Mumbai is probably the worst city to live in the entire world. There is no space here and a tiny piece of reclaimed land surrounded by sea is occupied by more than 20 million people.
There is absolutely no greenery here and Mumbai is terrible in every sense of the word.
Half of Mumbai lives in slums. Mumbai is surely the dirtiest city in the world. Much much worse than New Delhi. New Delhi's main problem is air pollution, due to stubble burning in Haryana and Punjab.
Mumbai is a place filled with few billionaire industrialists and Bollywood celebrities. Then you have the plethora of slums to serve these billionaires.

Mumbai has time and again proven that it is a worst city hiding behind the facade of marketing. The Covid-19 cases are very poorly controlled over here.
People here only care about money and the slum dweller dreams of becoming a billionaire overnight.
Mumbai is NOT the place for the average common man. It's a place meant for slum-dwellers, beggars and billionaires.

I am in Mumbai since Birth. The truth is the police are one who are not cooperative with the one who register a complain. Actually the people are very helpful people will stand for the right when police is not around because my experience says they are always with the political mafia. They always take the side of the person who has more money power

Mumbai is by far the dirtiest and worst Indian city. More than 50% of Mumbai comprises of only slums. There are plenty of prostitutes also that live in these slums.
Mumbai Underworld is notorious for its crimes and all Mumbaikars are afraid of them. Celebrities pay huge amounts of cash to the Mumbai Underworld, or their lives will be in danger.
You will really struggle to find accommodation in Mumbai. The house prices over here are extremely expensive. The beaches such as Chowpatty are filthy to the core.
Mumbai by far has the worst Quality of Life in India, and probably the entire world. If you ever want to visit a Dystopia, look no further than Mumbai. Your search for Dystopia ends here.

Mumbai has the worst police force in the whole world. Police routinely take favour anti-social elements such as rickshaw drivers, taxi drivers and other criminals such as pimps and prostitutes. The police often use them as a tool to extort money from people. Police often in Mumbai use 3rd degree torture methods such as burning and electric shocks on innocents to extort money from them. However police will SHAKE HANDS with criminals. How do you expect a city like this to be safe? There are regular road rages and street fights also where police favour the wrong person.

Mumbai has the best Marketing team in India.
The house prices and rent prices in Mumbai are ridiculously expensive. The pay in companies is also very low.

Mumbai is a REAL HELL on earth. 1 out of every 2 people you'll meet in Mumbai will surely be a slum dweller.
Mumbai is rightly called the SLUM CITY OF INDIA.
The sticky climate, awful congestion, traffic jams and severe rushes in local trains, sweating, severe flooding, extreme rent prices, organized crime, lack of trees, loud noise, stinking beaches and horrible filth throughout the city have certainly made Mumbai have the worst Quality of Life.
Mumbai is the most exaggerated, and by far the most OVERRATED city in India and the world.

Went to Mumbai by accident after ordering the wrong flight tickets. Before you know it, I was at Heathrow with only my loyal Nintendo DSI for company. 'Come on Squirtle' I said, as I boarded the flight with anticipation, thinking about what if Johan Elmander had a better goal to game ration in a Bolton shirt? The city was nice, crime wasn't an issue, but my DS dies on the way back. 4/10.

Very different from Mumbai but that's who I love India it has many doors to so many different worlds you feel like you are visiting a different country at every state ..the people look so diverse too ..all shades ,all features ,all different characterstics ..very beautiful people ,especially in the hilly regions where so many could be models !!..I was in awe of the flora ,wildlife and human diversity ..so many different religions ,cultures ,ethnicities and languages ..Mumbai is a great hot spot to have a look at Indias huge vast melting pot ..it can be overwhelming as it is a very busy place but it is an extremely exciting city to be part of ..it offers a lot and contrary to the biased media I felt safer in Mumbai than London where I can't even walk the streets at night in fear of uk youth gangs ...love Indis it's beautiful ,rich and a magical place ..I also visited Punjab and too the person who said 'Indian' men are weedy haha please visit Punjab and himachal where the men are HUGE and much more bulky and built than the average man in general ..I saw Sikhs that were nearer 7ft!! And it was no exception go check out the Sikhs in Amritsar who have ancestral history of farming and warrior history ..rural Indians are extremely well built ..the jat and Pathan are more built and regal looking in stature than the average mousey Brit
