THE LIFT BOY is a coming of age story of a 24-year-old vagabond played by Moin Khan, who is forced to work at a posh building in Mumbai as a Lift Boy when his bread-winning father falls ill. Through this slice of life, feel good story we see the protagonist go through 4 phases- denial, acceptance, evolution & mastery. The film metaphorically expresses the fact that there is a lift boy in each one of us and life is like a lift, sometimes it takes us up & sometimes it takes us down depending on the buttons we press aka choices we make. The film celebrates- dignity of labour, our domestic support system (The Lift Boy) whom most people ignore, a strong universal father-son relationship and strives to show the world an aspirational and inspirational India (Panache in Poverty).
