“A highly imaginative panoramic portrait of [Old Delhi] … a thrilling, endlessly mutable tribute to one of the oldest, most vibrant parts of one of the world’s great cities.” – The Hollywood Reporter

On the streets of Old Delhi, a charismatic pickpocket takes visitors on a tour of the city’s teeming and obscured underbelly. Here an eclectic and entrancing cast of street vendors, factory workers, cleaners, rickshaw drivers, slum kids and labourers live their lives and chase their dreams, telling stories of a Delhi unrecognisable to those merely passing through.

Based on the accounts of the residents of Old Delhi – many of whom star in the film – Taking the Horse to Eat Jalebis is the bold and utterly unique feature film debut from acclaimed theatre director and playwright Anamika Haksar. A sprawling, multi-focal exercise in style, genre and cinematic technique, it is by turns comic, tragic and surreal, hurtling from animated dreamscape to documentary realism with a vividness and verve that befits Old Delhi itself.
