‘CityLights’ is made at a budget of less than Rs 6 crore (including production and marketing). Market analysts say the movie is doing good business as it has already earned an impressive amount from satellite rights and music.

Storyline: ‘CityLights’ has an Indian story that has the fragrance of our own people. It is based on the life of a farmer in Rajasthan who comes to the metro city of Mumbai along with his wife and daughter, hoping a better life. The story revolves around the challenges they face. They encounter with the harsh realities of a demanding city like Mumbai. How they fight the odds with the power of their love is the story all about.
