Vishnu, the odd-job man in a Bombay apartment block, lies dying on the staircase landing. In his fevered state, he looks back on his love affair with the seductive Padmini while around him is played out the drama of the apartment block dwellers. Blending Hindu mythology with acutely observed social detail and a dash of Bollywood sparkle, THE DEATH OF VISHNU is a breathtaking debut.
