'Other Kohinoors' is a film tribute to the rocks of Hyderabad - a beautiful documentary in the making that celebrates the majestic rockscapes and the stories around them - unfortunately getting lost to urban development at a rapid pace. It is an engaging, entertaining and extensively researched labour of love directed by Ms. Uma Magal, and co-produced by Ms. Mahnoor Yar Khan - both ardent lovers of the Rocks!
