NAKUL Kapoor is a 20 something, a corporate executive who decides to visit his parents at Vadodara. He is soon asked to report back to work. In his office he struggles through a cobweb comprising an unacknowledged position at work that leaves him with nothing but the feeling of being an objectified resource. He has to deal with a stupid boss who thinks he is a smart Alec, a gorgeous girlfriend but who can’t think below D&G and Gucci when it comes to shopping with his credit card and an extra pious room-mate, named Kohinoor, who thinks that watching sleazy films and lusting after material comforts are trivialities that one needs to rise above.
Every parent would wish his child would turn out to be, a Casanova who every parent would wish his child would not turn out to be, two self-undermined scholars who get periodic pangs of guilt for having no direction in their lives and who themselves wish they were something different from what they have turned out to be. And then a roller coaster ride begins, where emotions and dreams are born, nurtured and in some ways injured too.
