

Hazari Pal lives in a small village in Bihar, India, with his dad, mom, wife, Kamla, daughter, Amrita, and two sons, Shambhu and Manooj. As the Pal are unable to repay the loan they had taken years ago from a moneylender, their land and property are auctioned, and they are rendered homeless. Hazari and his family re-locate to Calcutta with hopes of starting life anew, save some money and go back to Bihar, as well as get Amrita married. Things do not go as planned, as they lose their entire savings to a con-man, Gangooly, who took their money as rent by pretending to be a landlord. Then Hazari gets an opportunity to take up driving a rickshaw manually through a local godfather, Ghatak. He gets to meet a American, Dr. Max Lowe, and together they strike up a friendship along with a local social worker, Joan Bethel. Misunderstandings crop up between Joan and the Godfather, resulting in the shutting down of their shanty medical clinic. When Hazari sides with Joan, his rickshaw is taken away. Things get worse when the Godfather passes away, leaving his estate to his way-ward son, Ashok Ghatak, who has plans to do away with the slums, especially the lepers who have now started frequenting the locality, Max, Joan and above all Hazari himself, and he is determined to take the "joy" of living in Calcutta.

Where to watch City of Joy


Streaming on Netflix

Netflix is one of the true originals when it comes to online streaming. They have a huge catalogue of TV Shows, Movies, Kids TV and Documentaries that include both classic and original content.

Got a question about Netflix?

Netflix doesn’t reveal the size of its ever-changing library, but it’s estimated to have around 6,000 titles available to stream. It’s one of the most popular streaming providers in the UK thanks to series such as Sex Education, The Crown and Bridgerton.
If you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer, you can easily add Netflix to your existing monthly bill. Like standard Netflix customers, you’re free to cancel the service whenever you want.
It could be argued that Netflix has a little more for the whole family. Kids TV and movie selections, in particular, are very strong compared to Amazon. However, Netflix does not have live sports like its American counterpart.
