Indian cinema can celebrate a new voice with Manjeet Singh's debut, "Mumbai's King." The story of a young slum-dweller and his friends may sound like just another pic in the "Slumdog Millionaire" mold, yet Singh's vision is grittier, and refuses to turn deprivation into spectacle. Not that there aren't moments of delight, and the young stars themselves have charisma galore, but the helmer-scripter is more interested in capturing a world than offering bittersweet uplift.
