Armaan Ali, a driver working for a Senior Executive in Mumbai, goes on leave. He wants to find a match for his teenage daughter, whom he’s left with his brother Rehman Ali and his wife Salma. When Armaan returns to work after 3 months his young employer wants to sack him.
But Armaan Ali has a story to tell. The story he tells is a humorous and often hilarious account of the events and happenings that delayed him from returning after a month. He avails a government scheme to dig a well in his agricultural patch. Things spiral out of control so much so that the Government is about to collapse! The question remains, how true is this compelling story!
The film is a political satire that veers from the farcical to the often witty and sharp but largely ironic comedy without losing sight of its central theme that deals with the many development projects that the government has initiated which frequently get hijacked by systemic corruption. Among the high points of the film are the brilliant performances of the actors and the pulsating, lyrical and melodious songs composed by Shantanu Moitra.
