When I first heard the story I was sure that this deserves to be made into a film and as they say, the rest is history,” says a proud father and also the direcrtor of the film Dushyant Pratap Singh. The Hundred Bucks is the story of 1 night in Mumbai revolving around Mohini, a prostitute and her autodriver. How they struggle the whole night finding customers for money, deal with cops, politicians etc only to end up with a meagre 100 bucks at the end of it all is what this film is about. It’s a gritty tale of the lives and miseries of women who choose such means to make money but even at that their struggle is no end.
