Picture this: Ram dons Raavan’s avatar. Sita zips off on a scooty with ‘beary’ ‘good friend’ Hanuman. Laksman is out of sight. And a brand new Ramleela plays out; where even the mighty Raavan (with all ten heads) can’t crack his part. Gods must be crazy, alright, in this kalyug ki Ramayan. More comedy, less chastity. More drama, less dagabaaz.
The stage is set and it’s showtime folks. All starting one night when theater actor/director Ram Parmar (Ayushmann) saves a lonely soul, Mandar Lele (Kunaal) from committing suicide. In a godly act, Ram takes on the sole responsibility (no divine intervention, please) of giving loser Lele a new lease of life. Ram trains him to enact (Lord) Ram in his play Raavan-Leela, while he also dramatizes a series of acts to reunite Lele with his estranged lovergal, Nandini (Pooja). Romeo-Juliet RIP! There’s more drama coming up. All hell (or is it heaven) break loose in Ram’s life when he crosses the lakshman rekha. The acts get mixed up, roles reversed; ironically his self-created Ram katha goes kaput, leading to a comedy of errors of ‘epic’ proportions. Call it Act of God if you wish! (Hey, Ram!)
