"Tommy Akhtar (Ahmed) is a down-at-the-heels London detective who always seems to have one too many problems on his plate. One day Melody (Cush Jumbo) walks into his office, like a classic femme fatale. Her friend Natasha has gone missing. Can Tommy help? Should he?

"As he scours London's streets for Natasha, he's drawn into a complex web. It begins with intimate betrayals but extends to scandals fairly ripped from today's headlines. And as he tries to solve the mystery in front of him, other secrets open up — ones surrounding a tragic accident buried deep in his past." (Toronto International Film Festival)Hide

The Press Reviews

  • 'City of Tiny Lights' is a disappointing and somewhat boring drama that rests almost entirely on Ahmed's captivating performance. Full Review

  • Engrossing, even if it doesn't quite measure up to its promise. Full Review

  • Attempts to bring a fresh perspective to the traditional film noir thriller but winds up falling back on all the old familiar cliches from world weary narration to flirtatious banter that falls far below the Bogart-Bacall benchmark. Full Review

  • Though pleasant enough to watch, there's something not fully realised about the final product here. Full Review
